While a man is obligated to grow a beard and shave his mustache, Amish women also have obligations regarding their appearance. The common theme of Amish life is “plainness,” and this certainly crosses over into clothing, even when it comes to a woman’s big day. On her wedding day, an Amish woman must sew her own outfit, which in some communities, needs to be blue. After she has got married, the Amish wife must wear her dress every Sunday, for the rest of her life.

It is traditional that an Amish woman wear her wedding dress, apron, and cape when she passes away.
