A wedding dress or wedding gown is the clothing worn by a bride during a wedding ceremony. Color, style and ceremonial importance of the gown can depend on the religion and culture of the wedding participants. Most brides choose a dress of white to symbolize purity of the soul.


WESTERN CULTURE

Weddings performed during and immediately following the Middle Ages were often more than just a union between two people. They could be a union between two families, two businesses or even two countries. Many weddings were more a matter of politics than love, particularly among the nobility and the higher social classes. Brides were therefore expected to dress in a manner that cast their families in the most favorable light, for they were not representing only themselves during the ceremony. Brides from wealthy families often wore rich colors and exclusive fabrics. It was common to see them wearing bold colors and layers of furs, velvet and silk.

The bridesmaids are members of the bride's party in a wedding. A bridesmaid is typically a young woman, and often a close friend or relative. She attends to the bride on the day of a wedding or marriage ceremony. Traditionally, bridesmaids were chosen from unwed young women of marriageable age .

The principal bridesmaid, if one is so designated, may be called the chief bridesmaid or maid of honor if she is unmarried, or the matron of honor if she is married. A junior bridesmaid is a girl who is clearly too young to be married, but who is included as an honorary bridesmaid. In the United States, typically only the maid/matron of honor and the best man are the official witnesses for the wedding license .

Often there is more than one bridesmaid: in modern times the bride chooses how many to ask. Historically, no person of status went out unattended, and the size of the retinue was closely calculated to be appropriate to the family's social status. A large group of bridesmaids provided an opportunity for showing off the family's social status and wealth . Today, the number of bridesmaids in a wedding party is dependent on many variables, including a bride's preferences, the size of her family, and the number of attendants her partner would like to have as well.

Sing along if you know the words: “Here comes the bride! All dressed in whatever color her bridesmaids are wearing in order beguile demonic spirits and highwaymen!”

It’s kind of baffling how many modern wedding traditions actually stem from a time when brides were routinely kidnapped. Why does the bride stand on the left? So the groom’s right hand is free to draw his sword and fight off hijackers (or, as was often the case, counter-hijackers). Why is the best man called the ‘best man’? Because he’s the best man in a sword fight, which is pretty much guaranteed to happen when a rival suitor or the bride’s angry family crashes the ceremony.

Why, then, do bridesmaids all wear matching colors? It’s an old tradition that comes from a time when bridesmaids not only dressed like each other, but like the bride herself. According to Hanne Blank, author of Virgin, the Untouched History , the real reason behind this wasn’t for the group to look super fly in portraits and etchings, but to “ confuse evil spirits or those who wished to harm the bride.”

Did you wear a veil on your wedding day? These days, it’s a real fashion choice… Some brides choose a quaint little tiarra, while others go for a full veil. How you choose to dress is 100% up to you. But, did you ever wonder what the real reason behind wearing a veil is?

As it turns out, there is more than one reason why historically ladies wore these things… And some of the reasons are pretty odd by modern standards.

From warding off demons to stopping the bride making a run for it, there was a whole host of strange reasons women used to wear this simple item of clothing.

Sir Richard Branson has made a fortune from a string of business ventures that bear his signature brand, including Virgin Trains and Virgin Media. But Little Red joins a series of failures that have seen Branson fail to break into lucrative markets including soft drinks and alcohol.

Virgin Cola
Launched in 1994, Virgin Cola was initially available only on Virgin planes and in Virgin cinemas before Branson sought wider distribution. “It tasted better than Coke. For one wonderful year we had the dream of Virgin Cola being the brand on everyone’s lips.” Instead, Branson claimed, “swat teams and bagfuls of money” sent from Coke’s Atlanta headquarters gobbled up his drink, whose market share peaked at 0.5% in the three years it was on sale in the US. In 2012, the UK producer went bust and no one else acquired the licence.

Virgin Vodka
A complementary spirit was born at the same time, but never came close to gaining the same traction – with other alcopop and energy drinks also failing to whet the appetite. The entire Virgin Drinks subsidiary has since folded.
