Re: Wedding customs

In some Jewish communities a special dance is performed towards the end of the reception, in honor of parents who have brought their last son or daughter to the wedding canopy. The parents are seated on chairs in the center of the dance floor. The guests dance around them, sometimes lavishing them with flowers and kisses or crowning them with a wreath of flowers. Frequently the dance is performed to a Yiddish song called, "The Youngest Daughter is Given."
