The Knocking on the Door

An African tradition with a moder day twist


In the modern-day vernacular, this simply means bringing your families together prior to your wedding to allow them to form a bond, or to know if you need to separate them at the wedding

Since marriage in African culture is considered the official joining of two families, a large emphasis is placed on getting family permission and blessings before the wedding.

.


African Tradition

In Ghana, the groom requests permission through the custom of "knocking on the door." Bearing gifts, he visits his potential in-laws accompanied by his own family. If his "knock" is accepted, the families celebrate and the wedding planning begins. Or, simply plan an outing (like a brunch or dinner date) to bring both families together before the wedding and begin forming family bonds.


Alternatives
