Moroccan Wedding Traditions
Without getting into the multitude of details surrounding the rich traditions, a Moroccan wedding is an event celebrated for more than a day. The opening of the celebration starts with the hammam day where the bride and the women go to a public bath, reminiscent of a spa. The following day is the henna ceremony. This is when the bride gets her hands and feet beautifully tattooed to bring her luck in married life. The signature of the legal documents is done prior to the wedding with only the key people attending.
