White Bridal Dresses-Tradition and Trend
When thinking about a wedding day automatically one thinks about the bride and its wedding dress of purely white look. What is this all about? What is the importance of having or not a white wedding dress? It is true that this is not quite a written strict rule but it has become a symbol for a person in this posture, for a bride and so it remains until nowadays. People consider this as the only chance to wear the splendor of white dress and so, fewer are the ones to renounce to this aspect.
The story of white wedding dresses starts in ancient time, being in fact correlated to the religious dogmas. It was said that the chastity of a woman was its character and whole personality description. If the body pleasures were denied until the marriage time gods were pleased and the grooms had the chance to a happy life together- the woman was blessed with healthy kids. It is a whole chain of religious sayings but people were conducted by these.
Nowadays the white wedding dresses are as well related to this part but in a less strict manner. Mostly, it has become a symbol for the brides but for those that get married for the first time. So, to make this social difference the brides have to wear white dresses, the secondly or thirdly time getting married brides have to wear colored dresses.
In the emotional side white is the symbol for purity, for sincerity and honesty. And so are the feelings of a bride and of a groom as well. It is a totally representative posture. Consequently, again the white wedding dresses are the preferential ones for almost all the brides. Even though modernism starts to gain more and more power in comparison with the traditional side still the white wedding dresses are not completely replaced. A new tendency appeared which is the wedding gowns with colors accents but this means just to add another color for the effect, for the visual contrast that attracts more and so puts more accents on the bride’s beauty and on it’s dress style and design.
But after all and be honest what has to do the color with the wedding day and with what marriage means? Any other color cannot be appropriate for a bride to wear? Is white such a powerful symbol that brides cannot replace it? The options are dived and as many consider this a right thing, to fallow such “rules” in the same measure others consider their voice to be the true one- that this is just about old sayings.
True or not, believing these or not, the result is the same one: white wedding dresses are on top of preferential bridal gowns types. And as still nowadays no others types could replace this I believe that there should pass many others years to see any change.
