HAVE FUN WITH BRIDEGROOM
Harmless Teasing by Bridal Attend.
ants Is a Feature of the Af-
ghan Wedding Ceremony.
The ceremony of the mirror, Is per- j
haps, the oldest custom In connection
with the Afghan wedding ceremony.
a mirror is placed before the bride,
ami the bridegroom Is asked to sit at
the bride's left. A shawl is held over j
them, nnd the bride unveils and looks
in the mirror. Husband and wife see
each other's face for the first time.
It is their first real meeting, says Ik-
bal All Shah, in Asia magazine. The
bride is shy and does not open her
eyes, and the bridesmaids and oth- J
or eli a IT her freely.
An el. ;raved silver bowl Is then
brought, with a little sherbet and a
plate of white rice pudding. The
bridegroom drinks a little of the sher-
bet and offers the bride a sip. She
closes her lips tit'lit, but force is
applied and a spoonful put into her
mouth; so also with the rice pudding.
A shower of roses announces the term-
ination of this rite. When the brlde-
yioom atte.iipts to rise, he finds he
is held down to the floor; a corner
of Ills coat has been sewed to the car-
|iet. There is a roar of laughter.
The offender is found—probaldy a
younger sister of t lie bride. She re-
fuses io undo the stitches unless a
gold coin is given to her. As soon
us iins toll is paid, the bridegroom
calls his attendants to bring his shoes,
but one of them Is missing. Some one
declares she knows who has the shoo.
It is returned on payment of two gold
coins, and the bridegroom is freed
from -his tormentors.
