"Golden Pine" Woman's Wedding Kimono

This elegant uchikake wedding kimono is a cream and gold color combination that makes it perfect for an Asian accent at a western-style wedding. Imagine the time and skill it took to create dozens of large-scale pine boughts with hand-stitched embroidery.

Look closely and you'll realized that several different designs fill the centers of each pine bough. Fluffy cloud shapes behind the pine are made from gold and silver leaf. Red, green, and orange accent colors add a subtle bit of color on each bough. Pine is a symbol of endurance and longevity and often appears on bridal attire.

There are several types of Japanese wedding kimono (uchikake, kakeshita, shiromuku), but the uchikake is the heaviest and most colorful. It is meant to be worn on top of the kakeshita wedding kimono, and is not meant to be tied with an obi. Rather, it is draped over the shoulders and worn mostly for picture taking. These make amazing displays.
