Traditional Turkish Wedding Dresses & Turkish Bridal Wear

The traditional Turkish Wedding Dresses & Regional Turkish Bridal Wear (From 18th Century to our day)

In the Ottoman Empire, there were women in the different regional costumes.
The Anatolian woman crochets with a very fine needle from ornamental flower pattern pointed to the headscarf have been sewn. And they also do not forget to between real flowers stuck into the hair.

If it was the bride, she sewed her entire wealth such as gold and silver coins to her headscarf. Gold in the curriculum vitae of Turkish women is a very special significance. When a baby comes to the world, it is by relatives and acquaintances with gold recipient. The new mother gets both by their own mother as the mother and her husband, a gold bracelet. The most interesting is an engagement or wedding to see the relatives and acquaintances show their solidarity with the bride and Treat them with either a gold bracelet or gold coins as a sign of their support for the newly created marriage.

When the old Turk was the red bridal veil as a symbol. In the towns and villages earlier every bride wore necessarily a red Turkish bridal veil, with small silver pieces adorned war. The model of the headdress was from one place to another. If we continue to Central Anatolia to the east drive, we see that the number of jewels still enlarged. At that time, the Civil woman next to her golden or silver headdress and a small hat, with the peak of silk yarn in the form of roses or carnations was decorated motifs. Partially were also diamond needles inserted into the hair.

In the 20th century influenced the European fashion with her white wedding dresses even the appearance of the Turkish bridal veil. They were now beige-colored, but the silver coins and decorative floral arrangement from Hungary remained. The Ottoman village woman had her most comfortable clothes in everyday life. The Konak lady had this in their everyday dress made of velvet and silk.


In what time we are, our women are like yesterday, today their tasks. The mothers give the customs and traditions to their daughters on. This creates a common understanding of life, the generations are closely linked. This is reflected in the colorful clothing of our village women, in a carnation in the hair in a silk cloth on his head ..... and our jewelry, which is also an expression of our love.
