Before heading down the aisle most Jewish brides have the custom to go to the Mikvah.
A mikvah is a body of water where a woman purifies her self prior to getting married. A mikvah is also used to cleanse your body after your monthly cycle. You can read more about it here.
As a Sephardic Jew we take it one step further and have a Mikvah Party.
I also had my own mikvah party prior to getting married.
Tiffany’s mom, sisters, aunts and cousins.
After dipping in the Mikvah, Tiffany back out to her family and guests. We through candy and chocolate at her as a sign of a sweet future. Sarah was our special helper and picked up all the sweet treats.Living on the west coast I miss out a lot on family activates so it means a lot when I can participate in such special occasions.
