While none of the ladies of A. Dominick Events are technically Southern, we enjoy a good Southern tradition every now and then (we are south of the Mason Dixon you know). One of our very favorite superstitions is the time honor tradition of burying the bourbon. Southern folklore states that if you bury a full bottle of bourbon upside down exactly one month before the wedding at the exact spot of the ceremony it will not rain on your wedding day.
Don’t believe us? The last time one of our couples buried a bottle Tropical Storm Andrea hit the day before their tented wedding on the Chesapeake Bay. While we suffered through a soggy rehearsal, the wedding day was crystal clear, not a cloud in the sky.
My favorite part of this tradition? Digging up the bottle and enjoying it with your guests of course!
