For many people, a wedding dress should be a traditional full-length dress to be white, symbolizing the bride pure heart and innocence, complete with veil and train first popularized by Queen Victoria when she broke with royal tradition to marry money and chose a white gown for her wedding to Prince Albert. It started a craze that still knows many women choose to or a variation of white as cream, eggshell or ivory.
But today we see two major changes that take place when it comes to weddings.
The first is a return to pre-Victorian times, when married women in simple robes, almost any color they liked, with the exception of black which has been associated with mourning and red in connection that has brought only by the "ladies of the night. " The distribution means so much with the veil, which is supposed to symbolize virginity, and the train is very much a trapping of royal weddings and emulates the peacock, which was once saw a royal bird.
The second is a departure from the church wedding in the direction of weddings in a variety of places, including beach wedding is held in popularity.
As a result, not only now marry a much wider choice of colors for her wedding dress, but more importantly, the distribution with the veil and the train and the need for a full-length robe now means that brides can choose from a range of wedding dresses to choose much easier. For the cost conscious this is great, and informal wedding dresses are also significantly cheaper than the fully equipped traditional white wedding.
It's like a pair of running shoes - you can buy two pair of shoes almost identical and to pay ten times more for a couple of the others simply because it is a brand. It is not hard to find wedding dresses and still look relatively cheap in the end like a million dollars in the dress of your dreams.
