Little Known Persian Wedding Traditions: ( from The Persian Wedding Book): Did you know that in traditional Zoroastrian ceremonies (which the Persian Wedding is based) the space of A Sofreh Aghd was considered so sacred that no one was allowed to enter or come near the couple until the espand was burned over their heads? This was done by tossing loose espand seeds over burning coals and the rising smoke neutralizes any negative energy. This is still widely practiced today.

An abundance of espand is A Persian Wedding must.  7 Colors of Espand are available for purchase in our Sofreh Aghd Supplies. (U.S. copyright office TX78369000)
