Wedding Cup

Makeshift Quaich
I couldn't find a genuine quaich in time for my nephew's wedding. But this cup will do as a nod to our Scottish heritage. Sure, maybe it's a gravy boat (?) but it will hold scotch whiskey and really we aren't that fancy so wouldn't any cup with two handles do?

My interpretation of the quaich is that it symbolizes what marriage is all about: peace, unity, and friendship. And it should be shared and given and enjoyed and offered in big ways (like a wedding) and especially in those littlest everyday ways.

Happy days to Mason & Melissa. Let's drink to your Dad and to all our Scottish family, old and new and not so Scottish too.

Congrats to the Happy Couple! A gravy boat o' booze makes a fine beginning to a marriage.

I'll drink booze from a shoe.
Many congratulations to the happy couple!

The great thing about symbols is that even makeshift ones can carry great meaning. Congrats to the happy pair!

Whatever it takes! Cheers!!

I love symbolism and this is perfect - a cup to pour into, and to take long draws from, meant to be enjoyed.

I also love learning something new. Very cool thing, a quaich!

Ah dbs, it appears we have both been wrapped up in the joy of weddings at the moment. This is a lovely post and you're right, what it is is nothing to what it means.
