The family that celebrated their 6 children wedding on the same day

Many young people include traditional customs in their wedding ceremonies, despite the fact that many couples opt for modern weddings. Some of Ethiopia’s most well-known wedding traditions are included here. Telosh is held two days before the wedding. The bride receives a bridal gown or jewelry as a present from the groom and his family. Before settling down to eat, the remaining guests present the bride with their gifts. The entire bride’s family gathers outside the house to perform a traditional song announcing that no one will be allowed in when the bride’s father arrives to fetch her up. After the bride’s family has given their approval, the groom must beg permission to enter and offer flowers to his bride. Friends and relatives follow them to the bridal car after she kisses the flowers. Knee kissing is one of the strangest Ethiopian wedding traditions. At the wedding hall, the bride and groom’s grandparents, as well as senior members of the extended family, await the arrival of their grandchildren. When the couple enters the chamber, they approach the elders of the family and kiss their knees to express their gratitude and affection. The newlyweds receive their grandparents’ blessings in exchange. If the couple’s parents reside close by, they will also bestow blessings on them. Meles is a post-wedding party that occurs the day following the wedding, usually in the evening or late at night.
