White has been the classic color for wedding dresses in the Western World since Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840. Associated with purity and perfection, the clean look of white appeals to couples no matter how they interpret its meaning and is used in chic, modern weddings with touches of pink, silver, and gold.
White comes in a myriad of shades, over 150,000 in fact, ranging from cool bright white to the warmest tones, and many shades of white look beautiful blended together.
If a white wedding appeals to you, there are thousands of ways to make it the main color in your palette from fashion and decor, starting with your wedding dress, bouquet, and groom’s attire.
Then, moving onto dressing your bridal party, with matching bouquets and dresses in sexy silk or soft chiffon, and white boutonnieres for the guys.
Once you’ve got the fashion pieces sewn up, move on to adding white to your ceremony. Create a stunning arbor with white or cream roses, or drape your altar with flowing white fabric.
Set the table with centerpieces of peonies, orchids, and roses.
Choose a white cake with coconut or vanilla cream filling and festoon it with white candy or buttercream flowers.
Then roll up in a white Rolls Royce wearing white wedding shoes, a stylish veil, or holding a white parasol!
