Wedding Soup

Why is it called wedding soup?
 Well, I googled it and found two answers...One, because it is always served at weddings. That could be true in southwestern Pennsylvania because I've had it at several weddings. It's a real favorite around here.  Two, because it refers to the meat and the greens in the soup making a good pairing for each other. This answer seems more likely. This recipe is easy and made in the slow cooker or crock pot. Pre-made meatballs are a great help.
