some friend asked me about iranian wedding ceremony,i wanna attract ur attention to some pics of our wedding cloth;)it means a nice cloth(sometime colorfull)we put on earth,decorated by some holly things in our culture: our holly book,mirror with candlestick(the groom give as a gift ti his bride),pair of red fish,spices,some nuts(hazelnuts,almon-ds,walnuts),season fruits,tradition candies,colorfull eggs,wheat,rice,brea-d,pomegranate(it's our paradise fruit),colorfull salt,we put many candle on it(befor getting marry partner light them and after that they blow out candles with roses),pair of big suger bar(women in wedding ceremony stand behind the partner,hold a thin cloth above the bride & groom's head,then hit the suger bar on their head and pray happiness for them some chees with grass sandwich,some candy packages that bride make befor as a gift to guests to remember their marriage:)

Favourite spots:

when holly man ask bride to say yes,bride flirting and doesn't answeryesafter 3times,she wanna flirt for her groom;)and each time she doesn't say the guest saysshe go to take some flowers for us...after yes:) both put their little finger to glass of honey and put it to another's mouth, brings happiness of their life THEN GROOM KISS HIS BRIDE...

What's really great:

I really love your report, how interesting that the bride makes gifts for the guests - in my country the bride only receives the gifts :)) Thank you so much! I am planning to come Esfahan in May this year, and actually to other places in Iran - I can't wait!!

I enjoyed reading what you thought of Iran.

Iran isn't like I thought it would be. At the wedding party the people are dressed like they would be in Canada.

Nice report!
I'd love to hear more from your country, as i'd like to travel there one day. My only concern right now is your political situation, and if it is safe to travel in Iran nowadays...

Hi leili. it was nice to read about marriages in Iran. I found it much similar to the marriages of Muslim friends in my country..
Please keep contributing and giving us more information about Iran..

Very interesting cultural information. Reports like this make international understanding and respect to peoples differances easier. Well done, ignoring some typing mistakes.

This is just the sort of report I like to see - somebody remembering that what is home and normal to you is new and exciting to others. Thank you.
