    Before the big day on the 12th of March, wedding festivities for Princess Iman of Jordan have already commenced at the palace.
    Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan hosted a henna party for the bride-to-be at the palace, alongside Rajwa Al Saif, fiancé of Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah.

    The mother of the bride and Queen of Jordan shared a glimpse of the warm celebrations at the palace through Instagram, giving the loyal followers an insight into the royal wedding. “We took care of the bride and showered her with love, and with all the family, our joy was completed with the night of Henna. So much love in one room! With friends and family at Iman’s Henna party yesterday,” the Queen of Jordan expressed. For the henna party, Queen Rania Rajwa Al Saif wore traditional pink ensembles with complementing jewellery, keeping it minimal and chic for the pre-wedding event.
    Going for an understated yet impactful look, the bride wore an all-white, intricately embroidered traditional full-length dress by Jordanian-Palestinian designer Reema Dahbour. Sharing her excitement on this collaboration, the designer commented,“It’s a moment of pride as a Jordanian fashion designer, I am deeply honored to see our piece on Princess Iman on such a special day. Congratulations to our royal family!”
    Adding a hint of nostalgia to this special event through her sartorial elegance—Queen Rania added a white and gold Bruce Oldfield belt to Princess Iman’s elegant outfit. The belt owned by the Queen herself, was last seen at her own royal wedding with King Abdullah II in 1993.
