Does my daughter have to wear a white dress at her wedding next year? She wants to wear a long skirt and top that aren’t white.

Bold brides are saying “I don’t” to the traditional white wedding dress. Daring to wear irreverent colors such as gray, called “smoke,” and shades of the palest pinks and lavender, as well as the boldest coral and purple, the flashiest of red and coolest of blues, and the ever so chic black There is no rule carved in stone that says the bride’s wedding dress has to be white.Prior to Queen Victoria wearing a white wedding gown when she married Prince Albert in 1840,most wedding dresses had been blue. So began the trend in the 20th century with the exception of the 1920s and 30s, when shell pink and pale blue were in vogue.Traditionally, in the modern Western world brides have chosen white for it’s identification with purity This is in keeping with the all-white dress worn for Christenings, communions, and. .
