White wedding dresses -fading out!

White wedding dresses are now fading out slowly.

A white wedding is a traditional formal or semi-formal wedding dress originating in Great Britain. The term white wedding originates from the white color of the wedding dress.

Indeed, a white wedding dress is a historical tradition that has become ingrained in Western culture since Queen Victoria made it popular with an ivory lace design in 1840. The term now abridges the entire Western wedding routine, especially in the Christian religious tradition. Hence white wedding dresses are now fading out slowly.

However, the tradition of a white wedding dress is becoming a thing of the past. Modern African attitudes towards weddings are shifting to reflect society’s changing values around gender. Brides have more freedom to express themselves and wear a color that they truly feel comfortable in. They are no longer bound to one image of the perfect bride.


Meanwhile, It has now become trendy for the bride, her sisters, and friends to wear matching outfits just as bridesmaids would do at a white wedding.
Some even take it a notch further. With the groom also showing up dressed in an outfit that matches his bride’s outfit. And the decor is usually top-notch and designed to match the event. Even the more traditional-minded brides are selecting unconventional bridal gowns in colors more flattering than the classic white.
