German Wedding Traditions: Sawing The Log
The tradition of sawing a log during a wedding is a German custom known as "Baumstamm sägen."
After the wedding ceremony, the newlyweds are given a log and a two-handled saw. Together, they must saw the log in half, symbolizing their first task as a married couple and their ability to work together to overcome challenges.
The act of sawing the log is symbolic of the obstacles that the couple may face in their marriage. By working together and communicating effectively, they can overcome any challenges that come their way.
