Abstract:The Moroccan wedding is a system of ritual representations transforming the community and expressing an aesthetic and cognitive order. But the wedding ceremony is also a highly unstable 'text' capable, at any point, of shifting its significance. The ceremony transforms relationships and unifies oppositions; but at the same time its participants are capable of causing mischief and disorder. The author presents a description of the Moroccan wedding ceremony.
