The color of nuptial suits in the history
The tradition of the white dress for the bride goes back to the eight hundreds and represents virginity and purity.
Roman brides were wound by yellow and orange veils.
The Chinese women dressed in red.
Today red is still the nuptial color of the Indian brides.
Longobardes brides dressed only in a black tunic.
The Byzantine brides of the richest classes wore dresses of red silk with embroideries in gold and precious stones.
In the Middle Age and in the Renaissance the nuptial suits were very colored, so that they could be worn subsequently, during parties.
The color mostly used, in every way, was red, because it is believed to propitiate births. Today besides the color white beige is also popular.
