Libyan traditional weddings are usually not mixed where men and women celebrate separately. Weddings in the past traditionally lasted 7 days but recently and specially due to the financial crisis in the country, it was shortened to one to three days depending on the family. The main party is usually hosted in a wedding hall for the women. On the other hand, the men's party was never as exciting and eventful as the ladies. Traditionally, the men's side of the celebration consisted of one or two days that are hosted by the family for either a lunch or dinner meal where the whole neighbourhood along with relatives and friends are invited. Apart from that, the rest of the days normally consist of tea nights and on the final day, a "Zukra" (male group that play on different traditional instruments) is brought to the neighbourhood for entertainment. I documented some of the weddings that took place in my neighbourhood to show what goes on behind a Libyan wedding tent.
