Small Weddings “Traditions Part 3”

Throwing Rice

Showering the couple with rice is an ancient tradition.  As rice is considered a life giving seed, it is thought that by throwing it on the couple they will be bestowed with fertility and have many children.  Many churches now forbid it on their property, but there are some safe alternatives to throwing rice such as bubbles and bird seed.  There are plenty of birds here in Foxburg, so the bride and groom can be showered with many of the life giving blessings for this ancient tradition.  Call or email us for more information on setting up your special day here in Foxburg.
