From all the wedding traditions, the wearing a white dress is the most popular one here in the western world.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to visit a new bridal salon in Pittsburgh, called Blanc de Blanc.
I walked in there and I was embraced by a white atmosphere of the gorgeous and modern gowns, but from among all of them, my heart exploded when I saw that hand painted blue organza gown by the window... It was a Chantel Lauren <3
The first documented instance of a bride who wore a white wedding gown for a wedding ceremony was Princess Philippa of England, who wore a tunic with a cloak in white silk bordered with grey squirrel and ermine in 1406, however white, did not become popular until 1840, after the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe-Coburg.
At that time, Victoria wore a white gown for the event to incorporate some lace she prized. The official wedding portrait photograph was widely published, and many other brides opted for white in accordance with the Queen's choice.
