I love it when people use traditional costumes for a wedding. They are gorgeous. In most cultures, some brides and grooms use folk clothes for the wedding ceremony, even these days.

Today, many brides around the world choose wedding dresses with the folk motifs of their countries (or the countries of their grooms) instead of the ordinary white wedding dresses. In Asia, the percentage of brides who prefer the folklore costumes is especially high.

We offer you several photos and an article on this topic: Gorgeous wedding dresses in Asia with folk motifs (http://nationalclothing.org/171-gorgeou ... otifs.html).

Norwegian bunad as a wedding dress. The headgear is extraordinary – it is large crown-shaped headdress, very ornate, and tied under the chin with a red ribbon.
