Persian Wedding Ceremony (Aroosi)
The Persian wedding ceremony take place around the Sofreh Aghd, a beautiful spread decorated with symbolic items. The Persian ceremony dates back to ancient Zoroastrian times. The bride and groom are seated in low chairs, signifying their humility and closeness to earth. Above the couple’s heads, two happily married female relatives hold a white cloth. Two sugar cones (Kaleh ghand) are ground onto the cloth, representing sweetness and joy poured into their lives. Another relative sews both ends of the white cloth, to symbolize the permanent bond between the bride and groom.
