The fashion for a white wedding dress comes from Greece
The white wedding dress does not gain popularity until the great discoveries of the 20th century take place. Fashion historians are of the opinion that seeing the beautiful ancient white marble statues discovered in Greece in the early 1900s has given the western world an appreciation of white, associating it with art and beauty and later, virtue and innocence. The Greeks were using white as its dominant color to represent a symbol of purity, as wedding or marriage is close to purity and unity. The masterpieces of ancient Hellenic sculptors are the reason why we still get married in white today and dream of the one day when we can be a goddess, revered and admired by everyone.
