preventing her from just throwing it to a friend

Yes, it is exactly what Fenikx meant. :):):)

Did the men throw their ties?

Please, do not anticipate next riddles. It is highly inadvisable in this thread. :):):)

Not necessarily 2 weddings though!

Nope. 1 wedding.

Can you solve this riddle -why were there two throws?? Two answers are expected. :):):

why were there two throws??

No-one caught the bouquet first time around? Or someone caught it who was already married?

I meant to say that maybe it slipped out of someone's hands?

No-one caught the bouquet first time around?

That is the first correct reply.

What is the other one???

Or someone caught it who was already married?

Sorry, impossible. Married females can`t take part in the game. Legally forbidden. :):):)

If no-one caught it after the first throw, then someone did after the second throw. Otherwise there would've been a third throw.

If no-one caught it after the first throw,

Speaking in general.
But in case of our wedding party, we can presume by looking at the second photo in 298 that the boucqyet (sic) was caught after the first throw.

So, why was is thrown again?

It's a squid game thing? It's thrown three times and those who catch it survive and everyone else is gunned down by a giant little girl with a machine gun.

No, the reason was different. The bride threw her bouquet twice or thrice (I don`t remember now) to prolong the fun. hahahaha All those game participants were young. They were playing a practical joke on the custom, sort of. :):):)

What is taking place now?????

tie

What do you mean by tie????
Feniks
15 Nov 2023 #312
The item worn round the neck unless the blindfold ( tie) is being thrown. Or maybe I'm completely wrong....
pawian 223 | 24385

The item worn round the neck

There are two kinds of such an item that males wear round their necks........ :):):) That`s why I asked that question.

Or maybe I'm completely wrong....

NEVER!!!! :):):)

two kinds

Conventional tie and a bow tie/cravat?
pawian 223 | 24385
15 Nov 2023 #315
Yes.

PS. Actually, in Polish cravat is the name for a traditional tie. Funny.

Which one were the young males catching???

Cravat?

Sorry, no. It was a bow-tie. Check photos in post 261. :):):)

It was a bow-tie

Does the groom ever throw a garter taken from the bride's leg? That's common in the US (and other countries?0

That`s how it starts and develops::

The young man who caught the bow tie is being interviewed and then he introduces his fiancee. AFAIK, they are married today. The tradition worked in his case.

What is the next game the queue for which you can see in the last photo???

Hint - you will never guess coz it was so crazy. hahahahahaha

A long time ago I was invited to a Vietnamese wedding (in Warsaw) not so much alcohol but great food and soooo many flowers. Among the games there was one where each of the newlyweds were blindfolded and felt (innocuous) body parts of several people to see if they could recognize their new spouse (I think he felt the knee and she felt the face but I could be wrong).

Is that also done at Polish weddings?

Sorry, I have never seen it. Most Polesess and Poles aren`t so forward to touch strangers, even blindfolded. :):):) Imagine they start touching intimate parts......... Unspeakable scandal at a wedding reception. :):):)

The next game is a mystery to me - I simply don`t remember the details. They are standing on a line and after a few minutes only one couple remains as victors. Was it some kind of left/right foot stomping trial???

They are standing on a line

If they were actually standing on it I might think it's some variation of the US sobriety test ( although a bit weird for a wedding ) but they're standing next to it not on it.

This is Poland, remember. Anything can happen. hahahaha
