Living a major portion of my life as a refugee I have been watching different cultures, I found out that Afghan culture is quite different and enriched. It has familiarity with Eastern and Western cultures but retains its own special identity which unfortunately is not known much. I decided to write about the wedding traditions which is a symbolic celebration of every culture. The painting of a scene from a 1728 performance of The Beggar’s Opera shows Polly Peachum (as portrayed by Lavinia Fenton), whose status as Macheath’s new wife is central to her role, dressed in a white gown.

The party begins with the German version of the cocktail hour, during which cakes, coffee, and tortes are served. During this time, the newlyweds will have their pictures taken by the photographer. Next comes the first dance (the hochzeitstanz, or wedding dance) for the newlyweds, which is traditionally a waltz. Then the bride will dance with her father and the groom will dance with his mother. After some more dancing, the party will have their formal dinner. One traditional dish is the hochzeitssuppe, or wedding soup, which is made of beef, dumplings, and vegetables. Of course, the beer and wine flow freely all night long!

Wedding cakes in the early 1900s began to be made of white cake, and white frosting. As a rule they were a one large layer cake, that would be decorated with real flowers. This was a big change from the typical wedding cakes of the 1800s, which were made of currant and nuts. Somewhat like our Christmas fruit cake of today, with a sugar glaze added. Our class was upper intermediate level, and there were about fifteen of us.

Whether you got married 3 weeks ago or 30 years ago, you may very well still have your dress sitting in a closet somewhere. This is one of those things that tends to get carried from house to house. Some of us have a lot of emotional attachment to the dress. Some of us have hopes that a family member will want to wear it someday (though I think if you got married during the age of super synthetic dresses, the odds are low). Some of us just don’t know how to get rid of it, because throwing it out feels wrong. Use these kissing balls for your outside or inside wedding reception. This delightful craft has its instructions on the Holiday Crafts site. Next, she shopped for the furniture. She already owned most of the pieces, but some required painting to achieve the look she wanted. She purchased a dresser and a few small tables. Even at this point she wasn’t sure what she was going to do with the fabric. One place where the lace industry never died out was Belgium. This was due in large part to the method which was used in the creation of fine Belgian lace: each worker was responsible for a specific portion of a larger whole. This meant that no one person was skilled in creating the entire finished piece, which made the secrets of Belgian lace much harder to spread to other regions. Today, Belgium is one of the few places in the world known for its fine lace. The first time we see young Rose, played by Kate Winslet, she wearing a nautical inspired suit that has vertical and horizontal pinstripes.

First there was the Ibo segment of the engagement, which was later followed by the Yoruba segment. The ruched dress gathers at and controls the mid-section. The subtle coverage is so very flattering, almost alluring. These dresses can be sassy and classy and usually hug the body. We all love hugs don’t we? There are all types of sexy ruched dress styles. Some give just a little slimming coverage putting emphases on the waist and hips. There are other styles that drape over the tummy area covering it up completely. The ruched dress shows off the hips in a bold way while hiding the tummy. This is my go to” party dress for when I’m in a razzle-dazzle kind of mood.

Thanks for some great tips and ideas. I like to wear comfortable but smart clothes and shoes with a small heel, never …

A wonderful old Bavarian custom is the Hochzeitslader. Rather than mail out invitations, the Hochzeitslader is sent around to personally invite each guest to the wedding. He dresses in fancy attire adorned with ribbons and flowers. As the official inviter, he goes around the village from door to door extending a personal rhyming invitation to all on the guest list. The way that guests accept the invitation is to pin one of the ribbons from the Hochzeitslader’s attire onto his hat. Then they are to invite him into their homes to share a drink or two. When the guest list is long, this ritual can take a couple of days to complete! Something else that will take place before the wedding is the junggesellenabschied, also known as the bachelor party, in which the groom and his friends hit the pubs for a last bash before he gets married.
