Yumi Katsura's 2011 Bridal Collection

Yumi Katsura is an internationally well-known Japanese designer of ready-to-wear and haute couture bridal gowns and is definitely in the mix when it comes to modern Japanese weddings. According to her blog and AllKPop, her 2011 collection  is said to have been influenced by K-Pop music artists B2ST, 4minute, and Supernova’s visual styles and performances so she personally designed outfits suited to their image.

Here are photos of her gowns from the 
Tokyo Grand Collection 2011, launched in February 23. The dresses in the collection feature her signature intricate lacework, origami folds, whimsical applique work, and exquisite beading.

Hatsuko Endo Modern Japanese Wedding Gown Collection

Hatsuko Endo is a pioneer in Japan's wedding industry, having opened the first ever bridal "grooming parlor" in 1905 in Ginza, Tokyo Japan. Before she opened one, the only makeup Japanese women used was a white rice powder infused with lead like those used by geisha. Later on her boutique also started carrying kimonos for traditional weddings. Nowadays, the Hatsuko Endo brand is synonymous with Japanese weddings, both modern and traditional.
