Who says you have to wear white when you get married? Could this be the beginning of the death of the white wedding? Young brides are now opting for a brightly colored dress – with one in ten opting for red! While it has been common practice and etiquette as well, for a woman who has already been married before to wear a different colored wedding gown if she gets married for the second time, these are young ‘first-time brides’ who are ditching white in favor of a bold bright color instead!
