Unlike American brides who come to the wedding venue together with their grooms, Somali brides come to the reception hall first. The bride and her wedding party (her mother, sisters, female friends and relatives) enters the reception venue and the bride takes her seat facing the guest tables. After a few hours, the groom and his groomsmen arrive. He sits next to his bride and the feast begins.
