In Egypt families, rather than grooms propose to the bride and many marriages are arranged. Also in Egypt, the zaffa, or wedding march, is a musical procession of drums, bagpipes, horns, belly dancers and men carrying flaming swords; it's a bright, colorful and musical way to announce the marriage is about to begin. I think that's a custom we should start in the states!

As in the past, many weddings in Egypt are still arranged, and the custom of the groom's family proposing to the bride is often practiced. Just before the marriage vows begin there is a musical wedding march called the Zaffa. There is traditional Egyptian music, belly dancers, drums horns and performers with flaming swords. Traditionally, Egyptians believed that the ring finger has the "vein amoris", the vein of love, which runs straight to the heart and soul.All wedding ceremonies have one thing in common, during the wedding reception all family and friends dance. The Egyptian style of dance places a stronger emphasis on the finer movements of the human body and is far more conservative than Turkish dances, although they have a similarity to the Lebanese dance styles. The basic dance vocabulary of all belly dance styles is very similar, with for example hip figures of eight, shimmies and the like. Make sure you hire an affordable but experienced photographer to record all these memories and customs, so they can be passed down for amny generations.
