Agreement signed


When the groom's overtures have been accepted by the bride's family and the bride accepted by the groom's, they are both prayed over and their union is blessed. The new couple then take a seat on the ceremonial bridal chair where the bride performs her first traditional duties of feeding her husband with a piece of cake and then adjusts his dress in a manner signifying that she will beautify his life. After that comes the celebration dinner or lunch party.
