I still remember being an American bride in a Persian Wedding and wondering what all these different terms meant that I heard my husband's Iranian family saying. This word "Aghd" was used frequently. Aghd in Farsi means contract. In the wedding context it is referring to the Wedding contract. The Sofreh Aghd is translated into The "Contract Tablecloth." Which is really funny when literally translated! Its actual contextual meaning is The Wedding Table where the wedding contract ceremony takes place. Is this a religious ceremony? Is this an Islamic ceremony? Read below to find out more.
