This past weekend one of my best friends Nazike got married. The wedding was traditional Albanian wedding (pictures to follow in a different post). Anyway, Naz’s family is from a different area than my family, so they have different traditions. Her family is a lot more traditional, I always joke how my family and I are fake Albanians. They keep a lot of the old school thing we have long forgotten. It was however, nice to be involved in this. Especially since you only invite close women in your family. I LOVE YOU NAZIKE! (I know you’re reading this)
These pictures are of Nazike’s Bedroom they showed all her LOUBS and stuff she will wear when she is a NUSE (the first year your married you are refereed to as a Nuse which is a bride).
These^ are called Ganiturra or Ojme (spelling) They are handmade and we are suppose to put them around our house for decor but no one really does that anymore. We just make them because its tradition. Back in the day the girls use to make these while they were engaged, as gifts for her future house.
No, this is not her wedding dress. This is one of the many dresses I spoke about. This dress however was hand made by her future mother in law. She sewed each bead on that dress by herself. Leave it to Naz to have something couture. You can not see it in this picture but it really is wow!
now time for what I wore:
