Red Wedding Dresses
Move out-of-the-way white, red is taking over as the latest rage in bridal dresses.
If you're tired of the traditional white bridal dress and want to be adventurous and sexy in your bridal gown consider wearing a red gown.

OK, so they won't be playing "Here comes the bride all dressed in white" if you wear a red dress, however, your friends and family will remember your special day for a long time to come and you will feel comfortable stepping out of the traditional white dress.
Western brides traditionally wear white because they are symbolic of a
woman's virtue and purity. They think a red gown is taboo. What they
don't realize is that in the Hindu, Buddhist and Vietnamese cultures,
red symbolizes good luck and auspiciousness.
The traditional white outfit became fashionable in 1840 when Queen Victoria wore a white gown for her marriage to Prince Albert. Prior to that, most women wore their "Sunday Best" without any concern for color.
