The bridal shower plays a major role in the Zambian tradition. The traditional Zambian bridal shower is called ‘Kitchen Parties’. It is always organized by the bride-to-be, her mother, and close female family members. Ladies are invited to contribute towards the building of a new bride’s kitchen. Assorted kitchenware and monetary gifts are presented to the bride-to-be. During this ceremony, the bride-to-be is also counseled on how to keep and maintain her home and marriage. The Zambian bridal shower is a complete traditional ceremony. The entire ceremony is packed with fun, laughter, dancing and various activities designed to enlighten the bride before the marriage starts. These pictures from Mary‘s bridal shower will give you a glimpse of what the Zambian bridal shower looks like. Enjoy!
