The story of the real bridal attire, traditions and changes in colors
A surprise for some to hear about this it wasn’t for always this tradition we have now with the bridal attire to be the all white view. Back in time at such an event the bride used to wear colored gown but with exception red as being a disrespect, the color symbol for courtesans. As to make a symbolic color for the brides only it used then to be the blue colored gown, as expression for loyalty. Not until the wedding of Queen Victoria white gowns have become the purity symbol.
But yet since then and now too the white gowns remained the same, unwritten but respected rule for brides. And hearing about colored gowns is for some a modernism influence but with direction to force the limits, to break the rules, to be nonconformist. Today we take a personal example, the blue wedding gowns. So on the one hand you have on your side traditions even though with roots so distant. On the other hand since all brides or the majority stick with the classic plan of white gown you to come wearing blue is much more than a shocking presence.
Why is that blue wedding gowns a not taken serious choice for the brides? Concepts vary and while some consider it is a matter of taste others take it on the rebellious path, being about those that have the guts to change the bridal common wear style. But it all comes with a price and a risk. Think that you may have the unpleasant surprise at the wedding to see some of your ladies guests wearing as well blue gowns and after all they do nothing wrong since they all consider white is the exclusivist nuance for you.
Apart from this, in the spirit we were raised you to change some parts in the wedding may lead to regrets later. With the uniqueness of the event and this posture of being a bride you have no chance for later to be in white dressed but now. And now you prefer blue instead but no matter its nuance this can be a daily outfit.
Taking it on the other way, blue wedding gowns may be the ones to fulfill some of the brides’ requests and dreams in fashion world. Why to interfere the conventionalism in this?
