16 Traditional Wedding Outfits From Around The World

See how different cultures celebrate their big day around the world!

Whether I’m a guest or a groomsman, I really enjoy going to weddings! I get to dress up, dance, and best of all support a friend. I’m not a huge crier, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. The first dance gets me every time!

In western culture, a bride typically wears white and a groom wears black on their wedding day. This is not the tradition everywhere! I have personally attended an Indian wedding where the bride and groom both wore these detailed red outfits that were incredibly unique and beautiful. That wedding sparked my interest in how other cultures dress their brides and grooms. Let’s take a trip around the world and find out!

Japan

In Japanese culture, the bride traditionally wears a silk hood called a tsunokakushi. The tsunokakushi represents humility and modesty. Looking sharp, you two!
