Bedouin Wedding


Here at Bedouin Discovery Tours we are offering you the chance to get 
married the traditional Bedouin way in the beautiful desert of Jordan.


For Bedouin the wedding doesn't just represent the coming together of 
a bride and groom but represents the joining of two families, and 
weddings are a festive occasion in which entire communities gather to 
celebrate the union. Traditionally, Bedouin weddings go for three days 
and involve three celebrations, two at the house of the groom, one 
which is public and dominated by men, and one which is private and 
dominated by women; the third celebration which starts at the house of 
the bride lasts for two days until it moves to the groom's home on the 
third day.


The wedding starts off on the first day quietly with people coming 
from all around to pay their respects to the bride and groom in their 
respective locations and involves ceremoniously drinking traditional 
Bedouin coffee. On the second day the party continues as more and more 
people come to join the celebrations. It is usually on the second day 
of the wedding that the party reaches its most festive level with 
singing and dancing lasting throughout the night and into the early 
morning. On the third day the most important part of the wedding 
occurs where the groom's party forms a procession and travels to the 
bride's house, continuing the celebrations as they go singing on their 
way. Once they reach the home of the bride she is brought out of the 
house and travels, traditionally on a camel, to the house of her 
husband. The third day culminates, at around sunset, with a feast 
shared by all the guests after which the newly-weds are left in peace 
and quiet.


Bedouin Discovery Tours can provide you with all of the things you 
need for your very own Bedouin Wedding from the traditional Bedouin 
goat hair tents, to the traditional Bedouin coffee prepared in the 
fire in brass coffee pots.
