Emerald Green Bride: An Afghan Tradition

Emerald Green Bride Dress

The color emerald green is a captivating hue that carries different purposes across various pats of the world – love and purity being some of the meanings. When it comes to Afghan tradition, emerald green is the official color a bride wears to symbolize prosperity and paradise for the day-time religious ceremony and then transitions to a white dress for the next part of the ceremony.

This stunning shoot was created to show just how beautiful this color looks on brides and that white dresses are not always the ultimate symbol of a wedding. Aside from the stunning attire, the decor, florals, and stationary were just as vivid and colorful.

This stunning gown featured gold embroidery covering the entire torso as well as on the sleeves and bottoms of the pants. A beautiful train which attached at the waistline added style and elegance

The florals were simply amazing with vivid hues of magenta, crimson and orange. The tablescape was decorated with gold candlesticks filled will deep, dark tapered candles that were placed atop an emerald green runner with a matching floral centerpiece.
