I hope someone takes you up on going to your wedding. We were in Egypt last September and were lucky enough to observe an Egyptian wedding in our hotel in Cairo. It was an unbelieveable site, and we were impressed with all the drummers, etc. Anyone going to Egypt in September, should try and go to this wedding.
Good Luck on your special day!

Thank-you, Masrawy! We are thinking of going to Egypt this September but are unsure of when. Where is your wedding going to be held and is it this year or next year?

Best wishes for a wonderful married life!

Thank u very much.

N.B: I'm a local guide in Cairo and always meet with travellers and make friendships with them, so I never thought of them as strangers, u r friends but from another part in our earth.
have a good day.

While in Egypt this past December we saw many wedding celebrations going on. There was a beautiful wedding going on in our hotel, the Helnan Shepherd the 2nd night after we arrived. As we were waiting for the elevator to take us to our room we were enjoying the merry making and a young man began to talk to us, he was the cousin of the bride and he invited us up to the Penthouse (or top floor of the hotel) to join the celebration. We told him we would come up a little later (the time now was about 10:00 p.m. and he said they would be partying until 4 or 5 a.m.) and after mulling it around for a bit we decided to join them. This was a beautiful and very large wedding with many people, we were taken into the banquet rooms and seated with the young mans family, don't you know they wondered who in the world we were but he introduced us, gave us a drink and took pics with us as well. We felt we were imposing so we only stayed for 45 minutes or so and then quitely excused ourselves to many hugs and kisses. This was one of MANY highlights of our trip to Egypt. We were treated so well by the Egyptian people, maybe it was due to the fact that we were not part of a tour group but by ourselves most of the time. I would have to say the people definitely made our trip.

Masrawy: What nice sentiments you express! Best wishes from California, U.S.A. on your upcoming nuptials.

Suspaul: Your story reminded me of the several times I have been invited to weddings around the globe - in American Samoa, Germany, Slovakia and Costa Rica.

It is a great way to meet people and learn their about their culture, customs, food, music, etc. What a cool story!
