The white wedding dress has symbolised purity and virginity in the West for centuries, despite the shifting fashion trends. Today that symbol seems forgotten, is it even still relevant? Now pre-marital sex has become an everyday thing, and become widely accepted in contemporary western society. Today most women marrying in white dresses are no longer virgins and virginity is no longer a requirement for a suitable wife. The dress has been photographed on women placed in everyday situations to signify how the dress has lost its value, its significance and most importantly its symbolism, due to the way that pre-marital sex has become an everyday thing.
