Traditions and Customs

Departure of the Bride and Groom

Traditionally a time for the best man and friends of the couple to be a little mischievous. They would decorate the going away car with balloons, crazy foam and tin cans without the couples' knowledge. The best man would announce the departure of the newlyweds, who by this time would have changed into their going away outfits. The guests would usually participate in the throwing of confetti or rice over the happy couple.

So as not to disappoint the guests, it is recommended the couple have a strategically placed second car a few miles up the road, in which they would continue their journey.
