Wonder no more! This is a stunning and super traditional Cretan wedding where the bride and groom are wearing traditional clothes (pretty rare these days). Enjoy!

This is very traditional, and what you also see happening in this video is a baptism. This is part of the video isn't traditional. Greeks recently started having baptisms and weddings on the same day - I'm not sure why this is, but it could be to save money because they're both very expensive events.

I'm trying to get my wife to do this for our second wedding ceremony (we had a civil wedding with only 10 people and now we're trying to plan for a larger religious ceremony for both of our families in Greece), but she won't do it. This is similar to what she'd wear if we did it, and I'd wear a tsolias.
