Bride customs in Central Asia

Children’s marriages are arranged by families according to Key Eastern customs. They pick a acceptable boy or girl based on each person’s household history, monetary situation, and social standing. This is known as „adat“ in Kazakstan. The matchmaker ( „gyumzhan“ ) looks for a girl with good qualities who belongs to the same clan, tribe, and family. If a lady is discovered, the wedding is commemorated with‘ Yui- no‘ rituals, which are similar to the customary African wedding. Gifts like the Obi ( a sash ) that symbolizes female virtue and the Hakama skirt made of white Sendai silk, which represents loyalty, are exchanged.

The marriage festival itself is known as nikah. It is a theological ceremony that entails the bride and groom agreeing to get married after hearing the mullah’s meditation and asking them to do so. In order to prepare for lifestyle up, the bride and groom typically live separately until the wedding. To strengthen her relationship with her new husband, she receives advice from her female family and sings traditional wedding tunes.

Both families prepare a sizable feast the day before the bridal. The kid’s home receives products from the wedding as well. In some places, the bridegroom gives the ladies a bride as well. Depending on the community, this may involve a sizable sum of money and other assets.

The bride is led or carried to the home of her in-laws on the ceremony day. She is led to a curtain (koshogo, which is customarily hung in the center of the room ) and spends many times hiding behind it mongolian brides as her in-laws greet her and present her with items similar to more bright hats that symbolize purity.
