Wedding courtesy around the world are different to one another. Other are too simple while other prefers to be extravagance. But in the end of the day what really important is, you couple had shared the loved and vows to one another that can really makes difference.

But of course, attending wedding must be well organized by following the dress code as for the religions or beliefs rules hence you wont be look so disrespectful to the ones tying the knot as you, yourself is an attendee.

Hence, you should check out on below’s details as you have a friends, a colleagues and even a family who are into different ethnicity that has differ way in celebrating love.

Once the excitement of receiving a wedding invitation has worn off, it’s time to start planning your outfit. Choosing a guest outfit for a wedding in the UK is hard enough, but what about if you’ve been invited to a wedding of a different culture? Together with Charles Tyrwhitt, retailers of timeless menswear, we look at how the dress code of a wedding changes depending on the background of the newlyweds.

What will the bride be wearing?

Brides are known in the UK for their flattering white dresses, accompanied by a long train and veil. But how do our own bridal traditions compare to India, Japan and China?

India

In India, the lady’s dress depends on the region of India that they’re from. In some regions, the bride wears a saree which is a garment that looks like a long drape, in others she wears a lehenga which is a long skirt. Often the bride is dressed in red or another vibrant colour, her garments will be carefully embroidered with an impressive design.

The bride and her bridal party often have henna on their palms, hands, forearms and legs.

Japan

Japanese weddings are very elaborate and it is acceptable for families to spend close to £75,000 on a wedding day. It is often the parents of the couple who organise the wedding, and they are willing to spend excessive amounts to save face. Because of the large scale of the weddings, the bride can have as many as 5 costume changes!

At a traditional (Shinto) wedding, the bride wears a white kimono, but more recently Japanese brides wear a dress that has a traditional print.

China

In China, it is likely that the bride will be dressed in red as it is considered a sign of good luck that can warn off evil spirits. In some regions, typically in northern China, the traditional attire for a bride is a one-piece dress that is embroidered with gold and silver designs. In southern China, the typical wear is a two-piece frock.

A bridal crown is part of the wedding costume for some brides too – it is worn for photography or for show at a grand occasion. For footwear, a special pair of shoes are often worn that are embroidered with a symbol — for example, a turtle or a deer which symbolises happiness and longevity.

In addition, the color of the dresses that both groom and bride should be wear off was color red. Because red symbolizes wealth and an eternity of love that the couple should keep till the end of time.

What will the groom be wearing?

The men often have traditional dress codes that they are expected to follow – however, many of them are opting for a smart suit similar to how a groom in the UK would dress.

India

Similar to the women, it depends on what region of India the groom is from as to what they wear. Some husbands-to-be wear traditional dress, such as a dhoti which is a rectangular cloth ties around the waist. In other regions, they wear a sherwani (a long coat), a kurta (loose falling shirt that hangs below the knee), or a Western suit.

The men also have henna on their bodies but it is less elaborate and often hidden.

Japan

Traditionally, a Japanese groom wears a wedding kimono for the ceremony and then changes into a tuxedo. The formal kimono that he wears is called a montsuki, and often displays the family crest. More recently, younger grooms start the ceremony in a tuxedo too.

China

In China, the husband-to-be traditionally wears a black silk coat over an embroidered robe. Often, in the modern day, the overcoat is not worn.

The groom has to wear certain headwear too – this is usually a black hat with a red tassel. Some younger generations are not following the traditional dress code and simply wear a tuxedo or a Western-style business suit.

What should the guests wear?

It can be difficult to choose an outfit as a guest, as there are many traditions and symbols that you may be unaware of and you don’t want to offend anyone.

India

At an Indian wedding, the bolder your outfit is the better. Wearing vibrant colours will mean you fit in with the Indian guests. Guests should avoid white or black as these are colours worn for funerals and mourning in India. It is also advised that red is not worn either as the bride will probably be dressed in this colour.

Women guests should not bare their shoulders, wear low cut tops or short skirts as this can be seen as disrespectful — a jewel-tone dress with a shawl is one appropriate outfit. The Indian female guests will most likely be dressed in colourful sarees or anarkali suits. Jewellery is important for women too, choose a statement piece for around your neck with matching earrings and bangles.

Men often wear a tailored kurta with a pyjama and a dupatta (shawl) can be added over the kurta. For their feet, sandals, jootis or chappals are often worn as these are comfortable and prevent overheating.

Guests might also be expected to cover their heads if the wedding is held in a temple. For this, women can wear a long scarf or pashmina over their heads and men are usually provided with a head cover such as a large handkerchief.

An Indian wedding is often a long drawn out event (it could be three days long!) so make sure you are wearing something loose and comfortable.

