A Polish Wedding Part 2 Before the Ceremony
Here is the 2nd part of a series of Blogs about my experience at a Polish wedding.
The day of the wedding, everyone gathers at the home of the bride prior to going to the church. There is a band that plays music as the guests arrive. The guests approach the bride who is standing with her spouse to be, and give the bride a small bouquet of flowers. By the tiem it is all done... she has quite the collection of floral gifts!
Everyone is mingling with others, there are a number of people who are unfamiliar with members of the other spouses family, so this give them a little time to get to know them a little better.

After all the guests have arrived, the bride and groom get into their vehicle and proceed to the church with the guests following along.
