Traditional Bulgarian Wedding in the Bulgarian Restaurant Chevermeto
The Bulgarian restaurant Chevermeto offers the unique opportunity to turn your wedding into a typical Bulgarian traditional wedding. It is able to take you and your guests back in the history.
We will meet you with a bagpiper, a loaf, honey and salt. The young couple will step the threshold on a white carpet covered with flowers.
The bride is “stolen” by the relatives and the friends of the wooer, and before the marriage he is shaven by a local notable person as it is according to the tradition. At the same time the bride’s hair is plaited by light-fingered girls and she is put on a red veil. A ritual bread is kneaded under the sound of a sonorous bagpipe.
The bride kicks a copper with water in which there are a white and a red flowers which symbolize the children of the future family. The tradition says that the flowers that are ahead show what the first child in the house will be. The red bunch is for a girl and the white is for a boy.
The ritual ends with a lively horo, pouring wine, songs and dances till dawn.
