German Weddings, the Reception and Dance: Part 3 of German Weddings

An old German wedding custom, the tradition of cutting a log represents the first obstacle that the couple must overcome in their marriage. They must work together to “overcome the obstacle” by sawing through the log. Using a large, long saw with two handles, the couple demonstrates their teamwork to friends and family, and their willingness and ability to master the difficulties that inevitably arise in a marriage.

This is an old German wedding tradition. A bed sheet is strung up and a large heart shape is painted to the front of it. The bride and groom each get a pair of scissors and have to cut around each side of the heart and meet in the middle. The groom then has to carry his bride through the heart. Could this tradition be any cuter?!?!
