Bride and groom in Japan
While the Japanese wedding attire is quite different than what we’re familiar with, there’s one thing they share with us: the bride’s kimono is always white (sometimes pure white, and at times decorated with a splash of color). The color white, as in the Western culture, symbolizes purity and maidenhood.
The Kimono might be decorated with red and gold, colors that symbolize luck. The groom wears a Kimono as well, which is often black. To top off the festive Kimonos, the bride wears a traditional headpiece, and after the ceremony, she may change to a different Kimono, this time red or gold.
