There is no restriction on colour. If the boy likes the girl and vice versa, that is it. No questions asked about colour, creed, race etc.

I do not know what you have understood by my response. No questions asked about the colour, I mean, they can choose whatever colour they want and invariably the wears most colourful and attractive clothes. In fact the invitees (womenfolk)also vary colourful clothes and the whole atmosphere looks with colour and pagentry.

White was the favorite for many and the traditional colour as well but I think pink or any light colour will be very nice too.

Baby pink would be a cool choice as long as your skin tone matches the colour.

White, it symbolizes purity. I think most women would like to wear white at their wedding. However, if its the second or third you might as well go a bit flashier since you are not fooling anyone.

If you were strictly old fashioned than yes it would be white. While most brides still choose to wear white, it is not unheard of for her to wear whatever colour she chooses (which is exactly how it should be). A wedding is not to be some theatrical performance, it's your day, do what you like!! A long time ago it was totally unheard of for guests or the wedding party to wear black, it has now become quite popular.

I like white or ivory for a first time bride. Beige is a good color for a second time bride. Times have changed since I was married, so I think anything really goes these days. Wear what color you like.

There you go. I too love Hindu brides. Not only most Indians have a beautiful face, their skin colour is magnificent. I dress brides at my leasure time (its my hobby). I always enjoy dressing a bride in Hindu style. They are just so beautiful.

I think white is the traditional color. When my uncle got married, his bride wear the red and something else on her dress. I was in elementary school and remember thinking that was a weird color for dress but these day, any thing bride want will be the color for her.

It all depends on the country as different countries have different traditions. In Australia, as in many other countries, the tradition is that the bride wears white which is to signify purity. However these days many brides wear whatever colour they want and even as a first time bride, many will wear another colour. I think it is up to the individual, because if the bride is more comfortable in a colour other than white, then that is her choice and she will certainly be more relaxed on her wedding day. :)

Any colour you have your heart set on. At the end of the day it’s your wedding day. You want to wear what you most feel comfortable in. However I wouldn’t like to wear anything other than white!

In different countries brides traditionally wear different colors. I think it is Japan that the bride wears red and white means something other than pure, if I recall it would be bad to wear white as a bride in Japan. But I think in the US any color would be appropriate and it is up to the bride. We don't seem to have a lot of tradition here anymore, at least none that hold us.
