Lebanese Weddings – A Grand Affair

Weddings in Lebanon are truly elaborate on a scale unlike any other in grandeur, cost, and entertainment. The Middle Eastern culture and Lebanese specifically, believe there is no spending ceiling because there is no cost when it comes to celebration and entertaining their loved ones with music, dance, and copious amounts of food. These elements combine to create a spectacle of an affair and tend to be the reason why the party lasts till dawn!
Celebrations go on for 3 days and simple or grand, a Lebanese wedding isn’t truly Lebanese without a ‘zaffeh’, the act of escorting the bride to her husband, in celebration of their holy marriage. Even the ‘zaffeh’ is a form of entertainment, celebration and dance because, on the third day, the groom is led by a group of dancers, as they play music, sing and dance on their way to the bride’s house.
Entertainment is an essential and important priority in Lebanese weddings. Music and dance are the hallmarks of celebration and fun in Lebanese families and culture.
A Middle Eastern wedding celebration, is one where the dancer has a special place. Usually a belly dancer or singer will entertain the guests and more luxurious weddings will have more than one entertainer.
As you can clearly see, the Lebanese truly believe a wedding is a celebration and there is no costs to keeping guests entertained.
Wow…can you imagine how much planning went behind this? OMG

Why do most Lebanese women not have bridal showers?
They normally have a different parties with family and friends that is why they do not have bridal showers. Bridal Shower is a western event but lately they have been having it.

The strong celebration aspect in Lebanese weddings is refreshing. I’ve photographed too many weddings that lack the notion of celebrating or rejoicing in what has taken place. To photograph a Lebanese wedding would appear to be a dream come true!
