Do you know why the traditional wedding dress is white? Off for the Honeymoon was painted by the British artist Frederick Morgan (1847-1927). It shows a happy couple descending the church stairs in the village of Bonchurch on the Isle of Wright. These are surrounded by nine girls and two boys (one of them being the son of the artist). They are children of some of the guests we see in the background. The bride is dressed in a white dress, something that was largely a Victorian invention. The idea was that the bride would look angelic in white, which symbolized her innocence in the eyes of the church and her new husband. This trend was started by Queen Victoria, who married in white in 1840. And just like the bridesmaids in this painting, the bridesmaids of Queen Victoria were also dressed in white. There are other explanations as to why white is the traditional color for the wedding dress in many cultures, and these may differ across the world.
