The white wedding dress was started in the English Monarchy. Queen Victoria was the first “celebrity” that was looked up too, who wore a white wedding gown. Because of her, the popularity of white dresses became a true tradition among women around the world. “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?” The “old” was usually a personal gift from mother to daughter, a symbolic piece of wisdom for married life. The “new” symbolized the new family being formed by the marriage. “Borrowing” is especially important since it is to come from a happily married woman, thereby lending the bride some of her own marital bliss. “Blue” has two traditions, ancient Roman maidens wore blue on the borders of their robes to denote love, fidelity and modesty, while Christians associate it with the purity of the Virgin Mary.
