Default Wedding traditions

What are some wedding traditions in your area / family?

One is the clinking of the silverware to prompt a kiss between the bride and groom at the wedding dinner. This is so corny and traditional and traditionally corny it has almost become equivalent in my mind to "stupid tradition".

In my family, one tradition is that all the male relatives (brothers, uncles, cousins, brothers-in-law, grandfathers, etc.) dance with the bride.

I remember one that if the younger sister got married before the older sister, the older sister had to dance a j*g in a pig trough at the reception (those usually held at a fire company - the people who carried on this tradition wouldn't have had their reception at the Ritz). It was a strictly rural thing.
