Wedding Traditions: Dress
daily tip by Buffalo Brides | posted on April 03, 2013 at 1:00am
Traditionally, brides did not wear white wedding gowns. Through the 18th century, most brides just wore their Sunday best to their wedding. Red was a favorite during the Middle Ages in Europe. Other colors were worn for symbolic reasons: blue meant constancy and green meant youth. As years passed, white was worn as a symbol of purity. Today, white merely symbolizes the wedding and is worn by any bride, no matter if it is their second marriage.
Would you consider wearing a wedding dress that isn’t white? Why or why not?
