Polterabend is a German wedding custom in which the guests break porcelain to bring luck to the couple's marriage. The belief in the effectiveness of this custom is expressed by the old adage: "Shards bring luck" (German: Scherben bringen Glück). The shards may only be swept up by the bride and groom  because it is supposed to be the first chore they have to do together. Usually the guests bring old porcelain items that they don´t need anymore, anything from coffee cups to plates (but please no mirrors or glass).


For our English guests there will enough porcelain, that they can break for our luck.
