The customs of Syrian weddings

Syria, a country in the middle east, is renowned for its wealthy way of life and stunning customs that have persisted in modern times. One of those customs is the syrian wedding, a beautiful event with countless wholly original rituals that carries the weight of numerous dreams woven by the bride and groom for their special day.

While most Syrian couples today follow a more Western-inspired wedding ceremony, some still hold on to their grandparents’ customs. An arada band director from the Old City of Damascus, a grandmother from the Jaramana neighborhood eastern honeys app in the mixed town of Salamiyah and a teacher from the Idlib district tell Syria Today that their families still practice some of these traditional marriage ceremonies.

Syrian males may show interest in a person to her household before asking for her hand in marriage, just like in other faiths. If accepted, the gentleman and his home are required to give her relatives the bride, a sizeable sum of money.

The bride and her family may wait at her house for a consultant from her husband’s household to arrive when the day comes to get married. The members will next accompany the bride and her home to their new residence, where food, drinks, and muffins will be served to them. The yalam, a traditional Assyrian Chaldean Syrian performance type, may then start to be danced by the guests.

Normally, a woman leads the yalam while two other women alternately dance. The honeymooners did be escorted up to their vehicles at the end of the evening and sent off with a song, applause, and honking send-off.
