Turkish Henna Night

On May 24, 2014 Turkish Cultural Center Hartford held a traditional Turkish bridal shower, known as Kina Gecesi which translates to Turkish Henna Night for one of our Turkish Cooking Class student’s daughter who is newly married.

The Henna Night is one of the very common customs in Turkish culture practiced by brides often held one day before the wedding.

The evening kicked off with demonstration of bride and bridesmaid special performance of henna application onto the bride’s hand. The night continued with music and guests were served traditional turkish pastries and desserts.
