Turkish Wedding Day 1 - Friday, June 24th


The earlier part of the day I have posted in an earlier post. The groom and his friends come and get the dowry of the bride to be. They leave and a party happens in the evening called the "Henna Party." There was live music, dancing, drinks, and snacks. You will see a tray on fire which I believe contains the henna that will be used to paint the hands (I think feet as well) of the bride and groom. The music is a traditional Turkish Music along with some Gypsy Music. There are Turkish Standards that everyone knows. The standards are regional and there are standards that are for the whole country. People were singing the music and dancing. The dance is a traditional dance as well. Very lively and fun!!!
