They say that when you plan a party, you should stick to one theme, and this woman decided to make a statement about her favorite thing in the world. Flowers. She couldn’t just leave the flowers on the table and decided to decorate herself with all of her favorite ones.
The decorated dress has a nice touch, but is it too much? Nah… it’s not exactly “classy” to have flowers all over the dress, and it’s more traditional to hold them in your hands, but she looks happy, so she obviously doesn’t care what we think. And we don’t blame her. Se is beautiful no matter what she wears.
The Kahakas people live in one of the coldest places on earth; therefore, their wedding dress has to be designed accordingly. There is no room for lacy trails, no room for transparent skirts, and even the head must be covered with more than just a silky long veil.
Pure white or silver fabric is used, and the most important thing is, keeping the bride warm. The Yuta tent is a traditional form of habitat for that region, and historically, the natives were former herders who raised sheep and goats, which the dresses were made of. Planning on moving to Russia?
You probably wouldn't feel very comfortable walking down the aisle in this; with sleeves that puff out all the way to her wrists, it looks like she has to keep her arms in place. Actually, we have a feeling you wouldn't feel comfortable walking in this, no matter where you were.
For a brief moment, her hat caught our attention ( it looked very normal at first), but that only lasted a short while before we had to take another look at this monstrosity of a dress. It's aggressive, it's too thick, it has no elegance, and we find it hard to believe a bride ( or model) would feel comfortable in this. Next.
Purple is the color of royalty, and this bride knows it well. There was no way she was going to go with ordinary plain white, and when it was time for her big day, she had to go with something different. She doesn’t mind walking around in this heavy dress adorned with Swarovski crystals to let everyone know she’s royal and only the best will do.
One thing we must add is that this bride knew that even if she had worn the same dress in traditional white, there was no way no one would have noticed she was the bride.
A Different Wedding Dress
So why do the American and European gypsies dress so flashy and tacky for their weddings? If you have ever kept up with reality TV and watched episodes of "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding," you'll know it can be quite a materialistic culture. The more golden decorations and glittering adornments all around - the better. You can never have too many sparks.
Romanichal Gypsies marry at a very young age, which could definitely be why some of their wedding dress choices look more like prom dresses or belly dancers ones. Maybe if they were to marry in their 20s, the gown would look a little more modest. Then again, maybe not.
