Wedding Folklore S19


  • We chose the topic of Wedding Folklore. We tried to incorporate folklore from a variety of places and cultures, not merely that of mainstream America. We had a variety of informants, ranging from various generations, ethnicities, and geospatial areas, which provided us a rich lore collection.
