Burying the Bourbon

August 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Several years ago I started following the magazine Southern Weddings! I absolutely love everything about them! I remember stumbling across an article that was about different Southern traditions. One in particular was about burying a bottle of bourbon. That immediately caught my attention so I read on. The article spoke about how the whole tradition works and it was more complicated than I thought. As the folklore says, that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the bride and groom are to be married, then it won't rain on the wedding day. Looking back I remember thinking this was a bit strange but worth it to someone if they ever had an outdoor wedding. Now only 30 days away from our outdoor wedding, Logan and I aren't taking any chances! According to the tradition, the bottle has to be buried exactly one month before the wedding, the bottle must be completely full and unopened, and it must be burred upside down in order for a sunny beautiful day. Then, at the end of the evening the bride and groom with dig up the bourbon and toast with the bridal party. So last night, Logan and I, along with my parents and grandparents went a buried the bourbon! We are praying for no rain and hoping this bourbon brings us some sunshine! Here are just a few pictures from our bourbon burying experience!
