This wedding cake topper features the bride and groom figurines, Arabian style. I spied it recently when I was visiting a local sweets shop in Jeddah. The groom is wearing the formal white traditional headgear – the white scarf called ghuttra topped off with the round black band called Igal. He also wears the long white dress called Thobe worn by all men here in Saudi Arabia. The bride, however, looks like any other typical bride from America, wearing the white wedding dress and veil. At some Saudi weddings I have attended, the brides have worn gowns of different colors other than white. The price tag indicates that this figurine piece costs SAR 100, which is about $25 US.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
