Egyptian Wedding: Erin and Wael 3

In case you missed it, the wedding entrance that included flames and fireworks is here, while part 1 is here, and part 2 is here.

This wedding is smack full of exciting things. As you'll see in this particular entry there was lots of dancing, a belly dancer, a cake with sparklers, and just a lot of loving. 

The belly dancer is of course a highlight for me because it's the first time I've seen in person. I have yet to understand the significance of having a belly dancer in one's wedding, other than, ahem, entertainment. Does it symbolize anything? Is it meant to show that the groom is now so smitten with his bride that no amount of sexy dancing will make him leave her side? Am I overthinking? 

In any case, more pictures below!

There was a smoke machine, of course.

I knew they were nervous about this dance days before the wedding. But they nailed it.

Sadly I didn't know they were appetizers so I ate a lot. It was 11pm by then.

Had I know that there was a buffet to follow, I wouldn't have eaten so much.
