Did you know throwing rice at a bride and groom after their wedding ceremony is perfectly acceptable with the birds? Yes, if birds could talk, they would tell you they will not be harmed by this long standing tradition…that is, unless they fly in the direct path of the flying rice.

Pictured here is the joyous pelting of a bride & groom after their ceremony in Asiago, Italy. I couldn’t help but laugh as I took these photos…between the happy shouting and what must have been at least 100 bags of riso (Italian for rice), this 15-20 minute event was one of the highlights of this particular Italy trip…yes! the B&G had rice thrown at them for THAT long!
