Bridal Gowns

In ancient times, the traditional color of bridal gowns was red. The wife of Napoleon III broke the tradition and wore a white gown. Then, brides began wearing white gowns (which were worn only once) as a symbol of their wealth.

Who knew?
My mom's got worn three times - by her, by Dad's cousin and by me.

Mine was worn twice. It was the "something borrowed" for my sister-in-law's wedding, now that I think of it.

Well the funniest thing I heard at a wedding was "her wedding dress should have been red, not off white". I guess what made it so funny was the fact that it was a grandmother who whispered it during the ceremony.
