Greek Wedding
Греческая Свадьба

Все изложенное ниже будет основываться исключительно на местных традициях и собственном опыте).

Свадьба! –  для многих это слово звучит, как торжественное и романтическое событие с оттенками взволнованности, определения и букетом повышенных чувств и эмоций. Честно говоря, я и сама любитель свадеб и всяческих торжеств. В каждой стране такое важное мероприятие проходит в соответствии с местными традициями и укладом жизни. На кавказе, в средиземноморских и восточных странах свадьбы проходят более традиционно с приглашением многочисленных гостей.

Я же хочу поделиться с Вами тем, как все это происходит в Греции.  Итак, в Греции, да и в остальных европейских странах, в брак вступают неохотно, а если и решаться, то точно после 30 лет как минимум.  Вообще принято считать себя молодым до 40 лет. Все хотят быть независимыми и не связывать себя ни брачными узами, ни обязательствами.  Конечно же это хорошо, но с другой стороны вся эта ситуация ведет к понижению демографии в целом.  

Если все же решились на столь серьезный шаг, то перед тем как вступить в брак и юридически оформить свои отношения – пара  живет 2-3 года совместно, дабы проверить свои отношения на прочность и удостовериться, что после свадьбы смогут ужиться вместе.  Очень распространен и тот факт, что пара может обручиться, прожить вместе пару лет, не вступить в брак и разорвать помолвку. Те, кто все же определились и решили связать себя узами брака, то тут все будет завить от желания и вероисповедания, а также материального состояния.  В нынешней ситуации кризиса и банковского контроля в стране большая часть пар выбирает упрощенные варианты оформления своих отношений. Просто расписываются в Демархии (Мэрия) и одевают кольца. После может следовать праздничный обед в кругу самых близких людей.

Я же хочу описать настоящую, традиционную греческую свадьбу.

    Итак, по традиции, перед днем заключения брака молодые остаются ночевать в своих родительских домах. День свадьбы начинается с прихода близких родственников и друзей в родительские дома молодожен, где им все дружно помогают одеть свадебные наряды, уложить волосы и сделать мейкап (желательно только для невесты)). Традицией является и написание невестой имен незамужних подружек на подошве свадебных туфель. Считается, что обладательница имени, которое не сотрется с подошвы туфель невесты после всей брачной церемонии, выйдет замуж следующей. В это время в доме жениха вся  процедура одевания сопровождается с распиванием различных по своему виду и количеству спиртных напитков. Друзья отвечают за атмосферу в баре жениха.  Обычно наряд для невесты покупается за счет родителей жениха, а костюм жениха – за счет родителей невесты.

 До брачной церемонии жених и невеста не видят друг друга. Жених встречает невесту в церкви и вручает ей свадебный букет. Церемония в церкви обычно проходит вечером.  Друг и подружка молодожен, как правило, супруги. Их в Греции называют «кубарами». Кубары дарят подарок молодоженам, оплачивают венчание, помогают в     украшение церкви, покупают тиары и специальное вино для венчания,  а также держат тиары над головами молодожен при совершении обряда бракосочетания и одевают  им кольца.   По поводу обручальных колец. На обручальных кольцах будущих супругов выгравированы имена. На кольце невесты – имя будущего супруга, а на кольце жениха – имя его будующей жены. После бракосочетания выгравировывается также и дата свадьбы.

После проведения церковного обряда молодожены, священник и кубары подписывают сертификат о бракосочетании. С этого момента молодожены официально регистрируют свои отношения. При выходе из церкви, приглашенные гости на счастье осыпают молодожен рисом. Там же раздаются памятные «бомбоньеры» - конвертики из ткани или же коробочки, состоящие из глазированного, белого цвета миндаля «куфеты».
