With a history of just a bit more than two centuries, the white wedding dress is not as mandatory today as some may think it is. In fact, there are plenty of reasons that make brides not wear white on their Big Day – and following, we have gathered 4 of the most commonly encountered ones. Read on and find out more.
- You don’t like wearing white. If you feel that white doesn’t look good with your complexion, you are more than free to choose any other color you like. After all, this is your wedding and you want to feel gorgeous in your dress.
- You consider it boring. Some brides see white as a boring choice – so if you want to be unique and out of the ordinary, you can definitely wear a colored wedding gown.
- You are a feminist and you feel strongly against the idea of a white dress. Considering the fact that the tradition of the white wedding gown is related to the purity of the bride (and its confirmation), many modern ladies may feel against the idea. And if you are among them, it’s perfectly understandable why you wouldn’t want to wear a white dress.
- It’s trendy. While white will always dominate the wedding fashion runways, colored dresses have become quite popular too. From dresses made with gorgeous flowery prints to classy black and white combinations and gowns with just a splash of color on them, there’s a huge variety of designer creations that are full of grace, elegance and…color.
