An engagement card is a good way to announce the big news of an engagement.
Afghan Engagement Party
An Afghan wedding/engagement party is interesting and unique. Afghans pay close attention to details such as the wedding dress, decoration of the food and the venue. They want to make it a memorable day for themselves and for their guests. During the wedding an Afghan bride wears a brightly colored veil with decorative details. The groom wears a long suit.
The bride and groom eat first at their wedding. All guests will stand in line for a beautifully decorated buffet, where guests can choose from traditional Afghan dishes such as: Qabili Palaw, Kabob, Mantu, Ashak Ferni and dessert. After desert the newlyweds cut the wedding cake. After the couple had a taste of the cake, a relative will cut the cake in small pieces and hands it out to the guests. At the end of a wedding party, a conventional dance is performed. When the dance is over is the couple will stand at the door to show their respect and gratitude towards the guests who attended the wedding.
