Xhosa Dresses For The Modern Bride

Xhosa dresses

I hope you’ve had a great weekend and that this Monday is treating you well so far. I spent most part of my weekend on periscope watching aisle’s perfect broadcast from NYC (my next holiday destination, saving loads for this one!) for bridal fashion week. Even though I was not physically there, I felt the anticipation and excitement while patiently waiting for the catwalks to begin. And when it all kicked off, I loved it.

Every gown from every designer was pretty awesome. From A-line silhouettes to sparkly blingy dresses and gorgeous back details. We are in for such a treat in bridal fashion this season. Of course, there were some dresses I loved more than others, which is always the case with me. Anyhow, I’m going to be blogging some of the collections and you can decide for yourself which one you fancy, so you can feast and dream up your day.

Talking about bridal fashion, I’ve noticed more and more of you are searching for Xhosa dresses on the blog. I thought I’d share some of the best Xhosa dresses I’ve seen around the web. Plus it has been quite a while since we’ve feasted on any African fashion especially Xhosa dresses. I must say it is so wonderful to be able to blog different kinds of bridal fashion here on Pure Wedding Blog. From New York to SA. We have the best of both worlds. Yay!!!

Xhosa Dresses Although I’m not Xhosa, I’ve always been intrigued by the way they style their brides for traditional ceremonies. Xhosa wedding dresses are ridiculously amazing, not to mention the beads and face painting of the bride(makoti). It always seems like something out of an African fairytale story (my grandad was very good at telling them.) Enjoy and be inspired. If your not Xhosa, don’t worry your turn is coming.Xhosa Dresses Xhosa Dresses Xhosa Dresses Xhosa Dresses Xhosa Dresses
