The first thing to consider is the color of the wedding dress. It should be white or any other light color. Of course, most bride's white dress and choose.

Often decide to get married couple who legally married a few years, often already have children. In this case, the priests usually recommend white dress to choose. The essence of the white bride in her innocence, even if in fact it is not.

As for the material of which should be stitched wedding dress, then there are no restrictions. But all sorts of rhinestones, beads and other shiny and shimmering detail should be a little, or not be at all. But this does not mean that the dress should be quite simple and inconspicuous. Feel free to choose satin, chiffon, lace. Popular now dress with a voluminous skirt on the rings is acceptable, but excessive flamboyance is still not needed. The West is quite a popular attribute dresses for wedding - long train. Of course, it is beautiful, but to the Orthodox tradition, this attribute has no relation and appropriate more for a wedding in the Catholic Church.
As you know, the woman is allowed to enter the Church only with the covered head. So be sure during the ritual wedding the bride's head needs to be veil or stole, gas scarf. But the hat as the headgear is not very suitable for the reason that over the heads of the married couple hold crowns - the Church's crown, why the rite and has the same name. If the head of the bride hat, it's simple uncomfortable.
