Wedding Dresses Ideas from South Asia:

Like Europe, Asia is also one of the biggest Continents of this world. When we talk about Asia then there is a long list of countries that includes in it such as India, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, China, Iran, Nepal etc. but the Continent of Asia is further divided into southern & eastern parts. When we only talk about the south Asian countries then the names of Afghanistan, India, Maldives, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal & Pakistan are remarkable.  These countries actually embody the southern areas of the Asian continent.

Today, I am going to talk about the South Asian bridal wear. So, my main concern is only about these 8 countries & the traditional bride attire from each country. In these countries mostly brides wear eastern style clothes on their wedding day. These clothes are usually decorated with heavy embroideries & laces. The usage of heavy jewelry is also very much common. Let’s start!
