What to Wear in a Moroccan and Oriental Wedding?
The Kaftan Dress
In the world of fashion, there are very few things that remain the same. Trends come and go, and the way people dress is no exception. One of these trends is the oriental and Moroccan wedding. These weddings are very popular in North Africa due to their stunning decorations and rituals. Nowadays, these weddings are more like a fashion show than a religious celebration. The events are spectacular and memorable for all the guests who attend them. In fact, these weddings have become so fashionable that they’re now almost as formal as a black tie event. All of this is done in honor of a bride’s appearance at her wedding ceremony.
For that reason, it’s important to know what to wear at an oriental or Moroccan wedding. This will help you feel comfortable during the ceremony and reception. Most people choose traditional Moroccan wedding attire—also known as a kaftan dress or djellaba dress— when attending an oriental wedding. This choice honors the culture by wearing traditional clothing that’s been worn by women in Morocco for centuries. The main components of this dress include a tunic or shirt with long sleeves, side slits and a drawstring waistband known as a gandoura. Over this shirt should be worn another loose garment called a Dfina that has two tassels hanging down from it. Over this second garment should be worn another loose garment called a keffiyeh which is typically red in color to match the bride’s outfit. To finish off this ensemble, boots should be worn along with traditional jewelry such as earrings, necklaces and bracelets to complete the look.
Alternatively, if you want to go with more modern choices for an oriental or Moroccan wedding, you could consider wearing something like a kimono dress instead of traditional clothing from Morocco’s past. Kimono dresses originated in Japan over 200 years ago, making them more recent choices for an oriental wedding compared to Moroccan attire from centuries ago. The main components of this fashion choice are an open-fronted kimono with short sleeves and no collars along with some form of footwear such as Japanese geta sandals or Japanese zori shoes. Wig accessories can also be included if you choose not to go with your hair down on your head like Moroccans traditionally do at weddings.
