Norwegian bride wearing a traditional folk costume with a bridal crown. The bridal crown has small metal discs and beads hanging from it which produce a melodic tinkling — according to legend, this is to ward off evil spirits from the bride.
This is a Bunad traditional dress of Norway. The head piece is called a skaut, and is worn by married women. Other headpieces are worn by young girls, like beaded caps. Unmarried women wear headband like wraps for their head pieces.
