First, I’d like to thank you all for your lovely comments on yesterday’s post! You made my day… As for the style, well I felt like experimenting a bit as I had been advised many times by people (who will recognize themselves :P) I wish I had more time to do so more often… In all cases, I had to go to this wedding, and got to observe the attendees, and that was my report about it! Lebanese weddings are special! Not to mention the zaffeh creativity (hawaiian zaffeh, mexican zaffeh…) the who-spends-more-on-their-wedding competition, etc. I hope I’ll have time to get in more details into this issue soon. Until then, have a lovely day :)

  4. Moe Says:

    Honestly Lebanese girls in general are so shallow, and they do it simply because they are: Soit belle et tait toi.
    Am not sure if I lost my French, lol
    Great post by the way

    I Hate “Lebanese girls are so shallow” pfff… ma2ele jlede argue :D

    Anyway, back to the illustration :D I loved it, w way to go w be urself.

  7. Luke Says:

    no way! I’m actually put off by women who go all out. It is intimidating and scary! Then again I’ve never been judged by what I wear nor have I been in a fashion contest I can imagine it can get pretty intense especially if you have nothing else to do! *cough*Housewife*cough*

  8. david Says:

    nice post! and you forgot the “matrix zaffeh”! you should draw it…

  9. Bilal Says:

    hahaha nice one, I actually went to my cousin’s wedding wearing a jeans and a t-shirt, and never felt bad at all… I only wore a suit twice in my life, on my graduation and on my wedding, and hope I never wear one again…

  10. Ekios Says:

    This is just exellent, the perfect caricature of what’s going on in a lebanese mariage !!

    Just to mention, I recognize a certain birthday too in certains pictures … ;)

    Ah ah, i’m mean … ;)

  11. Xena Says:

    This illustration says it all Maya! you did the right thing. i wish all lebanese women will follow ur steps when attending a wedding. people tend to forget the main AIM behind a wedding :). Some women look real scary and witch-like in weddings. no more simplicity in this society. It is good we have people like you. Since you were in your skin, i bet you turned heads more than others who spent hours Decorating themselves lol.
    Good day

  12. Liliane Says:

    I love the new style! keep at it!
    as for the subject, you know my exact opinion!

  13. SARA Says:

    ok, ok be yourself, no problem with that, but going to a wedding like you would go to work or to a dekkeneh? come on, to each place its own garnment.

  14. SARA Says:

    and to the “lebanese girls are the so shallow” dude: Lebanese girls are very intelligent persons who happen to look beautiful as well. so get over it.

  15. Paola Says:

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I LOVE how you draw the girls!!!! C’est tellement ça!!! Such huge layers of foundation, all boobs out and 30 kg dresses… Who’s ever gonna tell these girls they’d be so much prettier without all of that? Think Coco Chanel ladies…

  16. darinerachkidy Says:

    they wear, use, accessorize and do everything for one event…(glitter, powder, low / high cut dress, heels, …)
    this season must have hair extension……
    i can tolerate it for young women but for elderly.. i swear they look like pate a modeler…!!!!loool

  17. JOBOX Says:

    LOL so funny (il faut de tous pour faire un monde) Tante Souhaila is so elegant with that dress!! waw and her hair is a real jungle :O)

  18. Wissam M Says:

    Mouahaha Kimberley w Tante Souhayla! where do you come up with that? :)
    anyhow, totally agree with you, there is so much shallowness and so much spending on these wedding, we could build a new subway just with the money spent :)))

  19. Mira Says:

    LOL! love it!
    im looking forward for other posts on this issue.
    Anw i think u should have made a little effort concerning the hair and the make up ;)

  20. Fadi Says:

    Man, looking like this should be made illegal! A Lebanese wedding resembles an International Clown Reunion…and some of them are really scary.

  21. nahil Says:

    comme tu es belle…merci tante souhayla

    hahahaha thats the best part :D had to c it again b4 class :P made me laugh

  22. mc Says:

    Hello Maya

    May be Kimberley, Sandra, Souhayla and Mounir come from the UFO’s you saw over dbahieh :))

    Maya it’s great to be so simple, so true….. and not only during a wedding!!!

    I can see it in your blog, that I follow, without leaving usually any comment!

  23. Thierry B. Says:

    Merci Maya, celui-là est excellent !!!
    Tes dessins me rappellent des élèves libanaises qui “se sont fait belles” pour le bal de la promo. Certaines étaient tout à fait méconnaissables et faisaient même peur ! Je crois que je vais leur envoyer ce post pour voir si elles ont de l’humour…

    I wish it was limited to weddings. Simplicity & Lebanese became opposites.
