5 Wedding Traditions in Morocco
As in other Muslim countries, a traditional Moroccan wedding ceremony lasts from four to seven days.

6 Before the Wedding The groom sent his parent to the bride house to demand them girl for Wedding. If bride’s parent are accept demand, they will apoint a dowry and a day for the wedding ceremonies.

7 Preparations begin the real preparations begin. Five days before the matrimonial event, necessities such as a mattress and blanket are taken to the bridal chamber.

8 the day before the wedding
Often, a bride is not expected to do any house work until her henna has faded. Once all this preparation is complete, food is prepared in excess to cater for unexpected guests and the festivities begin. In times past, the men and woman would celebrate these festivities at separate locations

9 There the bride is given a bath in hammam which is a sort of milk bath that is meant to purify the bride. Her negaffa (female attendants) will usually supervise the event. The negaffa - who are usually older married woman, female friends and relatives - then set about trying to beautify her . After dressing her in an elaborately decorated wedding kaftan (usually white) they proceed to decorate her with heavy jewelry and darken her eyes with kohl which looks a bit like thick dark eyeliner.

10 Day of Henna The group then proceeds to have a beberiska ceremony in which the hands and feet of the bride and her party are painted with henna. The bride's designs are always the most intricate and the various floral and geometric designs are meant to ward off evil spirits, bring good luck and increase fertility.

22 The wedding night At some point in the evening, the groom would leave to make his way towards the bridal party accompanied by a group of friends who sing, beat drums and dance. The bride would be lifted up on a circular cushion or table and the groom on the shoulders of his friends. The two would then be carried to the bridal chamber where they would be expected to consummate their marriage. The bridal party would then examine their sheets for signs of blood to confirm the bride's virginity. The two would journey to their new home and the bride would circle her home three times before becoming the keeper of her new hearth.
