Jennifer Aydin Celebrates Her Brother's Engagement in Turkey

These are exciting times for Jennifer Aydin's family. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom's brother Michael married his bride, Melda, on Sunday, August 25.

Jennifer and her five children have been in Istanbul, Turkey over the past week to celebrate her brother's nuptials (you can relive Michael and Melda's engagement party in Turkey last season of RHONJ, above). Unfortunately, Jennifer's husband, Dr. Bill Aydin, had to stay home in the Garden State to tend to his plastic surgery patients.

During the family-filled week, Jennifer attended Melda's bachelorette party, complete with some beautiful belly dancers, and was a part of traditions like the Syrian Orthodox Church's breaking of the bread and Michael and Melda's civil ceremony.

Even though there was some drama surrounding this wedding for Jennifer and the RHONJ crew last season, she definitely wasn't going to let anyone rain on her brother and sister-in-law's parade.
