Great Wedding Dresses from Kazakhstan

red wedding dressblue wedding dressThese 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.girl mosaic
