In the Ancient Greek society, marriage was regarded as an auspicious relationship. Marriage was very important to carrying the family heritage. In the Greek culture, every respectable woman became a wife if she could. In marriage, there was hardly room for choice. Destiny played an important role in solemnizing marriage. Woman had no alternate other than marriage. The sacred wedding rituals were interwoven by various ceremonies. These ceremonies had ritual meaning and overlapping rites. There is great evidence regarding these rituals, both literary and artistic, which helps to provide a complete account of Greek customs. Offerings, dedications and sacrifices were made by the bride and the groom, as well as their families. Marriage consisted of a private contract where the woman was transferred to her husband. Marriage consisted of transfer, and transformation. Transformation means actually giving the responsibility of the woman to the man/husband. Many things pointed towards her transformation, like cutting of hair and offering them to virgin deities. Presenting the hair locks to the virgin goddesses often signified the attainment of womanhood.
