World Weddings: Send Us Your Best Posts!

6 years ago

Wedding season is in full swing! What does that mean to you? Something borrowed, something blue? Jumping the broom? A white dress… or a red sari?

But traditions familiar to in one heritage may sometimes be baffling to others. Why do older guests leave right after dinner is served at a Korean wedding reception? What is the proper way to dance at an Indian wedding?

Here in the Race and Ethnicity section at BlogHer, we want to celebrate the diversity of wedding traditions and the ways you are keeping old traditions alive, and also making new combinations that reflect our changing culture. Perhaps you have experienced certain wedding traditions. Or maybe you blogged about what it means to not be married in your culture. So share with us your stories – funny, poignant or otherwise memorable – from when you tied the knot or when you were guest at someone else’s ceremony. Your great storytelling could get featured on BlogHer’s World Weddings series!

You can send links to your blog posts to: grace(dot)hwanglynch(at)blogher (dot)com. We’ll be spotlighting the best ones here at BlogHer!
