Syria, a nation in the middle east, is renowned for its wealthy way of life and surprising norms that have persisted in modern times. One of those customs is the syrian wedding, a spectacular event with countless wholly original rituals that carries the weight of several 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 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 had show interest in a lady to her household before asking for her hand in marriage, just like in other cultures. If accepted, the male and his home are required to give her relatives the bride, a sizeable sum of money.

The wife and her community does delay at her house for a consultant from her father’s relatives syrian woman to occur when the time comes to get married. The staff will subsequently accompany the bride and her family to their new residence, where foods, drinks, and pastries will be served to them. The yalam, a traditional Assyrian Chaldean Syrian performance tone, did then start to be danced by visitors.

Usually, a woman leads the yalam while two other women alternately dance. The honeymooners will become escorted back to their vehicle at the end of the evening and sent off with a song-filled send-off.
