An old Palestinian wedding (not that old , maybe in the 90’s) its so cool because the ceremony is still the same but in a modern way . I actually remember when weddings were really close to this also I remember my parents’ wedding photo album !

This is ” Henna ” party which be in the day before the wedding . Basically the bride wears the ” thobe ” the traditional Palestinian dress and the guests too . It’s for women only . The groom’s family goes to the bride parents house - which the party is - and brings ” Hena ” and sweets .. they put ” Henna ” on the brides hand - like the picture - and sing traditional songs and Zaq’areed .
the head dress was an important element of married women’s dress. It was composed of several layers of material embroidered outside. On the embroidery was added coral beads, and golden and silver coins. These coins, together with the heavy silver pieces of jewelry, represented the bride’s dowry.
