Persian Wedding Customs

The Persian Wedding & The Sofreh Aghd

The Persian Wedding & The Sofreh Aghd

by Christen Behzadi

A year ago


So you are having a Persian Wedding! Probably one of the most exciting things a bride can be lucky enough to experience. The history, the customs, the ancient Zoroastrian cultural roots, the fact that its been practiced for thousands of years in Iran! Its all so exciting and wonderful. But lets be honest, we are not in Iran and the truth for most of us is that making the magic happen of a flawless Persian Wedding & Ceremony -even a simple one - isn't as easy as it looks on Pinterest.

Most lavish sofreh aghd take an incredible amount of planning and preparation even for very experienced designers. Coordinating all the details with essential vendors who may have limited understanding of the Persian Wedding can be uniquely challenging. Then there is a matter of having everything! Finding items such as  Colored Espand/Esfand , Sugar Cones, Persian Wedding Coins, Almond Clusters, Decorated Espand Flowers, Rock Candy Flowers, The exact wording of the ceremony vows, how to prepare non-Iranain family members for their role....lets just stop there. Its a lot!

This is where I come in with my expertise in this area. I have literally written the book on Persian Weddings. I was also #MarriedPersian back in 2009 and I understand the need to make things as approachable and understandable as possible. Persian culture must be learned over time.  The important cultural details we will cover here , get everyone up to speed and make your Persian Wedding a Perfect success.
