Get Inspired by the traditional wedding in Spetses

The groom sets off to meet his best man followed by violinists playing Greek island wedding music, "patinada", along with the father of the bride, friends and family. The best man with the young ring-bearer and two boys holding candles accompany the groom to his bride-to-be.

Meanwhile, the bride's mother, family and friends help the bride to get ready and when they're done, they shower her with rice and sugared almonds. Her father-in-law, the first to arrive, places a golden coin in her shoe and only then does she agree to arise from her couch.

Once the groom arrives, the bride's mother treats him to “belde”, the official spoon sweet of Spetses with quince, the symbol fruit of prosperity since Homeric years. The two parties depart for the church and once they meet the groom takes the bride from his father. After the ceremony, the newlyweds return to their house-to-be where the mother of the groom or bride welcomes them by pulling them in with her scarf.
