Be­fore the 19th cen­tury, there was no uni­form color and style for wed­ding dresses for Western girls un­til the sen­sa­tional royal wed­ding in 1840. Queen Vic­to­ria amazed all the peo­ple with a white dress made of Chi­nese bro­cades.

19世纪以前,西方的少女们出嫁时所穿的新娘礼服没有统一颜色规格,直至1840年那场轰动全球的世纪婚礼。英国维多利亚女王身着一袭由漂亮的中国锦缎制作而成的白色礼服,惊艳全场。
