In some regions, the bride's opinion is taken into consideration while preparing the contents of the bundle, while in some regions, the contents of the bundle are prepared entirely at the initiative of the groom's side. However, if you ask us, it is very important to get the bride's opinion while making this preparation. (You will agree with us when you see the gifts that should be in the bundle).

What's in the Bride's Bundle?

It is one of the most important Turkish customs for the male party to come to the engagement ceremony with their hands full. The groom's relatives who come to the engagement give the bride the gifts to be presented in the bride's bundle one by one. The bundle sometimes consists of 3, sometimes 7-8 packages. You can even see that this number increases depending on the way the bundle is presented. However, there are some products that we call the fixtures of the bridal bundle, so to speak, which are indispensable. We have prepared a list for those who wonder the answer to the question of what happens in the bridal bundle:

  • Bridal nightgown and pajama set,
  • Bridal slippers,
  • Dowry bath set,
  • Makeup kit
  • Underwear set,
  • Perfume,
  • Engagement dress,
  • Shoes,
  • Mevlit cloth and cheesecloth,
  • Loofah and booties. (A must for the bridal bundle, especially in Anatolia).

(The contents of these products can of course vary within themselves. So actually, the answer to the question of what happens in the bridal bundle can change). Now, let's discuss these products in your carefully prepared bridal bundle. Then let's talk about the things that can be gifted to you different from these products.

Nightgown and Pajama Set

We have stated that it would be much better for the bride to express her ideas in the bundle shopping. The reason for this is; In terms of being able to use the gifts that will come in the bride's bundle, it is of course very important to buy the things she wants and likes. Therefore, you need to have enough information to make a choice before the big day arrives.

Especially when choosing a nightgown and pajama set, you should make your choice according to your own criteria. You can buy the nightgown as a set or you have the chance to buy it in separate pieces. The nightgown set in the bridal bundle is usually chosen in white to match the wedding dress and to symbolize a clean and happy future. However, you do not necessarily have to buy a white colored set. You can also get a set in a different color if you wish. The main issue you should pay attention to in this regard is the fabric and texture of the nightgown. In this regard, you can choose cotton, silk or satin. The male side will leave this choice to you.

However, it is useful to make sure that the products you choose are compatible with each other when looking at the whole. Generally, if the nightgown, pajamas and underwear choices are compatible with each other, it may be better for you in terms of both usage and harmony. You do not have to make your pajama set choice in the same color as the nightgown. You can choose the nightgown as a more fancy, and the pajama set as a more cotton structure and a more comfortable cut.

Bridal Slippers

Perhaps you should think a little more than necessary when choosing bridal slippers, one of the most familiar products of bridal bundles. Is the visuality, comfort or brand of this slipper important for you? First of all, you should make a decision on this issue. Especially when it comes to bridal slippers, people think of a very high heeled and overly fancy style slippers. However, bridal slippers models of some brands are quite comfortable and have designs that are appreciated. As in nightgown sets, white color is often preferred in this product, but you can also determine your preference according to your skin color or the color of the nightgown you choose. Although you don't necessarily have to choose slippers with feathers or stones; there are also many slippers models that make your work much easier and give importance to your comfort.

Makeup Kit

Are you wondering where the term "new bride" comes from? Take a trip down memory lane to recall the new brides you have seen from the past to the present. Don't most of the brides you know present a very well-groomed, smiling profile, wearing new clothes, wearing make-up, being the most stylish at every event they go to, and paying attention to jewelry and jewelry? Here are these products used by the bride-to-be after the engagement; they are given as gifts in the engagement bundle. One of these gifts is the make-up materials that the bride-to-be loves to use.

Make-up materials are one of the most important products that should be asked to the bride and her opinion should be taken while preparing the bundle. Women generally prefer to use the make-up materials of the brands they are used to and are happy to use. Therefore, if you go and buy a different product; both the expectations of the bride-to-be will be in vain, and money will be spent in vain on a product that she will not use. If desired, you can buy different make-up materials one by one and make a set, or you can complete this shopping by buying make-up sets offered by brands.

Roughly speaking, the makeup materials that should be in the bridal bundle can be listed as foundation, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara, blush, powder. Of course, this list goes on and on. However, before we finish this article, we will touch on this topic again when we talk about the extra gifts that can be found in the bridal bundle.

Hamam Set

Another product bought for brides to use after marriage is a bath set. The bath set includes a bathrobe set and other products that can be used in the bathroom (water basin, bath slippers, bridal pouch, etc.). In the past, these products were available in copper or silver, but nowadays there are more useful products that you can find at a more affordable price. The bathrobe set can be bought only for the bride or as a family bathrobe set. (The family bathrobe set includes both the bride's and the groom's bathrobes, bath and hand and face towels and bath slippers).


Perhaps one of the most striking items in the bundle and the one that you should like the most is the underwear. Remember that you have a lot of options in this regard. Dowry stores design many different underwear models that can attract the attention of the bride-to-be. Just like nightgown models, satin, silk or cotton versions of underwear are waiting for you. You can also take a look at bridal sets. Underwear in these sets are sorted according to the purpose of use. You can buy lacy, ribboned, perhaps tulle underwear individually, or you can choose multiple underwear in a single set. The sets usually include panty types, bra types, undershirts, bralettes, bodsuits, babydolls, corsets and garter sets.


Optionally, a different scent or brand can be chosen from the perfume used by the bride. However, a nice gesture can be made by consulting the bride-to-be and buying a set of the perfume she is used to. The presence of stylish perfume bottles in the bridal bundle list will invite a visual feast.

Engagement Dress

Would the bridal bundle ever be without an engagement dress? The engagement dress is bought entirely depending on the bride's taste and desire and is presented to her in advance for her to wear that night.


A shoe to be bought in accordance with the engagement dress is given as a gift for the bride-to-be to wear at the engagement ceremony.

Fiber and Booties

In the bridal bundle, gifts are sometimes presented to the bride's mother and sisters, if any. At the beginning of these gifts are souvenir cheesecloths, washcloths and booties. For this reason, fiber and booties models prepared with different threads are abundant in bridal bundles.

Extras in the Bridal Bundle

Yes, we called the title of this article extras because you may not see the things we will talk about in this section in every bridal bundle list. The reason for this is that people prepare this bundle in accordance with both their customs and their financial possibilities. (Even the main products consisting of seven / eight pieces in a bundle require a certain budget.) Therefore, most of the products we will talk about now are included in the bundle optionally.

Things that may be extra in the bridal bundle include evening dresses that the bride can wear, shoes, clothes that she can use daily, lacy hand and face towels, epilation device, hair straightener, scented soaps, personal care products, comb and mirror set, bed linen set, socks, fruit basket and dessert to be served to the guests at the engagement. Apart from these, the groom's side can also include jewelry in the bundle according to their financial situation and the possibilities they have. In addition, more special and various make-up materials can also be presented to the bride as a separate bundle. In short, there is no limit to what can be put in the bridal bundle!
