One of the most important parts of a wedding, particularly an Arab wedding, is the bride and groom's entrance into the wedding venue. Couples choose a song that represents their happiness and love when entering their wedding venue where all wedding guests are gathered and seated. Brides consider the wedding song they enter or the zaffa group they select as a very important part of the wedding.
Zaffe bands are always a great way to add some joy and entertainment to your wedding, and when it comes to zaffas, you will find that there are so many options. Most couples choose a zaffa that represents their cultural backgrounds and ethnicity. If you are a Lebanese bride and groom, there is nothing nicer than entering your wedding venue to the music of happy Lebanese zaffa tunes and songs.
A Lebanese zaffe is a traditional element to any Lebanese wedding whether it is held in Lebanon or abroad. It is a performance made up of several members of a zaffe group, dancers and drummers in traditional costumes, who escort the bride and groom into the main wedding reception leading them to the dance floor. Traditional folkloric Lebanese songs form the core of the zaffe music accompanied sometimes with live singing. As soon as the zaffe is over (15 minutes or so) the first dance of the bride and groom begins.
Lebanese zaffe may also needed at the bride's house prior to the wedding ceremony or reception. As the bride leaves her parents house in her wedding dress accompanied by her bridesmaids, family, and close friends, the zaffe group escorts her with traditional music and drums from the entrance of the house to the wedding car.
So have one amazing and fun wedding entrance by hiring a Lebanese Zaffe that normally comes with wedding drums, male and female dancers, props and more.
