      associated with honor and dignity, and are the fundamental values of Cretan culture
      and tradition.
    3. At the wedding, they wear a handmade white silf scarf with tassels (sariki) on their
      heads or shoulders.
      4. The wedding party always ends with a love song (mantinada)
      It is an improvised Cretan song for the bride and groom and is always joyful.An informal, unwritten, but unbreakable rule of the Cretan wedding… the dance!
      If you find yourself at a Cretan celebration, be prepared to dance until morning.
