Did you know that in many Eastern European wedding ceremonies, it is customary for the bride and groom to be presented with a loaf of bread and salt? The tradition stems from the commonplace offering of bread and salt to guests upon entering a home as a sign of welcome. For couples who plan to wed on Cape Cod, Pain D’Avignon bakery & bistro in Hyannis bakes authentic European-style loaves perfect for the ‘bread & salt’ presentation, and also have a ‘bread of the month’ program that would make a great wedding gift.
Pain D’Avignon founders Vojin and Diana Vujosevic, who originally hail from Serbia, recommend a classic “Pain de Campagne” style bread for the wedding ceremony, and offer ‘bread of the month‘ programs for three, six and twelve month spans. Imagine giving the gift of fresh, seasonal bread delivered right to the happy couples’ doorstep!
