My big Fat Moldovan Wedding

In the midst of these enchanted surroundings, in this heavenly corner filled with flowers and fairy-tales, we welcome you to fully experience the most important moments of your life.
How about a fairy-tale wedding in Valeni ? 

Early Rise

The wedding festivities start early in the morning to allow all the ancestral customs such as “Dressing the bride”, “Stealing the Bride from Home”, “Meeting the Fathers in Law”, and will be organized inside the touristic complex together with the Civil Matrimony . The wooden pavilion, with a capacity of approximately 150 guests, adorned with rustic symbols, traditional carpets and selected dishes, brings you inside the atmosphere of “wedding tent”.

After all the pre-wedding customs have been well followed, the wedding party is moving inside the “D’or” Restaurant (the tradition of “The Wedding Appearance”) where the “Great Feast” is taking place. The groom and the bride are being transported there inside a Festive Wedding Carriage, decorated with white ribbons, flowers, and soft straw pillows symbolizing the purity, unity with mother Earth, as well as prosperity of their new Marriage.
