Palestinian Weddings

People around the world celebrate weddings with feasting and religious or folkloric rituals to mark new beginnings and, especially in ancient agricultural times, the hope for new generations. But for Palestinians, weddings are more than a time to look forward; they are a time to connect Palestinian history and age-old traditions with a Palestinian future, and to create a Palestinian national identity by honoring a common cultural heritage. Muslim and Christian wedding ceremonies are different but the celebrations bring both communities together in a common bond of solidarity in the face of the Occupation and often serve as a time for reconciling past tensions or differences.

The slaughtering of the sheep is done by the groom’s father and family members and friends complete the task by cutting or chopping the meat into the various cuts for different uses. Women in the bride’s family mix the crushed and powdered henna leaves with liquid to make the paint that will be used on “Mehndi Night” when older women will decorate the bride and her female guests with traditional designs. For some a design will be painted on the bride’s legs to represent the soil that the dove brought back to the prophet Noah on the ark as evidence that the flood and destruction was over and the earth was ready for a new beginning.

The over-arching element in all the wedding ceremonies is song. There are songs while preparing food, old Arabic songs of sadness and happiness for the bride who is leaving her family, songs for the bride going to a new home, songs to accompany the groom’s family when they bring sweets to the bride’s family on Mehndi Night.

On the day of the wedding, the groom is shaved in a public ceremony to show the bride that he is clean and shining after having spent the previous month not shaving and wearing dirty clothes. The procession then begins with the groom, very clean and well-dressed, mounted on a horse or donkey, surrounded by his family who sing for him. As the group proceeds along the streets to where the bride is waiting, villagers come out from their homes, bringing food for the coming celebration and adding their voices to the songs.

Today most Palestinian wedding ceremonies mix in modern Western elements along with traditional authentic customs. Yet no matter which Palestinian wedding you attend, two traditions will always remain prominent across the line. These two traditions are the importance of family and the strong emphasis of hospitality. Features of these qualities can be sensed prominently throughout any Palestinian wedding ceremony one might attend. While change of traditions over time has proven inevitable, today there are many young Palestinians whom have been seeking to restore all of the traditional rituals within their own weddings in order to preserve the authenticity that makes a Palestinian wedding, truly authentic.
