Can someone please explain what the symbolism of the "shawls" all the men are wearing? They look very similar to Talit.

Robby its a Traditional Scarf with symbolic designs related to Gaza or Hamas. Its rarely seen outside of Palestinian circles. Its not related to the item you mentioned.

Alfa mabruk aleyhum (a thousand blessings be upon them). May Allah (God) grant them all every happiness & a long life together. May Allah (God) grant them peace, stability and everything that they may wish from their marriage. May Allah make their path easy for them & shower them with His Blessings. @Robby: the scarves are the colours of the traditional Palestinian male headress (Shemagh or Keffiyeh) & have become synonymous with the Palestinian struggle. People all over the world wear them now.
