A wedding gown is the clothing worn by a bride during a wedding ceremony and its colour usually depends on the religion and culture of the wedding participants. Over the centuries, women continued to dress appropriately for their social status. It may seem that brides have been getting married in white forever, but that’s not the case. The trend of wearing an white wedding dress originated in Britain and first became popular during the Victorian era, after Queen Victoria wore a white lace dress at her wedding.
Nowadays, the term “white wedding” refers to the entire Western wedding routine, especially in the Christian religious tradition.
