Moroccan Wedding

Honestly, Lauren and I are obsessed with almost everything Moroccan.  Take for instance, these stunning Moroccan wedding blankets which Lauren first saw years ago at the Parker Palm Springs.  The blankets are hand woven often by a female family member weeks before a wedding ceremony for the Moroccan bride, infusing the blanket with blessings of good fortune and fertility.  Upon completion of this hand loomed treasure, the nuptials are performed and the bride is draped in her blanket as she travels to her husband’s home.
