White was never meant to signify purity. Before Queen Victoria wed in a white gown, it wasn't even that common. Women would generally just wear their best outfit or the most expensive new outfit they could afford. Color wasn't an issue. It is really just personal preference.

White used to signify purity (guess what that means). If you weren't "pure" you wore Ivory. But I don't think that is the case anymore. You just wear what you want and what you like.

Originally white signified purity and ivory was worn by brides married before. However, now days brides have broken that tradition and simply wear what they like and feel is more fitting to their theme. For example, most brides will opt to wear an ivory or champagne colored gown for a victorian wedding.

White dresses signify purity, as in that the bride is still a virgin, however, that tradition has fallen away and for the most part everyone just wears white or off white.

Very much so with the previous posts of white meaning "purity". I've only heard of a blue wedding dress meaning "devotion" , relation to the term of "something borrowed something blue". If that helps at all

Also, traditionally you do not wear a white wedding dress if it's your second wedding.
