In the Pig Dance, several male wedding guests (who are close friends or relatives of the people marrying) enter the reception room carrying a roasted pig. The pig is carried into the room on a silver platter. The men who are not carrying the pig are instead holding bottles of wine, forks, and knives. They go from table to table demanding “payment.” The wedding guests place cash (often large bills) on the silver platter, which goes towards funding the costs of the wedding.
