Despite the lack of Scottish ceilidh music at Polish weddings they still have more than enough excitement to make the entire night go with a bang! Both nations have strong traditions of great wedding parties so here is a short comparison so you know just what to look forward to if you are lucky enough to attend either.
While Scottish wedding receptions usually serve a regular three course meal, some snacks later in the night and a host of drinks from the bar, Polish weddings take this to another level. After a three course meal upon arrival, the vodka starts flowing. Regular shots are taken by the entire reception while singing traditional songs celebrating the marriage. Food is continuously served from then on in the form of mountains of platters of meat and salad and snacks which just never seem to disappear from your table. Drinks are usually plentiful, though the vodka can be enough and as the night draws on the deserts begin to replace the platters. One thing is for sure, you will never go hungry at a Polish wedding.
As wedding reception entertainment goes, Scottish ceilidh music is pretty unbeatable. But if you enjoy party games, then maybe some Polish traditions are for you. There are the dance contests for budding dance champion couples with prizes for the winners as judged by the bride and groom. Opposite families (all ages involved) are pitted against each other in a battle royal of dance offs sometimes involving men doing ballet and women doing the cancan.
