Marriage traditions in Azerbaijan are rich and diverse, reflecting the country’s cultural and historical heritage. Some of the traditional customs and practices associated with Azerbaijani weddings include the engagement ceremony, the bride’s preparation ceremony, the wedding ceremony itself, and the post-wedding celebrations.
During the engagement ceremony, the groom’s family presents gifts to the bride’s family as a sign of their commitment to the marriage. This is followed by the bride’s preparation ceremony, where the bride is adorned in traditional wedding attire and receives gifts from her family and close friends.
The wedding ceremony itself is typically held in a grand venue and involves a variety of rituals, such as the exchange of vows, the sharing of sweets and pastries, and the breaking of a plate to symbolize the couple’s unity. After the wedding, there are often several days of post-wedding celebrations.
