Later in the day I learned about this:

Baghdad car bomb kills 17 at wedding

A car bomb ripped through guests at a wedding party in southern Baghdad on Thursday, killing 17 people and wounding the bride and groom.

The blast erupted outside a photographer's studio in Abu Tchir, a mainly Shiite district surrounded by restive Sunni suburbs and agricultural small holdings on the southern outskirts of the war-torn Iraqi capital.

More than two dozen people were injured, the officials said.

Wedding Textiles in Asia
Korean weddings are traditionally held at the bride’s family home, and includes a ceremony that involves the couple bowing to each other and sipping wine to seal their commitment. After, the couple will take part in another ceremony called pyebaek, in which the newlyweds bow toward the groom’s parents and offer symbolic gifts, such as jujubes or chestnuts (symbolizing children). At the end, the parents will toss the jujubes and chestnuts back at the bride. While traditionally this ceremony has been reserved for the parents of the groom, today couples are increasingly including the bride’s family as well.

In Korea, a marriage is such a special ceremony and celebration that common people could wear special attire for it that was exclusively worn in the palace, such as the ensemble worn by the woman above on the left. Garments like these were worn as everyday attire by a queen and as vestments by court ladies in the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910), but as wedding attire outside the palace. While some rented these suits from local administrators, some villages collectively owned outfits that villagers could share.

You can also find ceremonial clothing on view now in the galleries! In the Orientation Gallery, the three textiles on view from South Asia and Indonesia demonstrate the shawl-like textiles commonly used in those regions, in contrast to the robe silhouettes commonly used in China, Japan and Korea.
