Polterabend | Ilona + Wayne | Omaruru Namibia

Posted by on December 9, 2012 in Couples, Parties, Personal, Recent | 0 comments

On a very special and personal trip up to Namibia with my son, I got to attend the Polterabend and Wedding of my beautiful cousin Ilona. The wedding blog post is here.

According to Wikipedia: Polterabend is the term for a German wedding custom in which on the night before the wedding the guests break porcelain to bring luck to the couple’s marriage. The belief in the effectiveness is expressed by the old adage: “Shards bring luck” (German: Scherben bringen Glück).
