History of the Wedding Dress

wedding dress

The white dress was not originally the symbol of purity. Way back when, brides used to show their status in society by wear multicolored wedding dresses. Their dresses were designed to be mimic the fashion of the time.

Blue was the symbol of purity and therefore brides would wear a high fahioned blue dress to their wedding.

The white dress did not come on the scene until 1840, when Queen Victoria wore a high fashioned White wedding gown to her wedding. White was a symbol of wealth, because few women in the day wore it in their selection of clothing. After Queen Victoria burst on the scenes with her white dress, it became the envy of all women in Europe and around the world.
