The Great Indian Affair
Indian weddings are a whole other affair. They are larger than life and seem to go on forever! And the bride’s dress is just beyond imagination. Bold, bright red with lots of intricate embroidery and shiny crystal work, glittery lace and gold needlework, all makes the perfect Indian bridal dress. The wedding may be in the homeland itself or anywhere across the globe, but one thing remains constant..the Indian wedding apparel.
Arabic Wedding Dresses
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Dubai, UAE and the rest of the Muslim Middle East all celebrate an Arabic themed wedding. Amid steaming dishes of mandi, ojja and saffron rice and delicious desserts like Baklava and Kunafa, Arabic wedding dresses are also unique.
Long trailing gowns with detailed needle work, and long veils to go on top constitute ‘the dress’. It maybe in any color from plain white to azure blue, tea pink to sunny yellow. And of course there is the hijab that covers the bride’s head and neck. The ensemble is completed with heavy gold jewelry and smoky eye makeup.
Japanese Wedding Dresses
A traditional Japanese bride wears a simple white kimono, often accompanied with an ornate head piece as her wedding dress. The white symbolizes purity, and for some religious folks, virginity as well. The bride may change her white kimono for a bright red kimono after the ceremony because the red co lour symbolizes good luck.
Nigerian Wedding Dresses
A Nigerian bride wears a wedding dress of a bright color. Tangy orange, bright red, grassy green or sky blue, whatever the color may be, it is chosen to reflect happiness and celebration. The dress itself may be a skirt style or a traditional gown, and is accompanied with an adorned headpiece called Gele.
Chinese Wedding Dresses
Chinese wedding apparel consists of a bright red kimono often decorated with patterns in various other colors. The red shade symbolizes good luck according to the Chinese culture. The wedding dress is accessorized with a large and heavy head piece which is also in red.
Scottish Wedding Dresses
In a traditional Scottish wedding, the bridegroom wears a kilt in the colors and pattern that represent his family, or more accurately, his clan. The colors of the clan are worn and displayed proudly during the ceremony. The bride wears a white dress much the same as in a western wedding, except for one thing…The white gown is accessorized with a plaid of the clan’s colors. She may wear her own clan’s colors, or her soon to be husband’s, to symbolize the harmonious unity of the two clans.
