why do some kallahs put on black ribbon after the chuppah on their dresses ?
Because it is photogenic.
cuz its in style!!
only because its photogenic or in style ?!
is it stylish also to have a red ribbon belt decorating the kallah’s gown? i’ve seen this recently… am i alone in thinking this is disgusting?
FYI essy8:- Red is considered a color of good luck in Chinese culture.
This week having been the Chinese New Year [on the real day of Molad Shevat] it is auspicious to be alluding to the Chinese in honor of their R’H.
@ 147 – i’ve only seen the red ribbon on frum kallahs. i think its strange because we wear white to symbolize purity from aveiros (yom kipur, kitel, etc) and red, particularly red thread/rope symbolizes the opposite.
not to mention that striking things like a red belt on a pure white dress and red clothing in general are not considered the height of tznius.
and chinese culture notwithstanding i think even in the american goyish society, the bride wears white to symbolize purity (in a different way) and a low red belt seems…i can’t think of a word that would get past moderation…trashy? crude?
The Winter Solstice is always in the 11th month of the Chinese calendar so the New Year is almost always on the second new moon following the Winter Solstice. The exception being when a leap month is added after the 11th or 12th month.
