White is often associated with purity, which is why it's thought of as the traditional colour for virgin brides.
But did you know that before the mid-1800s, brides actually wore red.
They didn't start wearing white until around 1840 when Queen Victoria was married to Prince Albert.
Victoria went against tradition and opted for a white, lacy dress - a colour that, at the time, represented wealth as opposed to purity.
Clearly, the trend caught on, as many brides today still covet the classic white gown.
