After communion, proper certification of membership is requested, and is given by the second Sunday after communion.This is a major day in the life of the church because all the couples who plan to marry are “published.” At the end of the service, the deacon announces the names of the girls and who they plan to marry.Instead of a veil, the bride wears a black prayer covering to differentiate from the white cap she wears daily. Normally, Amish men do not wear ties, but for the wedding they will don bow ties.The groom also wears high-topped black shoes, and a black hat with a three and a half inch brim.Wedding dates for the Amish are limited to November and part of December, when the harvest has been completed and severe winter weather has not yet arrived. Saturdays are not used as wedding days because it would be sacrilegious to work or clean-up on the following day, Sunday.A typical Amish wedding day begins at 4 o’clock in the morning.
