My witness had a ton to say on wedding customs since weddings are so ritualized. They recognize a liminal period in an individual’s life — the time between being totally single and being hitched — so there are large numbers of customs in each culture that encompass weddings. A few parts of Ethiopian weddings are like normal Enfranchised wedding customs, like the partition of the genuine function from the gathering and the “single girl party”.
However there are various clear contrasts, for example, the dress that is worn and the hour of day that the service happens.
They’re not entirely agreeable. What’s more, individuals getting hitched are additionally wearing crowns that are made from a similar texture. Um… And… In anticipation of the wedding, the lady of the hour is as… It’s finished at like a finish up with part’s home, it isn’t possible at your own home. However, similar to, the lady of
the hour is similar to, ready and dressed, and there’s singing and moving and talking. Also, it’s generally ladies. Like, men can there, yet they’re generally not. They’re normally with the lucky man. It resembles the Ethiopian variant of single girl party, kind of, yet it’s like, just before the wedding.
So all the family is there, as are the lady’s nearby female companions. So I mean, I suppose they’re less exuberant when it’s
a standard wedding, since, in such a case that the wedding is conventional, being truly promptly in the morning is possible. So it very well may be at as am 6. I’ve been to a not many that are at like, ten or eleven, yet that is not typical. Also, the ones that are still in houses of worship yet are not customary are normally at ten or eleven. The gathering isn’t until some other time, in the middle between, there’s generally similar to, a major break where
individuals simply return home or do anything they desire. Or if nothing else in Washington, D.C., everybody generally goes to similar park and takes pictures for a really long time. Furthermore, there’s food there — Ethiopian food — like injera and sorts of sauces that are basically the same as curry. So everybody eats and mingles.”
