Moroccan WEDDING TRADITION
THE WEDDING CELEBRATION DAY
It’s THE big day ! Generally, this celebration takes place in a rented place for Moroccan weddings. If you are looking for the best place to celebrate your moroccan wedding, discover the BAB SAHRA FES , a unique place to celebrate love. While waiting for the bride to make her big entry, guests are received with mint tea and moroccan sweets. Then, the couple enter in the luxurious room, accompanied by the singing of Neggafates, the master wedding planner. One of the most awaited moments is Amaria Tour. The groom and the bride are carried in two wonderfully decorated seats (respectively called Mida and Amria) and lifted by four people. In the background, traditional moroccan music is played.
After this emotional moment, everybody eats Moroccan specialties and finishes the night dancing. Finally, the newlyweds will spend the night at the groom’s house, where his family will be waiting for them with milk and dates, symbolising their wish for a sweet and peaceful life.
THE DIFFERENT OUTFITS OF A MOROCCAN WEDDING
Traditionally, the groom wears a jabador, a selham or a djellaba. Nowaday, grooms wear modern classical suits too. Bride’s outfits are more exciting. In fact, the moroccan bride can have up to 7 different outfits !
- A green and gold caftan for the henna ceremony
- A white Takchita which symbolizes purity for the beginning of the wedding ceremony .
- The Fassiya, which is an incredible dress with head ornaments worn during the Amaria tour. Generally, the Fassiya is white, gold green or white
- A Rbatia,often blue representing Rabat’s region
- A Sahraouia, a dress wrapped around the body as a tribute to the Moroccan Sahara region
- A Soussia, a very colourful dress and decorate with Berber patterns
- Mejdoub, a gold and embroidered caftan.
The traditional sewing of the Moroccan caftan is distinguished by its belonging to famous Moroccan regions. Fassi sewing is characterized by a long-standing originality that blends the originality of mastery with the “Sicilian” threads that are shimmering with luster, and which the Fassi woman is not satisfied with as an alternative. And there is lace sewing, which is also called makhzani sewing, because it makes the dress a loose caftan, as was worn by the women of the palace in the past.
When finished, we will serve you a meal that includes 7 types of salad accompanied by a tagine, and at the end you will have seasonal fruits, and do not forget Moroccan tea and Fassian sweets.
