Color Prejudice

There is  a move to introduce a different color scheme into such an important event as a wedding, which is a starting point to break away from color prejudices. Traditionally, weddings have a predetermined color palette. The bride is supposed to wear only a white dress (with probably some little color added), the bouquet is also supposed to be white, either with white roses, gardenias or lilies of the valley. At times pink or light blue is added to dilute the whiteness. The tables are served with white table clothes, with a slight adding of another color. It’s a nice tradition to have a predominantly white color palette when getting married as white  is traditionally considered to have the symbolic meaning of purity, innocence, and completion. But it’s only good when a person who is getting married chooses white.

But what about the people who don’t feel like white color is the one that reflects their personality, feelings, and mood? Today's top designers try to take into consideration each individual, each taste for a different color and introduce new types of wedding dresses. One can now  choose a black wedding dress which is perfect for the person who doesn’t feel like wearing a traditional white dress. The wedding is one of the most important events in life as it symbolizes a new beginning, a new stage in life, and that’s why it is important to feel oneself comfortable on that special day. In the long run, all that matters is to express one’s uniqueness and not fall into  prejudices, as they limit the freedom of individuality.
There are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ colors; all colors express different things for different people. No matter whether you make art, paint your walls or buy a dress, — choose the colors that best express your personality, but not the colors you are supposed to use. If you don’t want to get married in a white dress, — don’t do it; if you like the white color, — go for it. It’s all about individuality and freedom of expression.
