Chinese wedding gown

A few houses next to my office is a Chinese wedding outfitter. I walk past the windows almost every day and it is interesting to see that a lot of Chinese women go there every day and try on the different gowns.

As in my previous post – the typical colour for a Chinese wedding is red. So no wonder that the wedding windows are decorated in red.

Not just one but they often purchase two or three – as they will need to change their gown during the day. Ideally the bride should wear a different gown at her in-laws to be than when visiting her parents (to signify the travel between the two houses, which could take days if the villages were apart).

The red wedding dress includes everything from a hair decorations over shoes to even a handbag – so you could dress up from head to toe, if you wanted to!
