Somali weddings are big and plentiful, and even more so in the diaspora. A modern Somali wedding held in America or Europe may cost up to $500,000. And it’s understandable because it’s common for a wedding to last for 7 days – 7 days of celebrating, eating, drinking, dancing, singing, communicating, performing wedding rituals, etc. All this with chic and on a large scale. But except for huge wedding expenses, there are many other interesting things about Somali weddings.
