Korean Wedding Akimzhan Sumbat Bt 15 -21
Wedding - a unique event, which is given special attention. Every country and every nation has its own traditions in carrying out this celebration, as well as in the process of preparing for it.
Traditional Korean weddings are based around and centered around traditional Confucian values. Every aspect of the wedding, from the arrangement of the marriage to the ceremony and post celebrations, had important and elaborate steps to go along with them.
In traditional Korean culture, like many traditional cultures, marriage between a man and a woman were decided by the bride and grooms elders. Marriage is considered the most important passage in one's life.
The first step is called the Eui hon, or ‘matchmaking’, this is when both the bride and grooms families discuss the possibility of marriage. Various factors are taken into consideration such as: social status, personality, appearance, academic and/or agricultural (industrial) achievements, as well as material harmony as predicted by a fortuneteller. "In general the Eui hon is determined when the bridegroom-side sends a proposal letter of marriage and the bride-side sends a reply letter which permits this marriage. " Once the response from the bride is sent back to the groom, if agreed, the groom then sets up a date for the ceremony
This second step is called Napchae, or ‘date setting’. The grooms year, month, day, and hour (according to the lunar calendar), which is known as Saju, is written on a paper and wrapped in bamboo branches and tied with red and blue thread. Lastly, the package is wrapped with a red and blue cloth and sent to the brides family. The birthdate of the groom is sent to a fortuneteller which sets the date based on the Saju. That date is then sent back to the groom
The last step in pre-ceremonial traditions is called the Napp’ae, or exchanging valuables. Once the date is set the groom then sends a box to the bride which is known as a Ham. In the Ham there is typically three items. The Hanseo, the Ch’aedan, and the Honsu. Of the three the most important is the Hanseo, or marriage papers. This is given to the bride in dedication to wed only one husband
Ceremony In ancient times, weddings (Honrye) were held in the bride's yard or house. The groom traveled by horse to the bride's house and after the wedding ceremony took his wife in a palanquin (sedan chair) to his parents' house to live.
The bride and groom wore formal court costumes for the wedding ceremony. Ordinary people were permitted to wear the luxurious clothes only on their wedding day
Gift exchange The bride's gift is Yedan. 70 days before the wedding, the bride sends the groom's family a cut of silk fabric. In the old days such a gift was very valuable and was considered a sign of respect. Modern girls replaced silk with other gifts, for example, a set of bed linen or a set of quality dishes.
The groom's gift is a casket and a chonhonso . Presented for 7 -10 before the wedding, before this gift was presented the day before the celebration to the bride's family. The contents of the box are two cuts of silk of blue and red for the skirt of the traditional Hanbok suit. The fabric of two colors symbolizes the feminine and masculine. "Cheonhonso" is a letter written by the groom's father, in which he thanks the parents of the bride for agreeing to give their daughter in marriage .
In the morning in the groom's house the whole family gathers at the table. After a short meal, the groom, kneeling, thanks his parents for bringing him up and approving the choice of the bride. Then, dressed in a dress for the ceremony, together with matchmakers and friends hastens to the bride's house. There is a rite of ransom - the groom gives gifts to relatives, and children sweets and toys. Also on the way to the beloved are the girlfriends of the bride, arranging small contests - tests.
After the meeting, the bride and groom take the central place at the table. Parents give instructions to the bride and give her dowry - pillows, bed linen, kitchen utensils - everything that will help the newly-made wife, cope with the role of the mistress of the house.
And at this time in the groom's house they prepare for the arrival of the young. On the floor put a path of silk, put a bag of rice. The bride must cross the bag and walk along the silk path in order that the family has abundance and abundance.
To the place of the ceremony, the newlyweds come in advance. The bride with her friends is dressed up in a separate room. And the groom meets his parents with his parents.
The youngest mothers come first to the solemn hall, then the groom, and after that the bride and father are already walking, modestly lowering their eyes. In the traditional ceremony, the young people bow to each other, taste the ritual wine, bring their vows, and then bow to the parents. After the ceremony, the bride makes a bow before the parents of the groom, who is called "phbek". Becoming officially husband wife, the couple together with all the guests goes to the banquet.
