Palestinian weddings last for two days. The first day is known as the Henna Night, during which two separate parties are held for the bride and groom. The groom’s family then goes to the bride’s family home with henna, and the groom’s mother paints henna on the bride’s face. The bride wears the henna dress on this night.
The official wedding ceremony occurs on the second day. The bride wears a white dress, and the groom’s female relatives wear embroidered dresses.
