Families of Georgia


The modern world leaves its imprint on everything and even on ancient customs, which once were honored and carefully guarded by our ancestors. Many people are still trying to preserve what is left or are being gathered by the grains forgotten for many years.

A complete and happy family is important for every person, no matter at what time period he realizes it. Sooner or later, each of us starts to think that only a friendly family can save us in this complex world.

Wedding is the beginning of family relationships, and much depends on this important and significant event for each of us. Many people dream that this day was the only one in his entire life and that he will remain forever in my memory. The most beautiful thing is when wedding ceremonies are held in compliance with all ancient customs, which are always beautiful and rich.

Georgia is the country in which all the holidays are bright and colorful, where there is always a huge number of people. All relatives, relatives and friends gather for many major events and celebrations, in order to congratulate the originators of the celebration and give presents.

Georgian families are used to richly and noisily celebrating many holidays, and the most luxurious of them is a wedding. The Georgian wedding is first and foremost a large number of guests, who are always recruited more than a hundred. Invitations to weddings should not be rejected.

If the guests refuse to come to the wedding or accept the invitation, do not show up at the party, then this can seriously hurt the family. The reason for refusing an invitation to a wedding can be the beginning of a real war between two families, which can last many years.

Some time ago, in all Georgian families, the decision to marry and even to choose a couple was always accepted only by the parents. Now this is not so actual and parents do not interfere with the choice of their children, but this does not mean that the wedding can take place without the consent of the parents.

The final decision is still made by the parents, after the choice of children is approved. Until then, both sides are trying to learn as much as possible about each other.

Not always a decision can be made in favor of the young, if one side or another refuses to allow the children to marry, but such cases occur less and less often.

The ceremony of engagement in Georgia itself is very beautiful and only this one causes the desire to marry or get married in order to find yourself on the spot of a beautiful couple. At the moment when the bride enters the house where she will live with her young husband, the bridegroom rises to the roof of the house and releases a white bird to freedom.

After this young couple pour a glass of wine, which the groom drinks first. After this, the groom puts an engagement ring in the glass and hands the glass to the bride.

The bride also has to drink from this glass and only then the groom takes the ring out of the glass and hands it to the bride, accompanying these actions with the words of eternal love and fidelity storage.

Next, the bride starts to inspect the house, in which she will soon become a full-fledged mistress. Before entering the house, young people in Georgia smash together a plate of “for good luck,” and relatives give young adornments of wood, which are a symbol of life.

In order for the young people’s life to be rich and happy, grain is scattered in the corners of the house. The bride must necessarily touch her kettle in the house, in order to make it clear that she will be the keeper of the hearth.

The most important person at every holiday in Georgia, of course, is the toastmaster.Nobody can compare in eloquence with this man who knows how to cheer guests and make a holiday truly unforgettable.

At the wedding, the toastmaster should try most so that the young can not forget this day ever. Tamada himself also has a large number of toasts and every guest makes a toast to honor the young, so that guests will not have to be bored, because every toast is a small story from a life that always contains something instructive.

However, the very first toast must necessarily be said to each other in honor of a prosperous, quiet, rich life and in honor of the fact that the house always sounded childish voices and laughter, that the house was a full cup, and that all the troubles pass by and not touch happy family life of these two loving people.

Everyone knows about the custom of kidnapping a bride. This ritual always happens only with the approval of the relatives of young and young themselves.


Most often this ritual is remembered in order to avoid the high costs of organizing a lavish and rich wedding. This custom is used in families with little financial resources and the bride kidnapping allows you to get by with just a small feast, which does not need much money.

After a feast a marriage can be considered a prisoner. If desired, the wedding can be celebrated even a few years after the young lived together.

All the main expenses are taken by the groom’s party, so the customs of bride kidnapping are still relevant. In this case, nobody cares about the material situation of the bride herself, because the main advantage for a woman is modesty, economy and kind character.

A man should be the main protector and support for the family, who is obliged to solve all family problems and protect his wife and children. In the man is brought up hardness of character and masculinity.

Women care for the house and children, preservation of life and family values. She must educate children so that they honor the ancient traditions of the people, appreciate family ties and respect their parents and elders.
