DIAMOND COOKIES/ New Traditions



It seems the day of church weddings have given way to garden nuptials in tranquil, countryside settings. The exchange of vows under a birch tree with grass beneath ones feet and guitar trio to serenade is today's romantic setting. Every generation creates their own traditions to make their special day a unique and memorable event. Attendants and groomsmen dance and entertain as they make their entrance into the reception. Head tables have been replaced with heart-shaped, sweetheart tables. Champagne toasts by the best man often extends to the maid of honor and other attendants as they delight guests with humorous stories from the couple's past, careful not to divulge too much. Three-tier wedding cake has given way to cupcakes and other sweet treats. Although, the traditions of libations, music, dancing and merriment still abound. Most importantly, gathering with loved ones to share the big day is priority one.

These Diamond Cookies were decorated to mimic the trio of colors at a recent wedding.
