The cultural weddings always keep you on your toes, and the Serbian culture definitely know how to celebrate an occasion like no other. The wedding of Sasa and Mila was that occasion which demanded a major celebration of close family and friends and dancing....lots and lots and lots of dancing.
Words can not describe the atmosphere at a Serbian wedding. This Brisbane Serbian wedding did not disappoint. From the accordion playing from sunrise to sunrise, yes I meant to say sunrise again. The beautifully decorated bulkia being passed around with homemade rakija from sunrise to sunrise. Wedding decorations at the front of the bride and grooms house. A lonely apple hanging from an arbour at the brides house where the groom must retrieve the apple before he is allowed to enter the bride’s house. The fake brides which are sent out to the groom to trick him, on a side note, some of the fake brides range from a male cousin to the grandma. The bartering for the bride with huge sums of cold hard cash. With all of this happening even before the wedding ceremony, it truly is like watching an action packed movie with very attractive people having the biggest party of their lives. It must be seen to be believed.
