Core Asian Bridal Traditions

A festive celebration of love and dedication is a tradition in Central Asia. Despite the 60 to 70 years of Soviet/russian principle, some beliefs have survived and even been revived by nomadic individuals who want to honor their ancestors. The service consists of some stages, including matchmaking, gathering of the in- laws and acquaintance of bride and groom, a lively feast in the bride’s home and seeing off the bride.

The primary step is the thus- called “bride’s farewell party”. The wedding and her relatives hang a great celebration where tunes are sung and people drinks koumiss. Subsequently the wife is masked with a veil and escorted to her novel husband’s camp in a procession. The ayatollah supervises the overall event.

The groom presents his wife’s female relatives with gifts on the day of the wedding ( nikokh ), and the two families prepare for a lavish feast. The wedding also contributes a sizable marriage known as the jasau in some regions of the nation. It may comprise of horses, animals, cash, embelleshment and garments.

For a ceremony known as” Kelin Salom” or” Salom Beru,” the bride wears a traditional dress and veil to the wedding reception. She next bows obediently to her elder cousins and in-laws. She bids her farewells to her happy early years of life with this festival.

His father-in-law uzbek brides had previously prepared a bed and put on twelve bowls of rice as an omen of fertility and longevity for the couple after the official wedding ceremony ( nikokh ) took place in the groom’s house. The children of the newly married couple subsequently scramble for these grains, almonds, pomegranates, and apples.
