Got some of the essensials for my "dressings"

In Cyprus the bride's and groom's getting ready is a whole ritual on its own.  Its done with tradisional mucic and part of it is that the bride and groom must be -I don’t know how to say it in English- must be “smoked”. Picture it like the incents being used to “cleanse the bad energies”. And it requires a silver set called “kapnistomerecha” were we put little charcoals and we burn olive leafs specially blessed by the church.   These sets are usually passed down in a family and is only used in weddings. My aunt, my father’s cousin, has a set and we borrowed them for my wedding. I just polished them and they are ready!

We use the double one for the “smoking” and the tall one we put rose water that we spray on the guests hands.


I also borrowed the little silver plate the wedding bands will be placed...

(I could not get rid of all the tarnish from this one but I don't care)


Ok! Ok!  I know this is all Greek to you, but I’m excited and I HAD to shear with my PW friends - even if they dont know what the hec I'm talking adout! LOL
