White Wedding Dresses?



Ok. I had to blog about this topic because it was discussed on a radio station here the other night and it just irritated me like hell! The radio personality was really stuck on that women should only wear white wedding dresses if they are virgins/pure. I thought to myself, first off who the hell came up with that anyway? It's no damn law stating that you have to be a virgin in order to wear white at your own wedding. Again, its YOUR wedding so you can wear or do whatever the hell you want to do! I actually heard before during a previous radio show talking about the same thing that the idea of wearing a white wedding dress actually came from a queen in England who did it at her wedding and then American women just started to copy it. I'm not sure how true that is but, if it is true it seems like after that religious freaks just had to add their own justification to it. One thing that kills me the most about this issue is what about the men? There are no stipulations on what color their tuxedos should be based on if they've had sex or not. It kills me how when it comes to weddings only women have these crazy stipulations or traditions that are based on their sex life and there are none for men. For people to actually go along with this bullshit and probably don't even know who created it or where it came from, that's just insane. I heard women calling in on the radio making up all types of reasons why women who aren't virgins should wear ivory, cream, or any other color besides white. Come on now in 2008 there are probably only about 2-3% of brides in America who are actually virgins. Let's be real. I hate traditions anyway. I think that people should do whatever they want to at their weddings. I know when I get married I don't want a white or light colored dress period. I want a colored dress. I was thinking of something along the lines of gold or red. I don't even want a traditional American wedding dress. I'd like to wear a sari or just something that is so un-American.
