Arab Wedding

Arabic Weddings (Arabic: فرح, زفاف, or عرس) have changed greatly in the past 100 years. Traditional Arabic weddings were very similar to modern-day Bedouin weddings and rural weddings, and they were unique from one region to another, even within the same country.

The marriage process usually starts with meetings between the couple's families, and ends with the wedding's consummation (leilat al-dokhla). For a wedding to be considered Islamic, the bride and groom must both consent, and the groom is welcomed into the bride's house—although only in the presence of her parents to maintain purity between both sides.

Famous quotes containing the words wedding and/or arab:

    And thus Snow White became the prince’s bride.
    The wicked queen was invited to the wedding feast
    and when she arrived there were
    red-hot iron shoes,
    in the manner of red-hot roller skates,
    clamped upon her feet.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    As the Arab proverb says, “The dog barks and the caravan passes”. After having dropped this quotation, Mr. Norpois stopped to judge the effect it had on us. It was great; the proverb was known to us: it had been replaced that year among men of high worth by this other: “Whoever sows the wind reaps the storm”, which had needed some rest since it was not as indefatigable and hardy as, “Working for the King of Prussia”.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
