The Krevatia which is also known as the Bed Making Ceremony is a Greek wedding tradition which blesses the marital bed and the couples fertility.
The marital mattress orÂ krevati in Greek, is decorated for the wedding and money is thrown on it by the relatives of the new couple as a gift for their new beginning and common life. The bed making ceremony is usuallyÂ done a couple of days before the wedding and sometimes it includes a tradition known as the flipping of the baby. A baby is placed on the wedding bed as a symbol of fertility and blessing, a girl if the couple wants their first baby to be a girl, or a baby boy.
Would you have a baby girl or a boy at your krevati ceremony?
