Wedding Traditions & Customs Part 1 - Wedding Gown Color

Ever wonder why the traiditonal wedding gown is white?  Many couples incorporate customs into their weddings but do not know the origin of these traditions.  The original wedding gown was red.  In some cultures, red signifies luck.  In Biblical times, blue was a traditional color because it signifies purity.  Today, the color blue is represented as the "something blue" for the bride on her wedding day.

Supposedly, the first all white wedding dress was worn sometime around the late 1400s.  The white gown is a tradition of Japan and Greece.  White was worn to represent innocence and purity.  Today, white and ivory are the most popular gowns for many brides.  The most daring brides will wear whatever color suits them, even black.
