Geisha wear their kimono pulled low at the back of the neck, exposing the nape which is considered very sexy. This young lady seems merely dressed for a formsl occasion and not a geisha.

Anonymous above is correct. This young woman is not a Geisha but acts as someone representing her family at a wedding. The kamon -family crest- visible by her shoulders is a large hint to that as well as the fact that she is already married.

She looks as though she just doesn't care anymore, to quote a popular song about now, "my give a damn is busted".
The slouch is what really gave me this impression, usually Japanese posture, especially in kimono (especially formal attire) is so upright.
