a true balkan wedding

You know, if you’ve never experienced a true Balkan wedding, you really ought to 😉 I was lucky enough to get invited through friends to this crazy wedding at Ulcinj in Montenegro and boy was the long drive worth it! Without spending too much time on the formalities we normally go through in our neck of the woods, the bride and groom decided to start the fun part. There was roughly 30ish minutes of “modern”, hip, western music during which a few of the younger guests dared to bust some moves on the dance floor. And I kept thinking I must be missing something, what happened to all the legendary tales you hear of Montenegrins and festivities?!

But them came the traditional Balkan music (play the one above if you haven’t already) and things got crazy 😉 Imagine 200+ guests (as you do, an average wedding by local standards) on their feet, dancing their hearts out and singing out loud to every single song that was played by the band! It was something else, let me tell you 🙂 I don’t know if the few shots I managed to take do it any justice, but take my advice and start making friends from the area because getting invited to one of these should be in anyone’s bucket list 😉