Japan

At a traditional Japanese wedding, men were expected to be dressed very formally with a black suit and white tie. Now however, the dress code is more flexible and it is accepted for men to come dressed in suits other than black with various coloured ties. However, it is advised to avoid white clothes with black ties.

Women often wear dresses that are knee length or a coloured kimono to take on a traditional look. It is best to avoid showing any shoulder as this can be deemed a disrespectful.

China

When dressing for a Chinese wedding, avoid wearing red as this can be seen as trying to steal the limelight from the bride. It’s best to wear pink, peach or purple as these are all symbols of new life and happiness. A formal dress is suitable for a Chinese wedding.

Colours to avoid include black and white, as these symbolise mourning and black is considered to be the colour of bad luck.

In the everlasting words of one Carrie Bradshaw, the godmother of style and fashion, “There are two things you can never have too many of; good friends and good shoes.” And she is right. We’re not here to talk to you about friends, though. We’re here to talk to you about all things shoes because they are just the most important thing when it comes to fashion, when it comes to style, and when it comes to the way you dress because shoes are who you are; they have the ability to change the way you walk, the way you move and thus the way you feel.

We’re not saying that a pair of gorgeous shoes can cure you of life’s miseries. But if you do let your head down, you will find it so much easier to smile again once you admire what’s on your feet.

Unfortunately, not everyone has the means to jump on every footwear trend the moment another fashion week comes to a close, which is why we have pulled together a list of essential shoe styles every girl needs to add to her closet. Read, take notes and adhere to our advice; do that and you will always have the perfect footwear no matter what the occasion.

  1. Beautiful But Basic Ballet Flats

Some of you may know what we’re talking about right off the bat, for others, it won’t click until we use their other moniker; Skimmer Flats. The reason these make the list is pretty simple: they are hassle-free, easy to stuff in your bag and a super way to get that polished look even when you are running thirty-something minutes late. Feminine, check. Casual, check. Yeah, these shoes can be worn with just about anything, from rolled-up jeans to pleated skirts, and that makes them nothing short of essential.

  1. Sneakers Go With Everything

That is why sneakers have gone from having an exclusivity deal with gym-goers and marathon runners to becoming a fashionista’s best friend. They just have a way of letting you own an outfit that little bit more, putting your stamp on even the strictest of getups. It could be a pantsuit that you rock, a midi skirt or even a denim dress with a long sleeved tee beneath it; a cute-slash-cool pair of sneakers is going to make it your own. Even just a jeans and striped tee day can become a mega-look with the right pair of sneakers. Converse, Janoski’s, Adidas Originals or Vans Classics – they are all epic choices to own.

  1. Sandals Should Never Be Dismissed

The spectrum for sandals is astonishing, and that is why they should never be overlooked. There is just something for everyone, no matter what your style, personality or lifestyle may entail. If you’re more about having a pair of sandals that you can just pull on to go from the shower to the beach and then to the bar, then you need to visit http://www.theiconic.com.au/ and grab a pair of Havaianas. If you want something that makes a bit more of a statement that your everyday flip-flops then you need to grab a pair of sandals that has fashion written all over them. We’re talking a splash of color, a studded finish and maybe even a high back with fancy strap. Sandals can take your style up a notch, there are no doubts about that.

  1. Ankle Boots

If 2016 is going to be remembered as the year we lost too many legends and too many people went bonkers for Pokemon Go then 2017 needs to be remembered as the year celebrities went truly nuts for the ankle boot. It could be that you go for an ankle boot that has some cute details, a neutral hue and a chunky heel, which is the kind of thing Mila Kunis would rock, or you could go down the Gwyneth Paltrow route and grab a pair ankle booties in bright red, the kind of thing that is so sumptuous they could be worn day or night, legs out or legs covered. They are fast becoming a girl’s best friend.

  1. The Timeless Black Pumps

If you are looking for an everyday shoe that works hard for you, gives your legs the kind of shape you always dreamed of and adds a little sex appeal to your look while consistently staying beneath the radar and in the realm of sophistication, then you need to grab a pair of black pumps, which is easier after reading this guide on http://thestylespy.com. You can head to the office, to a meeting, to lunch with a client, to drinks with friends and then to a date with that guy you crush on without once having to change your shoes. They are workhorses, and they are also sexy. What more is there to say.

Three Crucial Steps for Anti-Aging Success

October 6, 2017
By

Some people have no problem with the effects of aging and simply embrace the wrinkles and lines of time that come with living. But most people are determined not to show their age on the face. For this majority of people, good skincare and habits can make all the difference in how rapidly one appears to age.

Unfortunately, there is also a lot of bad information about aging, which leaves people feeling confused about their options. It turns out, however, that most of the important aspects of anti-aging success are actually quite simple and do not require complicated regimens, expensive creams, or extensive procedures. For most people, only three steps are necessary to keep the worst of aging at bay.

