Although wedding ceremony exists in the
world since ancient times, the history of wearing wedding dresses at wedding
ceremony is no more than 200 years. The white floor-length dress with court
train was originally a formal Catholic costume. For some European countries at ancient
times are theocratic state, the marriage is considered illegal unless the couple
go to church for the priest’s blessing. Therefore, at the wedding, the bride wore
white formal dress to show God sincerity and purity. In the West before the 19th
century, there is no uniform color for bridal gowns. Until 1820, white color
gradually becomes widely-used in bridal dress design. This is because the Queen
Victoria wore an elegant white wedding dress in the ceremony. Since then, the
white dress is taken as the formal wedding wear.
Nowadays, with the fashion trends changing,
wedding dresses are not limited to white color. Apart from white, ivory, beige
and other traditional colors, some light fresh colors are increasingly popular
in recent years, such like pearl pink, pink orange, baby blue and pink lilac,
very soft and pleasing.
For my part, choosing the color of wedding
dress simply by personal preferences is not advisable. It is very probably occurred
that your favorite color goes against with your skin color. At this situation, I
think, it is better for you to listen to suggestions and comments by people
around you. Another simple and effective way is to try the most as you can if
you have enough energy and your patience. Putting on those wedding dresses you
like one by one and then note down your preferences among which you can make
the final decision. Anyway, trying on wedding dresses costs no money. And do
not feel troublesome cause it maybe the right way to help you pick your dream
gown out. There is a misunderstanding that needs to be clarified. Do not blindly
worship those famous brands or the expensive gowns. The best wedding dress is
which fits you most.
The color of the wedding gown itself plays
an important role in match with the bride’s complexion. For the deep yellow
skin, the white wedding dress will look dull and dead, while an ivory one would
be more harmonious and natural. As for the rosy skin or perhaps bronze skin,
wearing a white wedding dress will be very stunning, emitting an extraordinary
sparkle together with the groom's tuxedo. For the color wedding dresses, baby
blue and pink lilac can be coordinated with white skin while pink orange and
powder green with yellowish color.
Everyone has several colors he or she
dislikes even hates. Then stay away from those colors. An ideal bridal gown
must meets three factors: the color, the style and the quality which cannot be separated.
Color defines your entire image on your big day and your first impression to
the people at the wedding ceremony. So if you choose a wedding dress in a color
you hate, just because you’re perfect in that style, then you would not have a
good mood all day.
