Kebaya Wedding Dresses Contemporary Looks

The sarong kebaya wedding dress has been gaining popularity in Singapore ever since Peranakan culture was put in the limelight with a popular Chinese drama called The Little Nyonya. The sarong kebaya is a typically Malay ethnic dress worn by women. It was adopted by the Chinese immigrants to South-east Asia. The sarong (the bottom skirt) is made of one long piece of cloth called the batik. It is usually brightly colored with prints on them. The top blouse (kebaya top) is made of intricate lace, and can be short or long. The top is usually made of silk material.

Peranakan Chinese brides used to wear the sarong kebaya dress at their weddings. These days some Peranakan Chinese brides are inspired to go back to their roots when selecting bridal dresses. Some of the pre-wedding photo shoots (pre-wedding photo shoots of the couple are common in Singapore) for these brides include nostalgic Peranakan wedding re-enactments. The sarong kebaya wedding dress is making a come-back with a contemporary and modern look!

The traditional Peranakan wedding dresses tended to be cut loosely for the brides. These days, modern brides prefer a form-fitting cut to show off their shapes.

Check out some of the designs for the contemporary sarong kebaya wedding dress.
