The Moroccan brideCaftan : Moroccan traditional dress

Written by Dana Peterson

The Moroccan bride wears at least three or four outfits on her wedding day. Already, she wears a green 2019 bridal Caftan on Henna day, and another outfit on the day of the marriage certificate (a ceremony that is not mandatory).

What is the difference between bridal caftan and a simple caftan?

In principle, the 2019 bridal caftan looks like a simple caftan or a traditional takchita, but it is designed with more noble fabrics and with more Maalem work. Some brides prefer to wear light caftans, but the accessories of the Negafa bring elegance and give the bride a very specific look in relation to the guests.

Another detail that characterizes the 2019 Moroccan bridal caftan is the length! Yes, like the train of the western wedding dress, the Moroccan wedding kaftan usually has a train behind. We have found that this is no longer the case with the 2019 bridal caftan, the woman is looking more and more for simplicity.

The 3 main outfits worn by the Moroccan bride

The number of bridal caftan and Takchita 2019 worn by the Moroccan bride differs according to her choice. But there are 3 types of must-have outfits that all brides should wear.

  1. Green caftan for henna

Henna day mainly precedes the big wedding day, which is the day the bride-to-be puts henna on her hands and feet. The number of guests rarely exceeds twenty people, and the bride wears a green kaftan embroidered with gold, usually in velvet.

  1. White Takchita

In principle, the white takchita is the first outfit worn on the wedding day. So if the bride refuses to wear the color white, she should at least wear a light-colored bridal caftan signifying her purity.

  1. The Fassia

The outfit named “La Fassia” is an important 2019 bridal caftan. This outfit can be white, green or red, and it is characterized by its shape and the large number of jewels worn with it
