In a viral TikTok, a bridal party dressed in all white have their first look of the bride, who showed off her unconventional wedding dress which was a pinkish color.

For western weddings, it’s tradition for the bride to wear pure white, and for the other members of the bridal party to avoid wearing white as to not draw attention away from the bride. According to western beliefs, the color white is supposed to represent purity and virtue, symbolizing the woman’s chastity.

In a viral Tiktok, a bride chose to do the exact opposite of the traditional norms. Instead of wearing white herself, she had the rest of her bridal party dress in white, while she wore a pinkish peach dress.
