I hosted a kimono show; the theme was a girly Japanese wedding party!
There was a bride, her mother, her sisters, nieces and many friends, all dressed in different types of kimono to show formality, but also to show how you can dress up in not so formal kimono and still look smart enough for a wedding party

This iro-uchikake is fairly simple as iro-uchikake can be very bright and gaudy. It has elaborate embroidered pattern of momiji, sakura and ume pattern with of course the cranes for long life and happiness.
