      White wedding dresses: why they are so popular

      White wedding dresses have a long tradition and are considered the epitome of purity, innocence and elegance. For centuries, brides around the world have chosen white dresses for their special day, and this choice is deeply rooted in history and culture.

      The tradition of the white wedding dress goes back to Queen Victoria of England, who married Prince Albert in 1840. She wore a royal blue wedding dress, which was unusual at the time. But it was her white lace dress that sparked a fashion wave and helped white wedding dresses become a symbol of weddings. Since then, white wedding dresses have established themselves as a timeless choice.

      In addition to purity and innocence, white wedding dresses also symbolize hope for a happy future. They radiate a certain elegance and simplicity that fit perfectly with the festive occasion of a wedding. White dresses are often associated with traditional weddings, but they are also very popular with modern brides who appreciate the classic look.

      It is important to note that not all white is the same - there are different shades ranging from pure white to snow white to ivory to cream and champagne tones. White is also often combined with blush or soft pink lining, which provides a subtle touch of colour.

      There are a variety of white wedding dresses available, encompassing a wide range of styles, cuts and details. Here are some of the most common types of white wedding dresses:

      - A-line: The A-line wedding dress is a classic choice that stands out for its flattering silhouette. It's fitted at the waist and then flares out towards the bottom, creating an A-shape. This cut suits most body types and is both elegant and timeless.
      - Ballgown: The ultimate fairytale dress, the ballgown features a fitted bodice and a full, voluminous skirt. It is ideal for brides who want to make a dramatic statement and is particularly suitable for formal weddings.
      - Mermaid/Mermaid: The mermaid dress accentuates the bride's curves and hugs her figure up to mid-thigh before it flares out. This silhouette is very feminine and gives an elegant, sensual touch.
      - Sheath/Column: The sheath or column dress has a slim, straight line that runs close to the body. It is perfect for modern, minimalist brides who prefer a simple and elegant look.
      - Empire: The empire dress has a high waist that falls just below the bust and a flowing, usually loose skirt. This style is ideal for pregnant brides or those looking for a casual, romantic look.
      - Princess: Similar to the ball gown but less voluminous, the princess dress offers a fairytale look with a fitted bodice and flared skirt. It is a popular choice for brides who prefer a royal elegance.
      - Vintage/Retro: Vintage-inspired wedding dresses draw inspiration from decades past and offer a nostalgic aesthetic. They can include elements such as lace, beading and vintage cuts and are perfect for brides looking for a unique, timeless look.
      - Boho: Boho wedding dresses are loosely cut and often have a relaxed, natural look. They are perfect for romantic, outdoor weddings and can include elements such as lace, floral patterns and flowing fabrics.

      How to find your perfect white wedding gown

      Finding the perfect white wedding dress can be an exciting but also challenging experience. Here are some important points to keep in mind:

      - Budget: Set a realistic budget for your wedding dress. It is important that you stay within your financial means and take additional costs such as modifications and accessories into account.
      - Style and preferences: Think in advance about what style of wedding dress you prefer. Do you prefer simple, modern dresses or do you dream of a romantic, opulent ball gown? Setting a rough style can make searching a lot easier.
      - Body type and fit: Take your body shape into account and choose a wedding dress that flatters your figure. Try out different cuts and silhouettes to find what suits you best.
      - Timeline: Start looking for your wedding dress early, preferably six to nine months before the wedding. This gives you enough time to explore different options, do fittings and make any changes. We have summarized in a short article how a wedding dress consultation at noni works.
      - Location and theme of the wedding: Consider the location and theme of your wedding when choosing your wedding dress. An elegant ball gown may be more appropriate for a formal castle wedding, while a light, flowy dress is perfect for a beach wedding.
      - Comfort: Make sure you feel comfortable in your wedding dress and can move freely. Remember that you will be spending the whole day in it, so it is important that you feel relaxed and confident in it.
      - Accessories and details: Think about what type of accessories you want to wear with your wedding dress, such as veils, jewelry, shoes, and hair accessories. Make sure they fit well with the style of your dress and emphasize your personality.

      Which bridal accessories go best with white wedding dresses?

      White wedding dresses are paired with a variety of accessories, shoes, and makeup options that can complete and perfect the look. Here are some ideas of what goes with white wedding dresses:

      - Veil: A veil is a classic accessory that goes perfectly with a white wedding dress. There are different lengths and styles, from birdcages, short veils to long, floating veils that create a dramatic effect.
      - Jewelry: Choose jewelry that complements your personal style and doesn't distract from the dress. Pearls, diamonds and delicate gold or silver jewelry go well with white wedding dresses and give them an elegant touch. Metallic tones in particular create an exciting contrast to the clean white of your wedding dress.
      - Hair Accessories: From flower crowns to headbands to delicate hairpins, there are many options for hair accessories to complement the wedding dress. Choose something that fits your wedding theme and hairstyle.

      - Shoes: Choose comfortable but stylish shoes that match your wedding dress. White or ivory pumps, sandals, or ballet flats are popular options, but you can also choose colored shoes that add a touch of personality.
      - Belt or sash: A bridal belt or sash around the waist can add definition to the wedding dress and emphasize your figure. Choose a ribbon in a color or fabric that matches the dress, or add some sparkle with a sparkly belt.
      - Capes, jackets or boleros: For weddings in cooler climates or evening events, you can wear a jacket or bolero over your wedding dress. You can find bridal capes in different designs, from simple to romantic to dramatic with a long train.
      - Make-up: Choose make-up that enhances your natural glow and flatters your wedding dress. Classic, timeless looks with emphasized eyes and a natural complexion go well with white wedding dresses.
      - Bouquet: A bouquet of flowers is the ultimate accessory for the bride and should match her wedding dress. Choose flowers and colors that complement the style and color palette of your wedding.

      Ultimately, it's important to choose accessories and details that match your personal style and the style of your wedding dress. Experiment with different options and choose what feels best for you.
