“White weddings weren’t always the norm in Western culture,” I Do Radio host Angela Chester explains in her series on connubial couture. “One of the first women to walk down the aisle in white was Mary Queen of Scots, when she married Francois II of France in 1558. Considered inauspicious, white was at that time the official color of mourning in France. It didn’t become popular until 1840, after the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe. Victoria wore a white gown as a way to incorporate some lace from her own closet that she loved.”
