Netizens were wondering why she wore a cream wedding gown.
Well, according to pundits, an off white color, usually champagne or cream wedding gown symbolizes innocence.
Some brides would view off-white shades as a unique colour.
Here are what the other colours on wedding gowns symbolize.
White Wedding Dress
The most traditional color for wedding dresses today. It symbolizes purity, innocence, light, virginity and positivity. It’s the quintessential bridal look.
Ivory Wedding Dress
Ivory is often considered a shade of a ‘white’ wedding dress. As such, it holds the same symbolism as white dresses.
Red Wedding Dress
In many Eastern cultures like China and India, red is the color of choice for traditional bridal dresses. However, red symbolizes passion, love, excitement and energy. It’s a daring color to opt for and not everyone can pull it off. It’s perfect if you’re not afraid to make a statement.
Lavender Wedding Dress
Lavender is a variation of purple, coming on the lighter end of the purple spectrum. While purple represents royalty, lavender represents beauty and sophistication. It’s a graceful, feminine color, ideal for a bride who wants to give the image of a sophisticated, stylish image.
Orange Wedding Dress
Orange is not a common color for wedding dresses and that alone makes it a great choice for a striking, statement look. Orange is connected to joy, sunshine, youthful positivity and happiness. It’s a color that radiates energy and a fun-loving nature but isn’t as in-your-face as red.
Silver Wedding Dress
Silver is a stylish, sophisticated color that radiates class and gives the bride a calm and confident look.
Black Wedding Dress
Black might seem like a strange color for a wedding dress. It’s not for the faint-hearted or someone who loves tradition. It’s a classy, elegant look representing power, strength, confidence and wealth.
