Bring Tradition Into Your Bridal Look

Something Old, Something New:
Bringing Tradition Into Your Bridal Look

Whether you’re of Eastern European, African, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, or Irish heritage, or a combination of many backgrounds, if you’re looking to incorporate tradition into your wedding look, brides today have more options than ever before.

While some religions like are very strict when it comes to bridal wear, you can still bend the rules and honor tradition. All it takes is a little creativity…and research.

Michelle, a Chinese bride, decided to add a modern spin to her wedding by wearing red and gold crystal hairpins to match her ceremonial red bridal dress.

“I knew I wanted to incorporate the colors from the tartan kilt my fiancé was wearing,” said Jennifer, a Scottish bride, “so I used blue and green flowers along with those colors in my tiara.” Catherine, a Spanish bride, wanted to remember her heritage by wearing a tiara with colored stones to match the embroidery to her Flamenco-style gown. “I wanted a different twist on the white dress and veil thing.”

     Look at old magazines from your grandparent’s era for beading and accessory ideas. Add Art Deco beading to your tiara or the front of your dress, and match it with an antique beaded handbag from a flea market ...
