Charivari pronounced "shah ree - va ree" the name for the old Cajun custom in which the friends of a newlywed couple throw a loud raucous party at the home of the new couple on the night of their marriage. This party was a common occurrence in the prairie region of Cajun Louisiana when one of the wedding party was getting married for the second time to a person who had never been married. A wild party is anticipated but just what will occur is an uncertainty.
