Before the wedding, the groom with the best man and their guests walk to the house of the bride with musicians playing the Cretan “lyra” and bridal songs dressed in local costumes. The bride awaits at her family house with the door shut. As soon as the groom arrives, more serenades start to convince them to open the door. When this happens, the groom with a rose bouquet in hand, greets and kiss- es the hand of the bride’s parents, for their blessing, asking for the bride’s hand to lead her to church.Meanwhile, relatives and friends send wedding gifts, “kaniskia”, to the couple’s parents and to their new home.
