The prospective groom first visits the bride’s parents and requests them to give their daughter’s hand in marriage to him. Then a date for the wedding is fixed and the two families give gifts and furniture to the other party, as a token of acceptance of the relationship.
Weddings in Turkey are differently conducted both in the rural and urban areas. In the country, there are two wedding ceremonies – one in the bride’s house and one the other one at the groom’s home. The wedding is attended by relatives and close friends. There is a wedding march at the beginning of the ceremony, with Maids of Honor accompanying the couple.
The bride and groom then sit at a table, while an authorized government officer finishes the required paperwork for the wedding certificate. Once they are married, the officer and the witnesses sign the certificate, whereby the couple legally becomes man and wife.
Then there is the usual reception, cake-cutting by the couple, dinner and dance party in the evening, after which the groom takes the bride to his house. A festive meal takes place in the house, after which all the relatives disperse, leaving the newly wed couple to themselves. Some couples also leave for a hotel that night or directly to their honeymoon.
