Wedding Gown Myth 1 : White Wedding Gowns Are A MUST
There is no rule saying that wedding gowns must be in white. In fact, there is neither a right nor wrong colour when choosing your wedding gowns!
The history of how wedding gowns are often seen to be white in colour was based on the belief that white symbolizes purity of the soul, which a bride should be up to the day she marries her husband. Plus, Queen Victoria was the one who catapulted the white wedding gown to where it is now.
However, this colour symbolization may not be totally true and accurate. White is also often associated to other meanings and beliefs. For example, in France, white is the traditional mourning color for royalty.

Similar colour shades to white such as ivory, blush, champagne and even light gold are also very popular colours, which many brides adore and look elegant in.
