I Don't Think They Did The "Mizinka," But...

For the second time in just over a week, I was at a "last wedding" in a family which means that all the children are married.

The first set of parents don't have too much Ashkenaz (European Jewish) blood, and I think that the "Mizinka" is an Ashkenaz custom. In the second, one of the sets of parents is divorced, so I can't imagine their having sat together for such a dance. But it's always possible that it happened after we had left.
Both weddings were suitably joyous and beautiful and different. I attended most of the weddings of both the families and wish them all mazaltov, good health and many blessings and smachot, joyous occasions.

Whose weddings? Do tell.

I emailed the names to you.
I heard that the Mizinka was danced after we had already left.
