I'm Seeing Red!!!

Today is National Wear Red Day®—Friday, February 4, 2011—millions will help spread the critical message that "Heart Disease Doesn't Care What You Wear—It's the #1 Killer of Women.®" The Red Dress®, the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, was created by The Heart Truth in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women.  In observation of Women's Heart Health Day we're focusing on RED!!! 
 U.S. Brides today are a tab bit more liberal then in years past BUT still generally choose beige, white or ecru wedding dresses. Etiquette requires that guests avoid wearing white, but they may wear other colors. When deciding on attire, it is most important to not "outshine the bride" and to wear clothing suitable to the style (casual or formal), time (day or evening) and location of the wedding.
In China, red symbolizes good luck and happiness and is pervasive throughout the wedding. Although some brides wear white, the majority still wear the traditional red, high-necked dress to walk down the aisle. It is called a cheongsam or qipao.

 Indians also believe that red brings happiness and luck to the bride and groom. Bridal dresses are red and decorated with beads, sequins or intricate designs. There are three types of wedding gowns: the Sari, a long piece of cloth that is wrapped around the body; the Ghagra choli, a long skirt and chemise combined with a scarf; and a Shalwar kameez, pants covered by a long tunic.
