Pic shows a Masai bride. Here’s a very interesting background info on Masai Wedding Culture
That morning, the bride’s head is shaved and anointed with lamb fat. She is decorated by lmasaa, beautiful beaded decorations, and puts on her wedding dress. The dress is made by her relatives, not just her mother. In this way the wedding dress is an expression of community, not just individuality.
