Water or vodka
Weddings are associated with many different toasts made by parents, best men, the maid of honour, friends, the newlyweds themselves and so on. Some of the toasts don’t just have the one goal to wish happiness to the newlyweds, but they can also predict the future of the relationship – namely, which spouse will go to the pub!
A friend or member of catering staff will put two glasses on a tray, one with water and the other with a transparent alcohol – usually vodka. The newlyweds will take a glass each in preparation for the toast. If the groom chooses water, he’ll stay at home in the evenings, if he chooses alcohol, he’ll likely go down to the pub!
