Moroccan Wedding Caftans | Muslim Nikkah Wedding Styles

Moroccan Wedding Caftans or Kaftans

Moroccan weddings are lavish and colorful events. The wedding outfits worn by the bride, usually a caftan, is equally colorful, in all pretty hues. For instance, the orange caftan looks like a piece of art work, with hand made detailed work. The caftan is a long cotton or silk cloak buttoned down the front, with full sleeves, reaching to the ankles and worn with a sash. In Morocco, the caftan (or kaftan) is the national (original) dress, worn only by the Moroccan women. Moroccan men wear a hooded long cloak called the Jellaba.

The Moroccan caftan (kaftan) can be casual to formal (similar to a western dress) depending on the materials used. They are usually worn at dinner parties, baby showers, engagement parties and weddings, essentially any gathering where women gather together. It is an opportunity for women to dress up and show off to each other.

The caftan consists usually of two pieces, or sometimes more. There is an inner piece (long dress) and an outer covering (long cloak) and a sash or belt completes the look.

In addition to having a wide variety based on striking colors, the best things about Moroccan wedding caftans are the intricate detail to fabric and embroidery work. A woman gets to feel feminine and regal in these caftans, flowing long dresses that evoke a sense of romance.

It is a great choice for your wedding outfit, if you are looking to add some color to your wedding look. Since the caftan covers all parts of your body (if you stay away from the modern ones that are see-through, or made of thin material), you can easily incorporate the hijab with these wedding nikkah outfits.

Check out these Moroccan wedding caftan styles, and you will see what I mean. Absolutely gorgeous.

I love caftans!! And I agree that they are perfect as a wedding dress, why not wear something from a Muslim culture rather than follow the Western trends. I also agree that the new styles are generally not as good as the traditional ones, especially those that are overly revealing, but now and again you find one that is as stunning and the gorgeous traditional ones. Nice blog! :)
