These are traditional Kazakh wedding dresses one can buy at Tsum department store in Almaty, Kazakhstan. I don’t understand all the intricacies of the patterns and designs but I think they are very pretty. Usually brides nowadays use a western style wedding dress. It’s lovely to see the dresses that were used in earlier, happier years. The girl in mosaic below was taken from a place along the way to Charyn Canyon. I thought it was colorful and showed the traditional style which young, Kazakh girls used to wear.
