    白無垢 Shiro-Muku: Brides who choose to have a traditional Japanese wedding at a shrine wear a white kimono, called "shiro-muku". It means white and pure and also symbolizes that the bride will give up her family and become the color of her husband's family. Also, the bride wears a big round white hat called "wata-boushi" so that no one else except the groom will see her face before the ceremony. The bride dressed in all white adds to the solemn atmosphere of the traditional wedding.
