Wedding dresses, especially, often stray from contemporary fashion, emulating instead Victorian or other historical styles.

Various colors and patterns graced wedding outfits until the mid nineteenth century. When Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840, she wore white, thus influencing wedding style for most of the Western world.
