Hello, I was born in the US but my whole family is from Belgrade, and I am getting married in Sept, and we are wondering of Serbian Wedding reception ideas? I heard something about almonds at the tables? Is this true? Can anyone please help with more traditional wedding reception ideas?

Thanks!

Dear Andrija,
What terrible comments from the other two posters! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Are you being married in the Church? That could make a difference re: traditional wedding ideas.
If being married in the Church, you should speak with the priest as soon as possible. You and your fiance will need to meet with the priest at least a couple of times. You and your fiance will need to choose Kumovi for the wedding, and maybe a Stari Svat. You may want to have trobojka sashes for the Kumovi. For some other ideas see: http://www.orthodoxgifts.com/index.php...

Another tradition is for the bride to make a gift for the Kumovi (something sewn, crocheted, etc). I didn't have time, so I gave icons of the feast day (Sv. Gabriel), with other gifts.
Good luck!

come to chicago, i must have been to like 10 different serb and bosniak weddings weddings. seriously get in contact with serb women in chicago who have had weddings.
here i'll throw a few things:
1. u got to be able to dance good, kola is mandatory.
2. get a serb singing band or at the very least few professional dancers.
3. dobra torta
4. resturant should take care of food,drinks, open bar,etc
5. party should start at 7pm -12 am
6. make sure u tell people to bring u cah in envlopes, tell them party costs 30,000 dollars, even if it costs only 15,000
with these tips u can not get wrong.
but again contact serb women in chicago, cuz they know where to get the dress, and all that chick crap that i am not good with.
an albanian from chicago wishes u all the best in your life with your husband. give birth to 9 jugovicis. hahahaha
