Dating wedding dresses
In some traditions brides may wear more than one outfit, this is true for example in Japan, parts of India, and, archaically, in parts of the Arab world.
Particular styles of jewelry are often associated with bridal wear, for example wedding rings in most Western cultures, or chura (red and white bangles) in Punjabi Sikh culture.
Today, Western brides frequently wear white, cream, or ivory dresses for any number of marriages; the color of the dress is not a comment on the bride's sexual history.
In Western countries, a bride may wear "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue"; a bridal purse (or money bag) is also common.
Hindu brides are presented with a mangalsutra during the wedding ceremony, which has much of the same significance as a wedding ring in other parts of the world.
Wedding jewellery has traditionally been used to demonstrate the value of the bride's dowry.
Lady Gaga was spotted in Toronto, Canada, checking out what appeared to be wedding dresses on Monday and was joined by her mother, suggesting a potential engagement to boyfriend Taylor Kinney Lady Gaga is as always a league of her own when it comes to fashion and trends, but every now again she wears something even us mere mortals can lust after.
Rocking the ultimate Summer cover up of the moment, Gaga stepped out in New York in a white tuxedo jacket with black collar detailing, a great addition to your wardrobe and a perfect antidote to a sombre black blazer more suitable for Winter.
