The tradition of Apulian weddings
Prenuptial rites begin a few days before the ceremony
The wedding in Puglia is considered a real event to be celebrated following ancient rituals and traditions. This sacrament is considered a "supreme value" and is celebrated with joy and participation by the whole community. There are many customs that have been handed down until today and that characterize both the ceremony and the days that precede it. Apulian weddings are distinguished from the others by a strong attachment to the values of the past and for a perfect and meticulous organization of every single event of the party. It is customary for the spouses to go personally to all the guests to deliver participation to strengthen and strengthen kinship and friendship even more warmly. One of the most particular traditions concerns an event that happens a few nights before the wedding. The groom, in the company of a large group of friends and relatives, goes to the home of his future wife to dedicate a serenade to her. The surprise effect must be absolutely respected to move and amaze your loved one. This event is always planned well in advance, sometimes we resort to the help of a real orchestra to accompany the promise of love in notes or of stereo speakers to stage poignant love songs. At the end of the exhibition, the groom invites his love to take to the streets to give her the wedding present amid the applause of those present.
The rituals to follow on the wedding day
On the day of the ceremony, the guests go to the bride's house to wait for her exit, a large buffet is set up inside the house where they can look forward to the typical local cuisine consisting of typical sweets and an innumerable series of treats. At this juncture, the mother-in-law gives her daughter-in-law a gold necklace that symbolizes the profound bond that will bind the two women for a lifetime. Once the bride is ready she presents herself to the guests in all her splendor, it is a very touching moment because on leaving home, accompanied by her father, she performs the ritual of cutting the white ribbon to symbolize the separation from her family of origin and the beginning of a new adventure. The Apulian traditions are respected here in full with a cheerful procession that accompanies the bride through the streets of the village towards the church. A key moment that attracts all the locals who come to admire the bride with extreme warmth. Once the wedding was celebrated, all the guests went on a procession to the place where the wedding banquet was set up.
A colorful and festive row of cars follows the car of the new husband and wife by playing the horns and trying to make as much noise as possible. This custom has very ancient origins and is linked to arcane superstitions in which it was believed that the uproar took away misfortunes and evil spirits from the new couple. After the moment of yes in the church, the banquet is one of the most important moments of all marriages in Puglia. Celebrations usually take place in the morning and the wedding lunch starts around two in the afternoon and continues until late at night. The locations are usually very suggestive thanks to the incredible variety of possibilities that Puglia offers. Masserie, castles, villas overlooking the sea, golden beaches ... There are countless places where you can celebrate a fairytale wedding party and leave a lasting impression on all the participants. The Apulian wedding menu is extremely rich and this moment represents a fundamental event to share with loved ones in a festive, joyful and hopeful atmosphere for the future. Abundant appetizers, first courses of the autochthonous cuisine, second courses of meat and fish are interspersed with moments of singing and dancing that involve all the guests, all washed down with the incredible wines produced in this splendid region and known worldwide. At this juncture, the food offered becomes a real glue among all the participants to emphasize the gratitude of the spouses towards those who are celebrating them. Every link is strengthened and every situation can be moved.
One of the most touching moments and undoubtedly the bride's dance with the father between tenderness and happiness. The more the banquet will be rich and full of special effects, music, and dances, the better it will be appreciated by everyone. There are two crucial moments that attract the attention of every participant, especially those still single: the launch of the bouquet and the garter. The bride recalls behind her all the guests who have not yet married and throws her bouquet of nuptial flowers backward, whoever manages to take it will be the next to get married. Even the bridegroom performs this ritual by chastely slipping the garter from his beloved and throwing it towards the group of male bachelor guests, even in this case whoever takes the coveted fetish will soon marry according to ancient traditions of Puglia. The moment of cutting the cake is accompanied by songs and ditties of popular music and is often associated with splendid fireworks, another end of the local costume. The wedding in Puglia still has a real social and symbolic value, a party where folklore and tradition become the main elements that unite the present with the past in an atmosphere pervaded with happiness and engaging joy.
