"Tuesdays Wedding" - Amish women with white aprons walk alongside buggies in fall autumn wedding procession. Amish weddings are typically held on Tuesday's and Thursday's so as not to allow family to prepare without interfering with church services or chores (previous pinner).

Funerals are generally held in the home of the deceased. The funeral service is simple, with no eulogy or flowers. Caskets are plain wooden boxes, made within the local community. Most Amish communities will allow the embalming of the body by a local undertaker familiar with Amish customs, but no makeup is applied. An Amish funeral and burial is typically held three days after death. The deceased is usually buried in the local Amish cemetery.

Nebraska Amish are unique in their use of white-top carriages.
