About "Weddings and Istanbul"
In Turkish culture, the long journey of a wedding begins with the families’ introduction prior to the wedding and continues with a visit to the bride’s house to ask for the family’s permission, the engagement party, the henna night and, finally, the night of the wedding. “Weddings and Istanbul” presents these customs alongside the traditions and rituals of different cultures. The reader, in turn, gets to find out about the wedding customs of Muslim, Greek, Syrian, Armenian and Jewish cultures.
If you’re curious to find out about weddings held in the Çırağan Palace, Four Seasons, Feriye, Pera Palace, Esma Sultan, Hilton, Conrad, Swissotel and many other great venues, you must read this book.
