The History of White Wedding Dresses
White wedding dresses are considered some of the most traditional wedding dresses around, but the history of wearing a white gown to walk down the aisle only became popular in the mid-19th century, and probably not for the reason you think. In 1840, Queen Victoria wore a white lace wedding gown when she wed Prince Albert in one of the most heavily-photographed celebrity weddings of the time. At the time, a white wedding dress was impractical since white material is hard to clean, but after the queen's nuptials, white wedding dresses became status symbols because only wealthier women could afford the added expensive of having their dresses cleaned after the wedding. At the time, it was not uncommon to wear your wedding gown for other important events.
As cleaning services became more affordable and brides began to view wedding dresses as one-time use clothing, white gowns became more and more popular. What once began as a celebrity fashion trend firmly took root in the bridal industry and persists to this day.
