White has long been the traditional color worn by brides at royal weddings, but the white wedding gown for ordinary people appeared in the 19th century.  Before that time, most brides wore their Sunday best, of whatever color.  The white lace wedding gown of Queen Victoria in 1840 had a large impact on the color and fashion of wedding dresses in both Europe and America down to the present day.  Enjoy!
