An Armenian Wedding Tradition

Blessings for the Bride & Groom

After the marriage ceremony and prior to entering their new home together as husband and wife, the bride and groom receive three blessings, traditionally given by the groom’s mother.

Lavash, Armenian flat bread, is placed over the newlyweds’ shoulders to bless them with good fortune & prosperity.

A spoonful of honey is fed to husband and wife to ensure a sweet marriage and life.

Finally, the bride and groom are given plates to break in order to dispel negative energy and evil spirits.
