Usually a week or two before they are married the future husband's parents make the Wedding Vase. When the Vase has been made, the Husband, along with his parents and all his relatives go to the bride's house. The parents of both the bride and the groom give the young couple advice to help them have a happy and successful marriage. The holy water is placed in the Wedding Vase and the Vase is turned around and given to the bride. She drinks from one side of the
Vase, turns it round again and gives it to the groom
who then drinks from the opposite side of the Vase. This ceremony unites them as one.The couple will treasure the Vase throughout their married life. Should one of them outlive the other, the remaining person will give the Vase to a couple known to be living a happily married life.
The Wedding Vase is treasured and protected always and it is never broken
