Looking for a glamorous, sizzling, and show-stopping color to enhance your special day? While women have traditionally donned white, they are now turning to other colors and experimenting with their looks. Many new brides prefer red as it’s the color of love. Red wedding dresses will help you make a statement on your wedding day.
A red wedding dress opens up exciting opportunities to experiment and play when it comes to accessories, jewelry, shoes, veil, and headpiece. It can be long or short – it’s your special day and you make the rules.
While almost every bride wears the traditional white look, there’s something about red that makes your dress more gorgeous, bolder, and more eye-catching. And what can be a better way to walk down the aisle than wearing the color of love?
Why Do So Many Brides Go for Red Wedding Dresses?
Apart from the bold looks, passionate appearance, and audacious attitude, red has other significance as well. Red is a part of several cultures and religions. For example, in Chinese and Indian cultures, red is the traditional wedding color because of the luck it carries.
While in western cultures, red signifies passion and love, in Chinese culture, red stands for happiness and fertility. They believe that a marriage will last for life if the bride wears red.
