The imperfect perfect wedding dress
Every girl dreams of her perfect wedding day, planning, sketching, ripping pictures from magazines until that dream turns into reality. As little girls, most of us focused on the wedding dress. In life we know by instinct that the sky is blue, that the grass is green and that the sun is yellow, but come to think of it, wedding dresses didn’t always have to be white
Wedding dresses were established back in 1840 after Queen Victoria married Albert of Saxe-Coburg in a white wedding dress representing her wealth, since then, her white dress inspired thousands of women to follow her footsteps, after that, one of the first women’s magazine in America ‘Godey’s Lady’s Book’ stated that white was the most fitting color to wear on your wedding day.
While in other countries such as China, India, and other Eastern cultures the bride would often wear the color red or a white dress incorporating red fabric, which made them to believe that red represented goodluck.
Nowadays the color pallete of wedding dresses have spread across the nations, leaving you with limitless options of beautifully structured gowns. Valentino, Ralph & Russo, and Marchesa are a few of the designers that changed the white wedding dress tradition and infused more fabrics, textures, and colors to their creations.
