Drawings of White Kimono - Worn by Many Japanese Brides
Did you know that white wedding dresses in the West have only been common since the Victorian era? Before that, most women wore a dress of whatever color they liked. In Japan, however, there is a long history of white bridal kimonos.
The association of white and weddings dates as far back as the Heian period (794 CE to 1185 CE), and the custom of white bridal kimonos likely started sometime in the Muromachi period (1336 CE to 1573 CE).
There’s a gorgeous purity to white bridal kimonos that easily transfers to whatever character is wearing one. Small pops of color are used as well, such as gold embroidered patterns or red hems.
