Finding the perfect wedding dress can be a very tiring, frustrating, and at the same time fun and exciting experience for all brides-to-be all over the world. Your wedding gown will forever remind you of the day or night you walked down the aisle to join hands with the man you are to spend the rest of your life with, a symbol in many cultures and societies of purity, happiness, love, and prosperity, and of course a dress that you will cherish and would want to pass down to your own daughters in the future. Wedding dresses have always been made in white to symbolize the purity and innocence of a woman before entering into marriage, but nowadays a new trend of wedding gowns is finally taking over and competing with this old tradition. Red wedding dresses have become very popular in most countries in Europe and are now spreading fast and wide in North America.
Women believe that the wedding gown is one of the most important things to plan, think through, and shop for before the big day, which is why they want their dresses to be special and memorable as it will be the first and probably the only wedding dress that they will be spending a lot of time and effort for. What’s more, it is becoming more and more difficult to grab some of the best wedding gowns because of the price and the demand. Though there are still some women who stick to the traditional white wedding dress, many of today’s women are now seeing the boldness and sensuality in a hot red wedding dress.
It may seem quite rebellious to do so, but red has already been considered a traditional color for brides in other countries in Asia and Africa. Heck, there have been studies done that prove that even women in early American history wore red to their weddings, particularly during the Revolutionary War against England. For instance, Chinese brides are usually dressed in red as this color symbolizes joy, luck, and prosperity all throughout one’s married life. Even the family and guests at the wedding reception can wear red or will be asked to wear red in order to bring in a good flow of luck and fortune to the marriage. Another instance is Indian brides wearing red bridal saris, a color very common and frequently worn by Indian brides.
If red is the motif color and you want your wedding dress to match it wonderfully, you can always search online for ideas of red wedding dresses. Believe it or not, a lot of today’s red wedding dresses can be found online, especially because most of the bridal stores are still selling white wedding gowns predominantly.
