Top Bridal Myths Debunked

By Laurenzo Overee

Bridal myths pass on across generations for many reasons. These may stem from individual perspectives to exaggerated warnings. Whatever the real reason may be, it is safe to say that they are called myths for a reason. Logic gets lost in translation from person to person, and you don’t have to treat these myths as law. You don’t!

From your wedding gown choice to the way you react at the altar. These myths play out marvelously in movies – but it’s your big day, and you should define it in your original style. Be the director and scriptwriter. Take charge of each scene!

Bridal Myths #1 – Wedding Gowns Should Be Some Form of White

Yes, we have all heard that ancient rhetoric before. “Brides should don white wedding gowns to represent purity, bliss, and grace.” But let’s face it – it’s an antiquated mindset to have in the 21st century. 

Nowadays, anything goes in an inclusive world. Wear any colour that suits your fancy, nobody will judge. And if they do, it shouldn’t make you feel bad. It’s your event, so be confident of your fashion decision!

Bridal Myths #2 – You Should Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve

If you have spammed romcoms and sappy love movies in the past, you know the bride always cries. She’s like a delicate porcelain doll who sheds a tear at the slightest emotional moment. The truth is, each bride expresses herself according to her unique personality.

You are not obliged to react a certain way as your partner reads his vows or places a ring on your finger. Be yourself, and don’t feel stressed to fit a specific mold. You could laugh, smile sweetly, and yes, even cry. But the bottom line is that there is no one legit bridal reaction –  and you don’t have to feel weird about being yourself. 

Bridal Myths #3 – Wedding Gown Testing is a Nightmare
