Weddings call for finery. Regardless of their economic circumstances, the bride and groom wear special clothing – perhaps something elegant designed for the occasion, or perhaps the best in their closets, cleaned and neatly pressed.

Even if they don relatively ordinary dress-up clothes, many couples enhance their outfits with special jewelry or other accoutrements.
