Wedding catering

Wedding receptions are a separate art in Armenian reality. Both sides bride and groom are solemnly preparing for the hospitality of relatives and the godfather. The catering table is usually decorated with candles and flowers and give a festive look to the event. Armenian brandy is definitely planned on the table. There are traditional Armenian families who store cognac on this special occasion after the birth of a child, and on the wedding day they solemnly open it as a sign of strong and valuable new family ties. A beautiful buffet reception is accompanied by a wonderful Armenian tradition, where the godmother and female guests from both sides solemnly dress the wedding veil up on the bride. According to this custom, the groom cannot see the bride until a veil is put on the girl’s head. While women in the room of the bride sing and put on a veil, men raise a glass at the buffet table and drink a toast for the newlyweds. According to Armenian tradition, guests come to the bride’s house before the wedding ceremony to solemnly pick up the bride from her father’s house. And after the ceremony, all the guests and newlyweds go to the groom’s house as official spouses. The bride enters the groom’s house as the daughter-in-law of this family. Cognac opens here and all the guests raise a glass as a sign of a newly established family relationship.
