Tiffany’s Wedding Week: Mikvah Party

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.
