Japanese wedding dress showcase blog (shameless plug!)


Ever since I posted about Luce boutique’s creations last year, I’ve been getting a lot of visits from people looking for modern Japanese bridal gowns so I put up a separate blog devoted to showcasing the creativity of Japan’s bridal fashion designers.

While they still hold elaborate traditional Shinto wedding ceremonies, Christian (or Western-style) weddings are gaining in popularity in Japan these days. I learned this firsthand when I was planning for my own wedding in 2003. Back then I received several 1-inch thick wedding magazines from my dad in Japan and so, pardon the ignorance but I was surprised to see that the Japanese didn’t just wear traditional kimonos to their weddings anymore. Their modern wedding dress designs are in fact chic, creative, and very wearable and it would be such a shame if they remain hidden from the non-Japanese speaking crowd. For this reason I decided to unearth these hidden gems and showcase them to the rest of the world.

Here’s a sampling of what you can expect to find on the blog:
