Czech Wedding Traditions and Customs. The rosemary is interesting and if I trusted my friends enough to allow them to kidnap me during the wedding then maybe I would do that. I would do sharing the soup but I'm a bit of a slob so that's a no-go.
At the beginning of the Czech wedding reception, a plate is broken at the feet of the bride and groom and they must sweep the chips together.
