The Western World
White is the most common color for wedding dresses in the western world, but it wasn't always like this. During the 19th century, women were expected to wear the best dress they has in their closet, and in most cases, it was white.
Back in the days, the woman would wear their own wedding dress on several occasions after their wedding, as it became a fancy ball gown.
The Chechnyan bride is covered head to toe in her traditional white gown. The bride's dress emphasizes modesty and simplicity, and although there are many details on the dress, no bright colors will ever be used.
Here as well, Islam is practiced and is shown in the woman hijab.
The Tuvan region is part of the wild Russin landscape. A thick Sibirian hat decorates the groom's head, while the brides are traditionally covered in a red veil and a white dress.
The Tuvan region is located not far from the Tibetan area, and the wedding ceremony is influenced by that tradition.
In Tajikistan, the wedding dress is white. The wedding ceremony can be celebrated over a few days, and the clothes which are worn underneath the dress may be changed.
The bride can even wear a pair of trousers underneath the dress that covers them anyway.
