A wedding day not only offers a bride the celebration of marriage and the beginning of her future with her beloved, but also serves as a chance to illustrate, through her sartorial choices, who she is to her closest family and friends. A decision which will remain with her in happy memories — and later in the well-thumbed photo album — forever and ever.

Usually, it centres around a white floor-length dress, sometimes dressed up in lace or tulle, then completed with a veil, a bouquet and a seemingly sensible sandal.
