Japanese Bridal Kimonos


This week's Photo Friday post on my blog, Trekking with Becky, is about Japanese bridal kimonos.  I've been asked often growing up what Japanese brides wear, and of course, they're not interested in hearing about the western style wedding dress.  However, they're horrified to hear that they usually change into a hideous, ridiculous cupcake dress afterwards.

Anyway, I was lucky to come across two Japanese couples who were having their traditional Japanese wedding portraits taken in Okayama's famous Korakuen.  I was also lucky to have the opportunity to just put the outside layer of wedding kimonos on for quick pictures when I went to see the most amazing Hina Matsuri doll display a few years ago.

    I've been curious about Korean, Japanese, and Chinese traditional wedding attire for a while now.
