I’m getting married next year, and I want to include some special French-Canadian stuff, since that’s the culture I’m leaving behind when I make Maryland my official home turf. The problem is, although it’s my background, I’ve never been to any French-Canadian weddings. All my friends from school who got married were from various other backgrounds, and included their own traditions instead.
I’m asking my family, of course, but I figured maybe the few Canadian dopers would be able to toss some ideas at me. The only one my mother has come up with so far is the dollar dance, but I feel like it’s a little tacky and I’m not sure how the American side of the wedding will take it.
Does anyone have ideas?
What neat stuff did you include in your wedding, whatever your background?
