Timeless Japanese Bridal Style
This East meets West inspiration is full of Japanese bridal style and I'm in love with the traditional fashion combined with modern and contemporary florals. This floral umbrella?! So couture it hurts. In a day of sleek dress designs reigning queen, this traditional Eastern look is a refreshing take on the modern day contemporary celebration—from the dress to the epic blooms to the traditional tea serving. Take a peek below for more and let us know, how much do you love this look?
From photographer Allen Tsai: "For this bridal inspiration, our bride wore a custom made Shiromuku, a traditional Japanese all white Kimono that is worn by Japanese brides. The Japanese regard white as a sacred color and while also resembling pureness, just like Western brides, it’s been the chosen color for Japanese brides as well. For the bridal look, we kept with the traditional Japanese hairstyle but added some modern bridal hair pieces from Le Bonheur Design. Angelica Fleurs infused organic floral designs into traditional Japanese elements including the Japanese style bridal bouquet and bridal floral parasol. Western calligraphy with the traditional Japanese illustrations by November letters created the perfect fusion stationery. For the tea ceremony inspiration we chose a more colorful floral kimono to match the tones of the traditional desserts known as wagashi, which is often paired with Japanese tea. We also added earrings and removed the comb for a slightly more casual bridal look. We’re really passionate about this east meets west inspiration and hope you love it too!"
