I’ve seen chinese, western, and indian traditional wedding dresses. The Indian dress is by far the heaviest/complicated. I’ve heard a friend getting married with a 7kg veil covering her head and body, not including heavy gold jewelries. I wonder what other traditional wedding dresses are complicated to wear/heavy with ornaments? The Japanese kimono wedding dress seems complicated to me as well, but I have never seen it in person.

probaby the princess ball gown… especially those extreme ones that travellers wear.

@rosworms: I would disagree (unless like you say the ones the travellers wear) I have a princess ballgown and love it because it is so light to wear. Some of the other dresses I tried on (and there were a lot) were hard to sit down in, heavy material etc. The ballgown was light and airy and easy to move in. Perfect.

@skyeatnight: same reasons I love my ballgown… big and poofy soft and airy =) like wearing a cloud.
The travellers dresses look heavy and as they have said “hard to get in and out of doorways and cars”… my vote goes to their dresses.

I think the Japanese wedding dresses are quite heavy with the ornaments, wig and the fabrics it self. I know back in the days a traditional geisha has like 12 layers of fabric and the colourful kimono is more used as a formal garment. … Imagine a Japanese wedding kimono… :S

@HappilyEverAfter54: They never look very glamourous (like the princesses they want to seem like) wearing those dresses! It makes me laugh every time seeing them be pushed and pulled into carriages and doors.
Don’t even get my started on them walking down the aisle! Its so funny!!!

I lived in Japan over the summers as a child because my dad lived there for several years. He bought 2 traditional wedding kimono’s and they are so beautiful! THey are quite heavy just because of how ornate the fabrics are. But I would definitely say the traveller’s ball gowns are MUCH more difficult than a Japanese kimono.

@Becki_91: I’ve noticed that too! They don’t even walk down the aisle nicely, the bridesmaid’s like all go up together and then the bride comes down talking and such!
I agree that the travellers gowns look complicated, like lots of fabric and a giant hoop.

@Lauren10.8.11: I love that their fathers can never seemingly walk next to them, instead infront pulling, behind pushing or sort of crushed into the side of the asile between that and the mass of fabric, hehe.

Sounds interesting! I may focus more attention on traveller’s ball gowns
