I was born in North Carolina and raised in Virginia so I am upset with myself that I had never heard of this Southern wedding tradition! Research eludes to the fact that this tradition originated in Virginia – some say Tennessee. Regardless of the location, Southern folklore says that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the bride and groom are to be married, then it won’t rain on their wedding day. According to many believers, this must be done exactly one month before the wedding, the bottle must be completely full and it must be buried upside down in order for it to keep the rain away.
