Marriage rituals occupy a special place in Kazakh traditions. The celebration of the creation of a new family has traditionally been composed of two key events: “sending off” the bride, which is done by her family, and the main celebration, the wedding, organized by the groom’s side. Weddings are preceded by important Kazakh customs, such as kuda tusu – the marriage proposal – and syrga salu – a ritual in which the future mother-in-law puts earrings on the bride as a sign of agreement between the in-laws of the marriage – as well as other excellent traditions full of deep meaning that give weddings a special national flavor. Kazaks continue these traditions today and manage to combine both national rituals and modern day trends in their wedding celebrations. The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty, as one of the best wedding venues in Kazakhstan, is offering future brides and grooms a wonderful journey into the world of wedding fashion at a premium bridal fair organized within the luxury hotel.
Now into its third year, the L’Officiel Bridal Fair 2017 exhibition will be held on March 12, gathering together experts and professionals who create weddings at the highest level. The event is hosted by The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty and First Media Group, in partnership with the oldest existing French fashion title L’Officiel Kazakhstan and the leading company in the creation of unique décor and atmosphere, Extravaganza, with technical assistance from Alt Sound and the Dream Maker design and printing studio.
