For a bride, wearing a white gown to your wedding is an age old tradition only a few people dare to break. According to some people, wearing white is a sign of purity and chastity of the bride. Another legend has it that Queen Victoria wore it for her wedding to Prince Albert, simply because she liked the colour white, and sparked a world wide trend.
Whatever the origin is, why are brides still such sticklers to the all white rule?
Personally I don’t want a white wedding dress, simply because white just isn’t my colour, and I want my skin to pop on my wedding day of all days. Somehow every single person I’ve talked to about not wanting a white wedding dress has given me reactions ranging from “Are you crazy?” to “Your wedding day is not the time to start forming different”.
Whichever you might prefer, the classic white wedding dress or a more daring colour and cut, your wedding dress should be a reflection of not just your personal style but of you.
