The night before the wedding the bride will wash herself with hot water, water that has had special leaves brewing inside.
11:00pm: The Bride’s Sister-in-law came over to preform the ritual of hair combing and tying a red string in the Bride’s hair.
The next morning, the wedding day at 5:30am: The makeup artist and hair stylists arrive and the day begins.
8:30am: The Groom arrives and is not allowed to see the bride until he and his Groomsmen go some really ridiculous and funny tasks at the Bridesmaid’s request. Immediately following is the Tea ceremony at the Bride’s house and then at the Groom’s house.
I lost track of time after that. The wedding ended around 11:30pm, and there was so much going on during this wedding that this is 1 of 3 blog posts. The Bride had 5 dresses, (one she wore twice so maybe I should say she had 6 dresses) and for each dress she had different hair and makeup. I should also mention that I was a Bridesmaid/Photographer for this wedding. Maggie is a very dear friend of mine, and I think I cried at least 3 times on her wedding day.
