Any couple that’s ever said “I do” knows that there are quite a few hoops and hurdles to overcome before you can walk down the aisle. We’re not talking about finding the love of your life. That’s the easy part. We’re talking about all of the logistical crap that puts your life on hold for a solid year before the big day – from venues to caterers to bands to guest lists, it can be pretty overwhelming. And the most important thing, as any bride will tell you, is her dress.
Yes, it’s white, it’s lacy, it’s frilly, it’s big. But in some places around the world, a bride who chooses to get married in a traditional ceremony will likely enjoy the calm of avoiding the nightmare of choosing a dress. We have a whole gallery of traditionally dressed brides and grooms from around the world on their big day. It just might make you want to forget your wedding plans and get up and go somewhere else for your special day. Yemen, anyone?
