Two weeks ago I had the honor of being invited to a Serbian Wedding by one of my good friends, who's cousin was getting married. The wedding took place in Sokobanja, a small town of about 8,000 residents located 230 KM east of Belgrade. Needless to say, this was as authentic a Serbian celebration as could be imagined. Serbian weddings are full of food, drink, and live music. Yes, Spanish, German and American weddings have all these elements too, but no, in Serbia it's very different, so much more intense. The people here are so warm hearted, so passionate, it was evident how strong the bond between family members and friends are in Serbian culture. Everyone seemed to know every song which was played during about an 8 hour period. Emotions were running high, a mixture of laughter, crying, hugging, and dancing, lots and lots of dancing.
