Here is an awesome cultural spin on a traditional American bridal shower, a Moroccan Henna Party. As our dad is Moroccan-Israeli, we wanted to incorporate his culture as much as possible into the wedding planning.
       
                  

We started out this event with an overabundance of food and drinks in a more relaxed environment for the women to meet or catch up with old friends. The menu included traditional Moroccan salads and main dishes as well as a delicious white wine sangria.

                                           
As the night progressed, the men joined us and the music got louder. Lauren changed into her first traditional Moroccan costume to greet her guests. Costumes are beautifully embroidered in metallics and bold colors and embellished with jewels.

                                    
      
                       The room was tented with beautiful fabrics and strung with lanterns.

                          

 As Lauren changed into costume number two, guests welcomed the opportunity to change into costumes as well. Many had never experienced anything like this.

                     

                 
All of the immediate family moved into the tent to conduct the Henna Ceremony where you put henna in the palm of your hand for luck and as a memory of a special event.

   
Delicious homemade Moroccan cookies and tea with fresh mint were served, and the night got even louder as the DJ showed up. Everyone danced for hours to Israeli club music.

                                   

Lauren is extremely lucky to have an amazing family that not only worked hard hosting this event but also wanted to share their culture with all of their guests. Thank you Evon and Suzy for all your creativity and hard work. People are still talking about how much fun they had, but mostly everyone talks about how good the food was which came from our Aunt’s restaurant, Suzie’s Deli-cious.
