[MUSIC] Hey, guys, welcome back to my channel. It’s so good to have you back. I am super super super excited because today’s video is the first video of my first series called brides around the world this series. I’ve been thinking about for over a year now, and it was actually supposed to come out in April but due to coven and everything happening. A lot of brides had to cancel their wedding. So I just thought it wasn’t really appropriate. I just love weddings. I love everything about weddings. I love how brides have to get dolled up! I love the cultural aspects of weddings. How every culture is different and every bride is different. I had two weddings, one in Toronto, and then I had one in England and one was very different than the other. Because my husband and I are from two completely different cultures. Usually bridal traditions have been passed on for, like hundreds and hundreds of years, so when traditions are implemented during the bridal process. And while you’re getting married, it’s such a beautiful thing when you really think about it, especially when you’re getting to know another person’s culture. This is all new territory. That’s exactly how I felt we did. An Asian bridal transformation about two years ago with Aisha and Hamaira. I’ll link it down in the description box, and you guys have loved it, so I thought let’s celebrate each country’s brides and kind of get to know each other’s cultures. I thought it would be really really good way to promote small businesses from all over the world and from different countries and kind of just absorb the culture and the beauty of it, so I’ve decided to work with different people from all over the world and sort of have them transform me into one of their brides talk about the culture’s symbolic practices. When I was planning my wedding, It’s a very male dominated industry, and that really bothered me because most things are male dominated. And now I feel like it’s starting to change there’s. A lot of women photographers. There’s a lot of women Djs. If you love weddings if you love brides, if you love wedding dresses and all that beautiful, fun stuff. I think you’d really love getting to know different. People’s cultures. Today is the first one, and I filmed this back in February. Super super excited. I actually did this one. In my home? I collaborated with a friend of mine sama and her mother, who are actually really big. In the Moroccan bridal industry, she travels back and forth to Morocco. She transforms brides from all over the world who better to collaborate with for a Moroccan bride than SEMA. Her mother also has a bridal clothing company where she rents out bridal dresses. So I thought it was fun. They came over, we had coffee and we just caught up on life and she transformed me into a Moroccan bride, which was super super fun. So this one was actually northern Moroccan if you are based in London or if you’re willing to come down here and collaborate with me if you specialize in traditional bridal wear, hit me up in my DMS, I’ll add my email down below. I would love to see if we can sort of work together. Share your work. Share your business and share your beautiful culture as well. If you’re new to my page, make sure you hit The subscribe. Button, hit the bell notification and join the family. So getting ready with sama was absolutely a blast like we just caught up on life. She’s actually a good friend of mine from london. The first outfit that I put on is called the Shidda, and it’s actually a traditional northern Moroccan outfit. It’s usually worn as the first bridal outfit, so when the bride wears this outfit, it’s supposed to represent shyness. So the bride has this veil draped over her face, So the color of the outfit can be varied, but most of the traditional colors are emerald green or true red. The jewels can be gold or silver, but gold again is the most traditional color. Another thing that I really loved about the Moroccan bridal dresses are they’re usually one size fit all so really doesn’t discriminate. I’m a size 16 and she brought the dress and they fit me perfect. They emphasize the waist and they kind of just flare out and like an a line, They’re just super super, beautiful and figure flattering, which is what I really loved about it. Second outfit I put on is called the Libsa, Xena. I think I said that wrong. Libsasina the outfits can traditionally be like super large, super blinding super bling and also very, very heavy. There are also options of wearing more of like a still glam version, which is actually what I ended up wearing. It’s more like neutral version of the glammed kaftan, which is absolutely beautiful. I feel like that color that I wore would go with So many things. Jewelry is so decadent. The outfit is so extravagant that usually brides rent it, which I think is a great idea. I mean, I love my wedding dress. But there were so many that I wore if I could at least rent one of them. It saved me money and it still looked the exact same, so I will link down in the description box. The company these dresses were borrowed from a really cool thing that Samara does consultation that’s involved. There’s an outfits that they provide. There’s jewelry that they provide. There’s hijab and hair styling makeup that they do so somehow did my makeup, and they also stay with you in the entire wedding night to make sure that there they help with every single movement and make sure everything looks perfect with every angle at every second. How crazy is that another thing that I found really interesting is the north, the south, the Berber and the Sahara of Morocco will all have traditional clothing that are completely different, but one thing that they do have in common is the second outfit the lip Sazina, um, throughout the entire Morocco, which is pretty cool Because I sort of can relate with my tribe. Our outfits are different than all the other tribes of Ethiopia, but there’s like certain things that look similar like our headpieces would be the same. If you guys saw omar’s reaction. When he saw me in this lip cesina, he was like heart eyes popping out of his head. He was like, whoa. It was the exact same expression, Probably even more of like a wow than when I got married. I was a little like I mean, I would. I would expect the same amount of overwhelmness, but you’re a little more overwhelmed. It was very extravagant like I look. I felt like a princess completely. And what really made me? Happy is the size thing. Usually I kind of struggle. I’m more on plus size, so I have difficulties finding clothing, but this is like a one size fit all without further ado. Please enjoy the northern Moroccan ride.
