Kurdish Wedding Traditions Culture


Kurdish Culture
Kurdish culture has distinctive traits that are very dissimilar to Toronto traits. Kurdish traditions are similar to those of the Iranians. Some of these similarities include the celebration of different occasions like weddings. Additionally, both cultures celebrate Newroz, which is their New Year celebration. Newroz is celebrated on twenty first of March. Kurds are considered as moderate Muslims thus the less observation of Islamic rules. For example, Kurdish culture allows women to work outside their homes. Unlike other Muslims, Kurdish cultures have less restriction about women wearing the hijab. The Kurdish people also have unique wedding cultures admired by many people around the world.

Kurdish Marriage Procedure
Unlike Toronto weddings, three or four men and women with an advanced age visits the brides home before the ceremony as dictated by the Kurdish wedding traditional culture. In the first day of visit, the visitors tell the bride’s parents the reasons for their visit. The purpose of this visit is to inform the girl’s parents about their interest in her to get married to one of their own. After explaining their motive, the girl’s parent may agree or refuse to hand their daughter for marriage.

When the girl’s parents show some interest, the guests ask for some water. The girl’s parents then ask her to serve the guests with water. The objective of this act is to give guests a chance to view the girl’s stature, character as well as appearance. According to Kurdish wedding traditional culture, the girl is supposed to stand there until the guest finish drinking water. If the guests are impressed with the girl, they organize a second visit. In the second visit, the guest comes along with the man intending to marry the girl. The elderly guests introduce the man to the girl and her parents. This gives the young girl and man a chance to interact and know each other. According to Kurdish wedding traditional culture, the ceremony kicks off only when the man is pleased with the girl and agrees to marry her. When this happens, the elderly guests request the girl’s parents to hand their daughter for marriage. When both girl and young man are happy and satisfied, the wedding ceremony is prepared. Unlike Toronto weddings, this wedding is prepared within the same day.

Actual Wedding Ceremony
Just like Toronto weddings, Kurdish people celebrate during unification of a man and a woman. During this ceremony, there is performance of music performed by traditional musicians. According to Kurdish culture, there are three categories of music performance. This includes storytellers, minstrels as well as bards. Majority of songs performed are meant to cement love between the lovers. Some songs have an epic characteristic because they praise the wedding couples as heroes and winners. According to Kurdish culture, music performance stars one day prior to the wedding occasion.

On the actual day just like in Toronto, the groom puts a ring on the bride’s finger while present audience celebrates the occasion in song and dance. As song and dance is taking place, the young man’s relatives offer presents and gifts to girl’s parents. This serves as a sign of appreciation. According to Kurdish wedding traditional culture, the ceremony ends after presentation of shara buke, which is a shawl, placed on the bride’s head. The shawl must have white, yellow as well as red colors on it. Two rings are put on the bride’s finger. Following Kurdish wedding traditional culture, the main ring symbolizes engagement while the second ring symbolizes the right of the husband to visit the home of the bride any time he wishes.
