I was watching the movie Sleepless in Seattle on TV last night when the thought struck (and to be honest, it's quite annoying when your mind suddenly think of something and you have to go google for answer ASAP).

And there is an old poem about how the color of your wedding dress could affect your marriage:
Married in white, you will have chosen all right.
Married in grey , you will go far away.
Married in black, you will wish yourself back.
Married in red, you’ll wish yourself dead.
Married in pearl, you’ll live in a whirl.
Married in green, ashamed to be seen,
Married in yellow, ashamed of the fellow.
Married in brown, you’ll live out of town.
Married in pink, your spirits will sink.
Apart from wealth, white is also associated with virginity, innocence and happiness.
Ironic, given the diminishing faction of ladies who remain virgin until marriage nowadays.
