Undoubtedly, a wedding is one of the most precious and memorable moments
in life. To make this occasion more remarkable, certain customs have been
practiced, like the special wedding dress, the wedding cake, etc. The
bride’s dress is given special importance and care is taken to make her
look like an angel in her beautiful wedding gown. The phrase, “dressed
up,” is perfectly suited for a wedding, where both the bride and the
groom are in their best attire.

The wedding dress is the dress worn by the bride during the wedding
ceremony. “Dress maketh a man.” Befittingly, the wedding dress or the
bridal gown is usually gorgeous and graceful to reflect the most precious
moment in life--marriage. The color, texture, design, etc. of the wedding
gown is naturally the bride’s choice. White is a popular color for
American wedding dresses, as white is associated with qualities like
purity, peace and chastity. Nevertheless, the gown may also be in shades
of white like ivory or eggshell.

The background of the wedding governs the nature of the wedding attire.
In other words, the society, the culture, and the customs followed by the
parties involved in the wedding are key factors in the making of the
wedding dress.

In the earlier days, any color other than black or red was acceptable for
the wedding gown. A face veil was also worn. The custom of wearing a
white dress at a wedding was imitated from the royal weddings, wherein
the queen wore a beautiful white wedding gown with a long train behind.
This idea was gained from peacocks, which were honored as royal birds.

For the Chinese, the red dress is the most preferred one for weddings.
The Chinese consider red to be a lucky color. The Indians also consider
red as a color of good omen, so brides in India wear a red sari, which is
bright and colorful too. But this color is avoided in Western countries.
