Re: [TexasCzechs] Re: Traditional Czech Wedding
- I agree. BBQ, beer, SPJST hall (or K of C, etc.),
grand march, 300 guests or more, informal. That's what
I think of when I think of a czech wedding.
Except I haven't encountered the all day long events
people have mentioned. Maybe these are pre-mid-1970's
(the time of my earliest memories).
Anyway, I understand that weddings now are a lot
different and its good to meet the expectations of the
non-Czechs, who may compose half of the guests, and
who see wedding receptions as more formal events.
