It’s commonly known that the whole world has accepted white weddings as the norm. The husband has to be dressed in a black colored suit, while the wife has to wear a white wedding gown.
Of course, there are a lot of brides-to-be around the world who think outside the box, and perhaps want to switch things up a little bit.
Undoubtedly white is an elegant choice, but like waiting until your wedding night, an ivory dress is no longer mandatory for a trip down the aisle in 2017.
Sophie Cachia, aka The Young Mummy, broke the mold in October of 2015, by dressing completely in black for her big day.
“If you were to specifically ask me why I wore black on my wedding day, I can only answer in the most honest and direct way possible; because I wanted to,” she wrote in a post for Mamamia after her big day.
“Black is classic. It looks good on just about everyone. It’s bold, it’s sexy, it’s daring.
“We didn’t see the point in doing anything traditional because traditional simply isn’t us.”
Mamamia Outloud: ‘til death do us part is OVER’.
According to Sydney marriage celebrant Carly Brown, one of the biggest regrets women have about their nuptials is feeling “unrecognizable” on their big day.
“There’s ‘looking nice’ and there is looking like a completely different human,” she explained to Mamamia.
“Of course, make an effort like you would for any other big occasion – but you’ll be way more comfortable if you stay true to yourself and you look like YOU.
“Question things, especially wedding traditions. Does it work for you? If not, throw it out and only keep the ones that do.” The couple in the wedding we’re sharing today are both feminists. They had a ‘first look’, and walked down the aisle together. See more of these beautiful images over on lovemydress.net today (link in profile). Are any of you lovely brides to be wearing a coloured wedding dress by the way? #weddingtradition #feministweddings (dress by @katebeaumont, image by @shelley_richmond_).
Color me beautiful
“Your fiancé loves you for who he fell for, not for a streaky-orange, talon-nailed, painted-faced, giant-hair, taffeta explosion version of yourself.”
Brides all over the world are finally forgoing white and only white, and that’s a very good thing.
