Some dream to walk down the aisle wearing the white dress, others just the wedding dress. The color imposed comes with roosts from ancient times. White is the symbol of purity, chastity, sincerity. And as religious dogmas- more strict back in time but still nowadays persisting- requested these for a bride to be it remain as symbol exclusively for women in this posture, at this unique event. Hence, nowadays things have changed a little bit.
It is whimsical to see a bride wearing something else than the white dress? Some say yes, others embrace the modern style. With not quite a huge difference of nuance so a too extreme one but still a change in the traditional view pale pink wedding dresses have taken successfully the place of classic purely white gowns. Not for all and on large scale but it is a beginning.
Pale pink wedding dresses
Blaming or not those that prefer a pale pink instead the pure white in some cases there are reasonable ideas for this change. Besides just the pleasure and personal preference for this view, the idea of originality achieved in appearance white for some may accentuate much more the skin tone. And when this is a pale one too then with white you only succeed to make yourself a bridal image as a scary one.
But here the professional make up can take the reins. Now from the perspective of what tradition says about the white dress there may be cases of brides at their second chance trying to find the happiness in a marriage. No longer white as purity symbol is preferential but not quite a vivid, intense nuance either. So the middle way is about pale colors and why not pink, a feminine, jovial color and symbol of hope.
In the adverse camp if the bride will wear a pale pink dress the bridesmaids will wear what? You could make any contrast with any color but it’s simply not the same way. People are used to brides wearing white and the impressive part won’t be late to appear, even though it is the classic way, the common pattern, the same boring white. Plus that women guests always keep their firm solidarity position of avoiding wearing white and the bride being the single one.
Adding the uniqueness of the event and the posture for a woman I believe many will change the mind from pink to white again. Or contrary. Where do you stand in this case?
