Wedding ceremonies of the Crimean Tatars

Today in the program we will witness an ancient national rite of the Crimean Tatars called «Henna konma hedzhesi», which means «evening of henna staining».  Well, that would be quite clear - this is a bachelorette party before the garden.  This ancient rite belongs to the marriage tradition.  The henna evening is traditionally held especially for the bride.  As you already understood, only women are allowed to participate in this ceremony.  But, seeing our sincere interest and love for folk customs, the ladies invited the film crew that evening.  What wedding traditions do these people have?  Let's find out as much more about this topic.
