White wedding gowns are a staple in every single Western wedding you see. But are white dresses still popular among brides? Even more, what makes them wear white, in the end?
We have some tips for you, so read on and find out more.
- First of all, it might be surprising for you to know white wedding gowns haven’t been around forever. In fact, they’ve only become a “thing” about two centuries ago, when queen Victoria herself chose to wear white on her wedding day. Back then, this was a complete shock for everyone – but soon enough, the white wedding gown became tradition.
- Modern brides are not obliged to wear white (not in any way, actually). From off-white shades to sweet pastels, bold colors, and even black, brides can wear whatever they please today. Yet, they almost always go back to the white wedding dress.
- There are a few reasons that determine them to pick white over any other color. First of all, it is a beautiful tradition, even for brides who are feminists and might associate the white dress with patriarchy. Why? Well, these days, the white dress doesn’t stand so much for the purity of the bride herself, but for the innocence, beauty, and sensitivity of the love story that brought the bride and the groom together.
- Of course, there’s also another reason: you only get to be a bride once, and a white wedding gown looks truly glorious on a happy woman, walking down the aisle, heading towards her future with the person she loves!