The first and most important aspect of an anti-aging regimen is wearing sunscreen. You should wear sunscreen every single day, even if you’re not planning on spending any time relaxing in the sun. Sun damage is the single most destructive element for your face, causing wrinkles, lines, dryness, hyperpigmentation, and rough skin texture. Wear at least 30 SPF every day and make sure to apply more sunscreen for every two hours that are spent in the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses for even better protection, and don’t forget to protect the rest of your body, especially your neck, decolletage, shoulders, and arms.

Next, look into using simple anti-aging formulas that moisturize. If you want an extra boost, add Vitamin C to your regimen. Moisturizing regularly, however, is absolutely essential to making your skin look healthy and firm every day. When you don’t moisturize, your skin will look dull and dry, and your wrinkles and lines will be much more apparent. You don’t need an expensive moisturizer to do the trick. In fact, some people use petroleum jelly with great success.

Finally, don’t be afraid to contact a professional dermatologist for the best results. Shop around and find a local professional who can help you look your best. For example, if you need advanced dermatology Colorado, look for a trusted practitioner like Colorado Skincare to meet your needs. A professional dermatologist can prescribe powerful anti-aging medications like retinol and can even perform laser surgery or other facial adjustments.

Don’t be afraid to fight the signs of aging by taking good care of your skin. It’s never too early to start caring about your appearance.

Leather Wallets For Millennials

October 3, 2017
By

Since humans could walk, they’ve needed places to put their things. The wallet, for men and women, can be traced back into centuries of history.

Past
Many artifacts have been found in history going back to our first steps including items we used to carry things. As early as 1500’s Europe there have been variations of a leather or animal-made folding device refereed to as what is translated as wallet. Even Shakespeare wrote about the wallet in his play “Troilus and Cressida.”

“Time hath, my lord, a wallet at his back, wherein he puts alms for oblivion, a great-sized monster of ingratitudes.”

Wallets were used in the 1800’s to carry tobacco. The leather packing and tight fold created a safe haven for the tobacco and a pouch easy to tuck away. The wallet was used for many practical uses until it became a fashion accessory.

Who can forget the one and only time the velcro wallet existed around the 1970’s? This style reflected a cheaper version of a necessary tool.

Current

Much like the watch that evolved with practical usage, the wallet doesn’t serve all the purposes it once did. In fact, the purse that holds the wallet now carries those miscellaneous items. While the leather wallet goes back to the Greeks, it will never go out of style. Wallets today are made from other materials such as plastic, washable materials, neon signs with messages, and are multi-patterned. Of course,the name of the designer gives most wallets their value over their actual material.

Some of the more modern examples of wallets can be found at manufactures such as www.ibricraft.com. Today, the leather wallet certainly carries on, though with more design and compartment options. While we are a society that uses less cash and more cards, the wallet reflects our changing society. Many wallets today are designed to reflect our personalities as much as performing the task of carrying our things.

Future

One can only imagine the future of the wallet. As our lives become more digital and on-line, the need for plastic and paper will grow less. But we’ll always have a need for a place to put our things that travel with us including our phones and digital devices.

The wallet has been around as long as humans have needed to carry things. They are as much a part of our history as paper, writing, and language.

Straight Strands Of Hair

September 7, 2017
By

Sometimes, you might not want to have curly hair. You might desire straight hair that is easy to manage and that allows you to do more with during the day. An option would be to spend some time in the morning after washing your hair drying it and using a hair straightener. Another option would be to use Straight Request hair care products. Hair products gently straighten the hair without a lot of damage from the heat of styling tools. You usually only need a small amount in order to get straight locks, which means that you’ll have plenty of the product available anytime it’s needed or desired.

There are a few ways that you can straighten the hair naturally as well. When you wash your hair, avoid using a hair dryer. Instead, brush your hair as it dries. This will straighten the strands, keeping them from curling as the hair dries. You can also pull sections of the hair so that they are straight, offering assistance to the process.

Another idea that you can try when the hair is wet is to divide it right down the center of the scalp. Comb the left section of hair to the right, wrapping it around the back of the head. Do this with the right side as well, pulling it to the left side of the head and securing it at the back. Wrap the hair in a towel or a scarf until it’s completely dry. You can also sleep with your hair like this. The pulling motion of the hair will help to get it straight. If you want straight hair in the morning, then put your hair in two ponytails. One should be a bit higher than the other. Sleep on your hair all night, removing the hair accessories in the morning for straight locks.

If you don’t want to keep your hair pulled back all the time, there are masks that you can make that will straighten the hair. One is made from a tablespoon of honey and a cup of whole milk. Apply the mixture to the hair before washing to relax the strands. Professional products will work in a similar fashion.
