The area that I live in is called Jaramana, it is in the suburbs of Damascus. Most of its inhabitants are originally from Palestine.
After the crisis, people from my area started doing their weddings in our hara (street). Previously everyone used to have their weddings in venues, however, after the crisis people started to fear the idea of having it at a venue to avoid big gathering.
Today most weddings in my area take place in the hara. The men’s party will take place in the hara. As for the women, they will find a big house in the area and gather all women there for a women’s party.
The idea is that men will have a mouled or a zaffe (singing and dancing) in the streets, the neighbors will watch the wedding from their rooftops or windows while taking pictures of the groom and his friends dancing. Simultaneously, at this time the women’s party will be taking place which would consist of the bride, her friends and family.
After the groom finishes from his party, he will head to the women’s party to dance with his bride etc then he’d take her home.
This is how most weddings in my area are noways.
