What other traditions did you have on your wedding day?  “We had our morning traditions at both homes. The groom’s guests at his house, and the bride’s family at her house. All of the groom’s guests then make their way to the bride’s home so both families could celebrate together.”

What stand out pieces did you have on your wedding day? “Both families celebrate together (at the brides house) before they leave for the ceremony, whilst the bride is bought (with money) by the Groom's cousin and then taken to church."

“We had fireworks on entry and during the bridal waltz and a Serbian traditional dance group who performed during the wedding.”
