Getting Married The Algerian Way

The wedding day in the Berber community is a big day, during which the bride will join her new family. The groom's family forms part of the procession, called "iqfafen" on their way to take the new bride from her home. In the past, the bride would be brought to her husband's house on a donkey or mule's back and a relative would be in charge of this task. Gone are the days of donkeys and mules. They have been replaced by nicely decorated cars.
