When we think about wedding, we think about white. Why this? Probably because white symbolizes chastity, sacredness, innocence, spiritual authority and redemption. The white dress of the bride indicates her purity and decency. This is the reason why wedding tradition wants that only a virgin female can get married with a white dress. Obviously not everybody respect this restriction and everyone chooses his color following his desires.
Wedding is a dream that become true. In the dreams of all the script repeats itself: the bride wearing a white dress arrives arm in arm with her dad between crowd and flowers and goes out arm in arm with her husband in a rice’s rain. They cut wedding cake together and finally distribute smiles, sweet confections and favors. Wedding is an eternal rite touched lightly by short-lived trends. So it’s sufficient a personal touch to transform the ceremony in a event that nobody will forget.
