Wedding dresses

Orthodox wedding ceremony - a mysterious and solemn ceremony. At this moment, the souls of lovers are united before God. The ceremony is held in the church, so wedding dresses should look appropriate. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with all the photos!

How to choose a wedding dress

Future brides are advised to give preference to modest wedding dresses. There are several rules that you must follow when choosing an image.

  • In the temple, the head must be covered with a veil, stole or elegant lace scarf.
  • Richly decorated with beads, rhinestones, stones, the dress will look inappropriate. But delicate lace and beautiful embroidery emphasize the femininity and beauty of the bride.
  • An outfit with sleeves is best. If you do not like such dresses, and two options are too expensive - take care of purchasing a bolero, jacket or cape. Remember that open shoulders or backs are not suitable for the church..
  • The fabric should be light shades, but there are no restrictions on the material.
  • Skirt above the knee and a deep neckline - a bad tone during the sacrament.
  • A dress with a train is suitable for a Catholic wedding, but not for an Orthodox one. If you like these models, you should buy the one where it comes unfastened.
  • In choosing makeup, the bride should focus on naturalness - no bright blush, lipsticks and dark shadows. The most simple and neat hairstyle is ideal for the ceremony.
