Wedding Dress Colour

If you’re thinking of breaking tradition and ditching the traditional white wedding dress here is a limerick advising of dress colours:

  • Married in White, you have chosen right,
  • Married in Blue, your love will always be true,
  • Married in Pearl, you will live in a whirl,
  • Married in Brown, you will live in town,
  • Married in Red, you will wish yourself dead,
  • Married in Yellow, ashamed of your fellow,
  • Married in Green, ashamed to be seen,
  • Married in Pink, your spirit will sink,
  • Married in Grey, you will go far away,
  • Married in Black, you will wish yourself back

The tradition of wearing a white wedding dress was started by Queen Victoria, she chose to wear a white dress instead of the traditional royal colour, silver. Before the white wedding dress brides would wear their best dress.
