In The Spirit Of Things
Yesterday marked the 1 month countdown for the wedding so it was time for the very old Southern tradition of "burying the bourbon". In an effort to have some fun and get away from the store-bought, same old humdrum wedding, we are incorporating several old but almost forgotten traditions to add a little life. According to this tradition, if you are planning an outdoor wedding, you must bury a bottle of true bourbon, upside down, in the area of the ceremony exactly one month before the actually day. This assures that you will have nice weather for your wedding! Of course, it's just done for fun but it doesn't hurt if it works! So, Jack picked this large tulip poplar by the house and dug the hole.
A favorite brand! I mostly just took pictures because my back is still messed up. We did put the bottle in a plastic bag so as to keep it a little cleaner, hopefully.
And in the hole ya go! I'm not sure why it has to be upside down but whatever! Then we both covered it back up and put a rock on top to mark the spot.
We picked our rings up the other day and I'll show ya'll those also. A guy I went to college with made them for us so they are unique. Now, I just have to find something to wear!
