Those of us, who love to travel, enjoy deeply learning about different cultures. About different people’s histories, traditions, music, cuisine. Also, about the way they dress, or used to dress.

There is no doubt, that if a travel-lover, encounters on one of his trips, a traditional local wedding, will stay for as long as he or she can. We know we would.

In moments of celebration, you can learn a lot about a land’s inhabitants. Not just what they eat, drink and dance too. But how they look when they are happy. What makes them happy. How they express that happiness and joy.

Today, in the western world, what the bride and groom wear at their wedding, is pretty much set. An ivory gown and a nice tux. And while there is really nothing wrong about that, there is a different allure, to let’s say a Scottish kilt, a Japanese kimono or a Indian crimson-colored saris.

We have made a list, bellow, about different traditional wedding costumes from around the world. One can appreciate the vast differences between the final results. And the allure that local dress codes from around the world present.

So take a trip with us, around the world with these 18 of traditional wedding attires.
