INSIDER Logo By Darcy Schild of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 22: 
  For brides in all corners of the world, finding the perfect
  wedding
  dress is one of the most exciting parts about tying the knot.
  
  In some cultures, it's customary for the bride to change into
  multiple outfits throughout the wedding ceremony - like in a
  traditional 
    Moroccan wedding.
  
  Not all brides follow 
    the customs of their families or countries of origin, and
    every wedding is unique and special in its own way.

  In cultures and countries around the world, no two
  weddings are the same, but there's a common thread: The dress
  is often one of the most-anticipated elements. No matter the
  color, length, silhouette, or fabric, wedding dresses around the
  world are meaningful and symbolic in their own ways. 

  In Cambodia, a traditional bride may wear a gown that has
  belonged to her family for generations. In Morocco, the bride may
  have anywhere from three to seven outfit changes throughout the
  course of the ceremony. If you attend a wedding in Algeria, you
  can expect to see gorgeous henna designs on the hands and feet of the
  bride, and you may even get to attend a henna party the night
  before the ceremony.

  Not all countries or couples follow specific traditions,
  and each wedding - and dress - tells a unique story. Here are 21
  cultures' unique wedding-wear.
