Japanese lovers married according to Turkish tradition.
These clothes's name is 'bindallı'. It's usually red color and girls wear at Henna Night.
What's Henna Night?
The ceremony held one day before the wedding in the home of bride (sometimes and groom) is called the henna night. It generally takes place at the girls home and among women. Before, everyone play folklore and have good time. After,someone brings henna and a woman says sad folk song. Bride, her mother and others always cry. :D
Turkish wedding is as music entertainment. Marriage is very important for Turkish. A little sad. Because they're getting married live with family to that day. (Usually) (Even if 30 Years etc.) Sometimes very difficult for the bride's father or mother. They are both sad and rejoicing. :D
