Golden Wedding: renewal of wedding vowsZLATA POROKA – OBNOVITEV POROČNIH ZAOBLJUB

Description

The golden wedding is one of the most important anniversaries in a couple’s life. This is the 50th wedding anniversary celebrating an amazing 50 years together. The symbol of this venerable date is gold, which embodies everything that has been built over the years of hard work.

A golden wedding occurs only once in a lifetime. When it happens, the spouses are in a time of life when their children are adults and may already have grandchildren of their own or even great-grandchildren. This venerable anniversary is a great opportunity for the couple to renew their wedding vows. The desire to celebrate is sometimes expressed by the bride and groom themselves, but often it is a surprise carefully prepared for them by their children, relatives, and friends. In the western Slovenia, it is customary to prepare a wedding for the newlyweds together with a celebration for neighbours and friends. The couple can opt for a civil or church wedding.

Intention

My husband Angel and I got married at a very young age. Today we have two adult sons and four grandchildren. Having 50 rich years of marriage behind us, we decided to organize the celebration of our golden wedding with the help of our children, relatives, and friends.

The beginning of the celebration was on Friday when neighbours and friends prepared a party for us in our yard. Traditionally in the Karst region pine branches are placed on the arch of the courtyard door and decorated with flowers. On Sunday, however, we had a church wedding in our home village and after the ceremony we had lunch with our extended family at a restaurant and danced to live music. We rounded off the celebration with a beautiful wedding cake. I wish there were as many high wedding anniversaries as possible between couples, because in this way we are teaching young couples and our own children that mutual respect and love can go a long way.

Opis

Zlata poroka je eden zelo pomembnih jubilejev v življenju para. To je 50. obletnica poroke, neverjetnih 50 skupnih let življenja. Simbol tega častitljivega datuma je zlato, ki pooseblja vse, kar je bilo zgrajeno v letih trdega dela. Zlata poroka nastopi samo enkrat v življenju. Ko jo doživita, sta zakonca v obdobju, ko so njuni otroci odrasli in morda že imata vnuke ali pravnuke. Ta častitljiva obletnica je odlična priložnost, da par obnovi svoje poročne zaobljube. Željo po praznovanju včasih izrazita zlatoporočenca sama, velikokrat pa je to presenečenje, ki jima ga skrbno pripravijo otroci, sorodniki in prijatelji. V zahodni Sloveniji je navada, da se zlatoporočencema pripravi ponovno poroko skupaj s praznovanjem za sosede in prijatelje. Par se lahko odloči za civilno ali cerkveno poroko.

Namen

Z možem Angelom sva se poročila zelo mlada, imava dva odrasla sinova in 4 vnuke. Za sabo imava pestrih 50 let zakona in sva ob najini obletnici  s pomočjo otrok, sorodnikov in prijateljev organizirala praznovanje zlate poroke. Sosedi in prijatelji so nam pripravili zabavo na petkov večer. Tradicionalno se na Krasu na obok dvoriščnih vrat postavi borove veje, ki se jih okrasi s cvetjem. Na dan nedelje pa sva imela cerkveno poroko v domači vasi in po obredu smo šli skupaj s širšo družino na kosilo v restavracijo in plesali ob živi glasbi. Praznovanje smo zaokrožili z lepo poročno torto. Želim si, da bi bilo med pari čim več visokih obletnic porok, ker s tem učimo mlade pare in naše otroke, da se z medsebojnim spoštovanjem in ljubeznijo daleč pride.
