Wedding traditions in Georgia

  1. 1. Family creation in Georgia has three stages:machankloba — marriage proposal, nishnoba — betrothal and kortsili - wedding.
  2. 2. The groom during the brides entering their future house should climb on the roof and free a white bird.
  3. 3. Then the newlyweds are offered a wedding glass of wine. The first to drink is the groom who then puts the wedding ring in wine and passes the glass to the bride who also drinks from a glass. Then the groom gets the ring out and officially hands it over to his chosen one.
  4. 4. Then follows the solemn "survey" of the grooms house by the bride. The groom and the bride break a beautiful plate for luck before entering the house.
  5. 5. In order to make new home prosperous they throw grains of cereals to the house corners and give the newlyweds wooden ornaments – ―chiragdani‖ which mean ―the life tree‖.
  6. 6. They don’t scream ―gorko‖.
  7. 7. The most romantic and beautiful wedding ritual (generally accepted in Caucasus ) is the abduction of the bride. Often it happens to avoid the expenses connected with the organization of magnificent and rich Georgian wedding. There is always a chance to organize the proper wedding in the future.
