Syria, a nation in the middle east, is renowned for its abundant way of life and astounding norms that have persisted in modern times. One of those customs is the syrian wedding, a spectacular event with numerous wholly original rituals that carries the weight of many dreams woven by the bride and groom for their special day

While most Syrian couples today follow a more Western-inspired wedding ceremony reviews, 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 gentlemen must show interest in a female to her home before asking for her hand in marriage, just like in other faiths. If accepted, the gentleman and his community are required to give her community the marriage, which is a sizable sum of money.

The wife and her relatives likely rush at her house for a representative from her father’s family to arrive when it is time to get married. The representatives will then escort the wife and her family to their new residence, where meals, drinks, and puddings will be served to them. The yalam, a traditional Assyrian Chaldean Syrian performance tone, will then be started by the friends.

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