Iranian Weddings

Traditional Iranian weddings require the groom to buy the bride’s wedding dress. The wedding dress needs to have 10 feet of sheeting he will use to wrap around his bride. It is an Iranian custom that a content and happily married woman holds a shawl over the couple’s heads during the wedding. For good luck, two decorated sugar cones are shaved over the heads of the newly weds after the exchanging of wedding vows.
