Do you think a woman should wear white on her wedding day if she isn't a virgin?

Ha! I got u now. The purpose of this discussion was for me to see how people felt about this old custom. There are hardly any people who are virgins when they get married nowadays, so the stupid rrule should be done away with. ha gotcha persia! gotcha!

I haven't seen any fashion or moral police at any wedding's. If ya wanna wear white wear it. That might have been a good custom,but we live in a fast time. There are some color's no one should wear,virgin or not. I'm single ,but if my to be wife wasn't a virgin and wanted to wear white....then so be it. She'd alway's be my virgin. Like the old school r&b song..."You make me feel brand new".

I think that the white dress doesnt mean the same thing these days. I will wear white on my wedding even if I'M not a virgin. Being pure is not only to be virgin. It's more than that and it's hard to explain.

I don't think that tradition is followed today. I think that the bride should wear whatever color she wants. I wore white on my wedding day and was definately not a virgin with a 3 year old son. LOL.

I don't think nowadays white means that the bride is virgin anymore. It's just some gowns look awesome in pure white. I was a virgin when I got married but I wore peachy gown since I don't like pure white clothes. Now that I run wedding shop, I notice that more and more people choose other than white gowns but yes white is still popular along with off white.

In my opinion i think it is really depend upon the choice of the bride. It's her day and she can do whatever that will make her happy on her big day. If she feel happy wearing white gown then be it, if she want to wear other color then that',s what she's doing.Most important thing is that she's comfy and happy with what she is wearing.

I may be old fashion, but if a women is not a virgin, she should not follow tradition and where white. White is for pureness, virginity. However, there is no law that I am aware of that claims one must be a virgin to where white, of if you are not, you cannot wear it. But, it is a personal decision, it is not for me to judge. The world has become so immoral. So, it will have to be left to the bride to be what she wants. I was a virgin and I wore white proudly.

I think it is a personal choice. If a bride wants to get married in purple or black go for it, its her day let her decide. When I got married for the first time I did not wear white. When I married in 2000, I did.

white is just a traditional color that women about to get married wear but there's nothing wrong if a woman wants to wear another color. as to wearing white even when a bride is no longer a virgin, well, who cares? the color of the dress a bride wears is never and will never be a gauge if she will be a good wife and mother later on.

I almost never "should" on people. It annoys them. This is one of those cases where it depends on the "Shoulds" and "Oughts" that the bride is burdened with. I think the bride needs to be comfortable on what may be the happiest day of her life so far. Weddings are stressful enough without worrying about what's going through the minds of anybody else. It's the bride and groom that are important.

If not a virgin then I think that there are many other colors out there for them to chose from and white should not be one of those colors. Just my opinion. A little oldfashioned I guess.
