Azerbaijan Wedding Custom

Azerbaijani marriage traditions are a once in a lifetime event and full of beautiful conventions. In the past, they could last for three or even seven days. However, these ceremonies have been shortened.

Before the principal festival, the vicar’s matchmakers visit the bride’s home to ask for her assent to marriage. They typically place a band and jacket on her hand and ask for a grin to convey that she is willing. They also give her a bowl of lovely chai for trust and beg her to cover her head with a shawl. During this time, the princess’s dad gives her his blessings and rebukes her to be a fine wife and mother.

After the marriage vows are exchanged, a ceremony bash is held at a dinner house or cafe. Plenty of guests, maybe exceeding 500 people, pack the dance floor and influence to the energetic beats of standard Azerbaijani tunes. It is considered bad politeness to stay down during the welcome The food is an incredible spread of qutab ( creamy salad ), chicken, meat skewers, dolma (vegetables or fruit wrapped in vine leaves ), rice pilaf and other classic dishes. All beverages, including chai, fluids, juices, vodka and wines, are bottomless.

After the meals, the pair takes converts standing next to each other for photos and little, engaging remarks are made. Then, the bread is cut and served. The bride’s stepson or closest male relative ties a red ribbon around the bride’s neck to illustrate her beauty and ignorance, while her parents give their princess their blessings. The bride is finally brought to the groom’s residence.
