In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought a post about how the Amish find a spouse would be a nice topic. Amish typically get married around twenty to twenty-two years of age, but how did they find romance inside their conservative culture? For generations the parents have had traditions in place to help the next generation find their mate.

I’ve received some great questions, and today I want to address a couple of them. I will discuss what an Amish bride wears on her wedding day and what language the Amish speak. I am also offering an exciting giveaway of an advanced reader copy of my newest book, A Season for Tending (the first book in my new series)!
Today I’m going to talk a bit about what the Amish wear and why they choose to dress the way they do. The topic of Amish clothing can be a complicated one. As we’ve discussed before, Plain Amish and Mennonites come from many different sects. Each group has its own patterns and however slight those differences may appear to us, I’ve witnessed time and again how those slight changes in style or fabric are very distinguishing to them. But the similarities can make it difficult to generalize on this topic, so bear in mind that what’s true of the clothing for one group may not be true of another.
