Should You Wear a White Dress?

Should You Wear a White Dress?

Chinese brides wear red on their wedding day because this is considered to be the luckiest and most joyous color in their culture – so it makes perfect sense that they associate it with such a happy, life-changing event.

·       In the Western countries, white is the color of choice for most brides – but truth be told, more and more of them are opting for off-white and even completely colored wedding gowns.

·       Should you wear white too? What is the meaning behind this culture and why would you actually want to wear it on your wedding day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       First of all, you should definitely know that the white wedding dress tradition has not always been around. In fact, it is less than two centuries old and it was first started by Queen Victoria who wore a white wedding dress. Shockingly enough, that was considered to be a scandal back then.

·       As time passed, the white wedding gown received a very puritan connotation – and innocence (especially the innocence of the bride) was represented in the dress she wore on her Big Day.

·       Today, white wedding dresses seem to be only a matter of tradition and fashion. You can choose to wear it (for its beauty, uniqueness, and grace, or simply for the fact that you love it as it is). At the same time, you can choose to wear your gown in any other color under the sun too!
