VINTAGE WEDDING KIMONO
Here you'll find the three most common styles of bridal kimono:
uchikake - brighter, heavier, with a thickly padded hem; these are not meant to be belted,
kakeshita - colorful but lighter weight with a thinner padding at the hem; these can be worn with an obi
shiromuku - white on white jacquard, usually worn for Shinto wedding ceremonies.
We sometimes get antique or very vintage wedding kimono, which feature softer colors and smaller imagery, but most of these are contemporary (circa 1960-80) and are likely to be former rental kimono (since buying one is usually out of the question financially)!
