BRIDAL DANCE

A TABLE WAS PUT IN THE CENTER OF THE HALL AND THE BRIDE SAT ALONG-
SIDE IT. ONE AT A TIME FAMILY AND FRIENDS WOULD COME UP TO HER AND
SHE WOULD DANCE WITH EACH GUEST ABOUT ONE CIRCULAR TURN. THEY WERE
OFFERED A DRINK OR A CIGAR BY THE BRIDE'S FATHER AND WOULD DROP SOME
MONEY ON THE TABLE FOR THE NEWLYWEDS.

Submitter comment: IN POLISH WEDDINGS TODAY, RELATIVES AND FRIENDS ARE MANY FOR THE
BRIDE TO DANCE WITH EVERYONE. BUT THE COUPLE IS CONGRATULATED AT
THE HALL AND RECEIVE SOME GIFT.
