The church has made its influence on marrying couples. For instance, not so long ago, brides can wear any type of wedding gown and any color that they wanted although it is now acceptable for brides to wear any color of gown they wish to wear these days, but it was more natural back in the days. These colors also signify the status of the bride and also held meaning to the color. When Queen Elizabeth used a white wedding gown during her wedding in the 18th hundred, every women wanted to be liked her so the white gown, became so popular that we are also enjoying wearing such gown until today.
Asian countries also followed such tradition that even if they still have their traditional wedding gown from their own country, they have now blended the use of the white gown and the use of beautiful bridal jewelry. Most brides use a white wedding gown during the ceremony and change to a different costume during the reception. Most of these brides use two or three wedding gowns during the entire event.
