Lavish, beautiful and ethereal is the Tunisian bride when she wears the Gold and silver Jelwa during the Nzoul. An ancient tradition, the Nzoul marks the ‘first sight’ of the bride by the groom and vice versa. Even when the world is now modernized and the bride and groom meet each other before the wedding is set, the Nzoul tradition still continues for the sentimental value it holds. Covered overall in gold, the bride spins slowly and gracefully as she reveals her face to her future husband. 

The seraphic dress that the Tunisian brides wear during this ceremony in Tunisian weddings is heavily embroidered with gold and silver threads, sometimes even has real gold embellishments, and is made of ornament fabrics like velvet.

The vest sparkles in light as the bride spins, showing not only the opulence of the families but also the bounty of the beauty in the angelic bride. The clothing is typically a traditional Tunisian costume, but can be seen worn even by the modern world. Often, the shoulder padding of the vest will lead to the illusion that the bride is, in fact, wearing something shaped like a square. While all perspectives are welcomed, we do wonder

how the Tunisian brides spin and walk in this heavy, angelic attire!

Equally mesmerising is the Potloi dress of Indian Manipuri brides!
