2013 46¢ Wedding Bouquet
Weddings Series

Marriage is considered sacred around the globe, but wedding traditions vary greatly across different cultures.  Mexican couples are lassoed by a white ribbon or rosary during their wedding ceremony to symbolize their union.  Among the Mohawk Nation’s Akwesasne people, elder siblings do a special dance in a pig trough if a younger sibling marries first.
 
In China, the bride and groom serve tea to both sets of parents before the wedding, which is usually held on the half-hour so their life together begins on an upswing.  After the wedding, the bride serves tea to her new in-laws.  Eggs, sweets, and money – representing fertility, a happy life together, and financial success – are common wedding themes in India.  Ducks and geese are symbols in Korea because both species mate for life and represent fidelity.  Russian brides and grooms race each other to a special carpet they stand on while reciting their vows.  According to tradition, whoever reaches it first will be the head of the household.
 
Many American brides incorporate personal touches into their wedding ceremony to make their day special and unique.  But saying “Yes, I do” is the highlight of almost every joyous union.

As with the “Where Dreams Blossom” Wedding Bouquet stamp, the “Yes I Do” Heart of Roses stamp was designed by Ethel Kessler using an illustration by Michael Osborne.  This stylized heart stamp, with “Yes I Do” nestled within the colorful flowers, paid the rate for wedding invitations (which are often heavier than regular envelopes as they include reply cards and more) and other oversize cards.
