PERSIAN WEDDING TRADITIONS

Have you ever wondered what the persian wedding knife dance is all about? Persian weddings can often be associated with a number of traditions. These traditions generally give the families of the bride and groom an opportunity to mingle and celebrate. Having had the opportunity to photograph weddings in various countries, I consider myself lucky to have seen many cultural traditions that couples incorporate into their big day. The persian wedding knife dance is one of them.

WHAT IS THE PERSIAN KNIFE DANCE?

Also known as Ragsheh Chagoo, this popular tradition begins as soon as the couple want to cut the cake. In order to cut their cake, they must first earn the knife from the dancer. This is usually a bridesmaid, grooms friend, young girl or one of the guests.

The dancer must dance with the knife and tease the bride and groom. Dancers can choose to keep passing on the knife to someone else. At times, but not always, the groom can bribe the dancer with money, so he can obtain the knife and complete the cake cutting.

The dancing continues in good humor, as well as entertainment, until one of the dancers decides to give up the knife or they have been given money.
