This is the car they arrived in - it has ribbons and flowers on it, but they are not showing well in this photo.
This beautiful little girl appeared to be one of the relatives.
There were 6 young women friends who walked slowly in front of the bride and groom and had a special dance they did to music while they waved these cloths. I had been to one of their homes the day before, and the young woman was having her nails done by one of the men who walk around the cartiers clicking noise-makers together to advertise that they are in the neighborhood looking for customers. These dresses were so pretty and modest and we have seen the young women wearing them to church since then. Many times the dresses worn are more like prom dresses - very fancy (like at home!).
