Why does a wedding dress have to be white (creme colored, champagne, whatever)? I think it's just so phony when you're actually not a virgin anymore.

It used to be a symbol of virginity. That you're pure. And I dare to make a guess that these days, in most cases, it's just show.

  • White is traditional for brides. What does it matter what color she wears as long as her wedding day is happy? Times have changed and a lot of other things don't mean what they used to mean. Remember when "shut up" used to mean "close your mouth"?

  • I had a red gown, bought by http://redhotbrides.com/home/ I would never ever wear a white gown, I think it looks bad and I don't like conventional things anyways, but most of all, I really don't like white as a color. "Alice" was my wedding gown and it was this one http://redhotbrides.com/home/images/phocagallery/MaggieSottero/thumbs/phoca_thumb_l_maggie-alice2.jpg I wouldn't change it for all the white gowns in the world. :)

  • I have watched "Say Yes To The Dress". Some women have ordered colored wedding gowns.

  • I think it is just done because it is tradition and most people expect to see the bride in white. And White looks good in photos, especially when the guy is wearing a dark tux or suit. When I got married the second time, I was looking at a red dress--bright, fire engine red-but settled on a cream color.
