Not me of course! I just celebrated 5 years with my favorite Scientist. However, we are flying to München on Thursday to celebrate my friend V's wedding!
V is a good (German) friend of mine who I met while doing an exchange outside of München in the 11th grade. We have kept in touch (albeit barely) over the years but now that I am in Germany, we have seen each other twice!
I was so honored that she invited me to her wedding. However, that happiness soon changed into anxiety!
What will I wear? What to expect? What is an appropriate gift? How will I understand anything in Bayerisch (the local southern German dialect)? Do I really have to wear Tracht? (Tracht is dirndl & lederhosen)
I am very excited about experiencing more German culture. I have asked around and been told that Germans play a lot of games at their weddings. The games seemed similar to games played at wedding showers in the States.
I have also heard German couples saw wood together. I don't know anything about this and the only thing I could find was this picture on Google Picture Search.
If you have any tips for me, please leave them in the comments. I won't be back until next Tuesday but will be excited to report back what I saw!
Until then, Pfiati!
