Uchikake

White Uchikake (Shiro-Muku)- Worn by the bride during the wedding ceremony.  Shiro means white and muku means gown.

In a traditional Japanese wedding, the bride's hair is also styled in the traditional style called bunkin-takashimada and adorned with beautiful combs and accessories called kanzashi. A white wedding hood called tsuno kakushi is meant to hide two front "tsuno" or horns during the wedding ceremony to symbolize obedience.
