Eritrea Relationships & Weddings Relationships & Weddings 


Eritrean weddings usually include two days of celebration. The first day focused on the Catholic wedding ceremony usually where the bride is beautifully fitted into a white gown. Then comes the traditional Eritrean wedding ceremonies are done on the second day of the wedding celebration; this is known as the Melsi.

Different from most other weddings, the Eritrean culture and weddings are about community-building; for six months leading up the wedding, both families will get together to cook, prepare, and make traditional drinks including Sewa (a beer-like alcohol) and mes (a fermented honey drink). And of course, these six months are also full of singing and dancing.

Although these cultural attributes have been watered down from time to time and in further apart location with modern technology changing lifestyles, there are still lots of families that practice these traditional attributes.
