Log Cutting Ceremony

Unique Wedding Tradition

An old German wedding custom, the tradition of cutting a log represents the first obstacle that the couple must overcome in their marriage. They must work together to “overcome the obstacle” by sawing through the log. Using a large, long saw with two handles, the couple demonstrates their teamwork to friends and family, and their willingness and ability to master the difficulties that inevitably arise in a marriage. Hopefully the log will not take too long to saw through!  

SB&G tip: Try to find an old, dry log that is not too big, so you will still have time to enjoy the reception!
