"Bury the Bourbon"
     This is a fun tradition done to insure that there is no rain on the blushing bride's special day. In the south, many weddings are held outside. So, exactly one month before the wedding, the bride buries a bottle of bourbon in the yard neck down. Then during the reception, they dig it up and drink it!

"Groom's Cakes"
     A Groom's Cake is a special creation by the bride. The Groom's Cake will express the groom's likes, hobbies or self in some way. Many of these cakes are very extensive and creative.
