Different countries have different wedding costumes and they have various preferences of wedding dresses too. Some people, especially those brides-to-be have great interests in this area, and they really want to know as much as possible. Here we can have a brief and quick look together.
There are many colors of wedding-themed clothing and almost every bride-to-be can choose the one she likes best. However, sometimes the geographic factors can also influence which color brides choose. New couples from Africa prefer blue wedding dresses. African new couples don’t wear modern formal dresses all the time during their wedding ceremonies. In the past days, brides choose to wear traditional dresses of their ethnicities and they seldom wear wedding dresses even they hold their weddings in churches. But in recent years, fashion magazines and many fashion TV programs are becoming more and more popular in Africa and the local people start to pay attention to their wedding formal gowns. As a result, more and more African young people choose to wear modern wedding clothes on their big days. Those western new couples usually choose white dresses for brides. But African brides prefer the blue ones. Pink is also very popular here. They also don’t wear their wedding clothing all the time during their wedding ceremonies. Mostly, they just wear them for a while at the beginning of the big event. Traditional clothing is still popular now.
In many countries, people like to take wedding photos. But in Europe, people seldom take wedding photos as they believe that doing like this would bring bad luck. They have a traditional belief which says that if the groom sees his bride wearing wedding clothing before the wedding ceremony, then their marriage must be unlucky.
Eastern people like to hang their wedding photos in their rooms or make elegant albums. They also like to invite their relatives or friends to look at their wedding photos when they came to visit. But European people pay less attention to their wedding photos. Of course they can show their photos, but after the honey moon, they would put their photos away and seldom take them out again. They have not as much enthusiasm of their wedding photos as eastern people do.
If we want to talk about the eastern wedding custom, then Japan can be a perfect example. If you can spend a little time in learning the Japanese wedding customs, you will find that Japanese people have fabulous enthusiasm in taking wedding photos. People, no matter they are poor or rich, always like to spend a large amount of money to take their wedding photos.
How do you feel now? Wedding is special because it can be regarded as the symbol of love. Also, it can be the different indicator of different cultures.
