Syrian celebrations are known in the Arab world for the delicious foods, lavish decors, and beautiful musical tunes.
If you’re a couple who wants to have a Syrian or, as many call it, a “Shami” inspired wedding theme, then we have some beautiful ideas and tips for you.
The Hamam is a well-known tradition in Syrian weddings, on the day before the wedding the bride and groom are taken by their male and female family members, each separately, to the hamam where they bathe, sing, and eat until sunset.
One of the most important features of a Syrian wedding is the Arada performance, a traditional musical group that sings, dances, and conducts sword fights during the wedding! Check this video out:
