Weddings are a really huge deal everywhere in the world. The wedding gown or dress holds a lot of prominence in the ceremony. The reactions from the guests and groom when they set sight on the gown is every bride’s piece de resistance.
However, there are certain myths surrounding the wedding gown that has been passed from generation to generation. Whether the implications or consequences are true or not is anybody’s guess.
Below are such myths
Wedding Gowns Should Be White
Sure this myth is slowly fading. However, there are some people that still hold this myth in high regard. The white wedding gown is to symbolise purity. If your family is very traditional, be assured that you have no option than to go white. If white is not for you, let us suggest ivory. It is light enough to pass as white yet it is still not white. You can try other colors like pale pink, blue and gold
A Plus-sized Bride Cannot Wear A Wedding Gown
First of all where did this fat-shaming myth come from. We have had enough of the stereotype and discrimination against plus-sized brides. These women can look amazing in any wedding gown of their choosing. It is the confidence of the bride that will shine through in the dress. So for my plus-sized brides-to-be go wild in the gown shops and choose what makes you happy.
It’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony
This is one myth that is not going anywhere anytime soon. The origin of the myth was during the times when marriages were arranged. This was to prevent either parties from reneging on the deal if they see their partner. Now, several brides insist on not seeing their partners. Many believe it will make their day more exciting and memorable. However, whatever you choose remember it is your day.
