As of late I've been looking up German and Italian wedding traditions as a way for my fiance and me to incorporate our heritage into our wedding day. I have to say one of the funnier German traditions I found is the bride and groom saw the end of a log off immediately following the ceremony to symbolize the first difficult thing they have to work through as a married couple. I laughed at first, but now it sounds kind of fun! Don't you think? Ja vol!
