Bhaskar...
Well, i don't know if marriage is a good thing anymore, but every girl thinks she's going to have a fairytale life and you can't argue with that becasue they will simply NOT listen.

A good narration of the traditional cum western marriage. However your last line "a beaming bride cannot and should not be wished but all the best", left me somewhat intrigued.

see my blogs in June 2006 titled the Wedding of Shamla (three parts). From what I know that Afghan colleagues told, there is still a huge financial burden on families. Even in India, where there are many Muslims, I hear that a great deal of money is spent on weddings, almost pauperising families.  Wedding ceremonies are bound to change, as times have changed. Despite the ft that many parents say they want to spend money on their childrens' weddings, I think there could be some down sizing of them.

Syrian weddings nowadays resemble western wedding more than the traditional occasions that some other coutries hold. It is sad i guess but the economic realities have forced many people to adopt a more practical approach  renting the wedding gown, smaller weddings and a DJ instead of live entertainment. I would like to know what are the similarities with the AFghan wedding you attended since they feel like worlds apart despite sharing some Islamic traditions.

Taps

It is also a very loud occasion, some guests stufed tissue paper in their ears because the music was too loud!

Thanks for stopping by and i am glad that i could post something cheerful for a change

What an interesting and colorful occasion, though it sounds just a bit stressful.  I'm going back to read it again.  I love reading about different cultures and their traditions.  Thank you for sharing this.  I'm glad that your son is improving.
