Stefana

Stefana Orthodox Wedding Crowns brilliant and dazzling that possess a rich appearance  . Here you will find exquisite crowns stephana that with their beautiful and delicate patterns will enhance your celebration, turn it into something extraordinary and will be a treasured heirloom for years to come.

The two crowns stephana are linked together by a ribbon and they have several rich symbolisms for the Orthodox Wedding Ceremony.  

During the ceremony, the crowns/stephana rest on the altar table, atop a silver tray laden with candied almonds/koufeta and rice. The priest crowns the couple, and the "koumbaro" or "koumbara" - the sponsor who will participate in the service and has to get the crowns- switches the stephana back and forth 3 times, symbolizing that the two are now one. Holding hands and joined by their crowns, the bride and groom are led around the altar table 3 times by the priest, who chants 3 hymns and carries a gilded Book of Gospels, signifying that they will be following the word of God as they start their lives together. The circle also signifies the eternity of marriage. At the end of the ceremony, the priest invokes a blessing and lifts the crowns from the heads of the newlyweds, indicating the end of the marriage ceremony and the beginning of their lives together. After the wedding, the bride and groom take off the crowns and place them in the Wedding Crown Cases/Stephanothikes.
