Description In some cultures, including that of the Rhydd Pobl, or the gypsies, crying the banns is customary before a marriage. This basically consists of an announcement of the coming marriage, insuring that as many people as possible know of the impending union, should there be any reason, such as a prior, unterminated, marriage, for the ceremony to be cancelled.
