It’s an age-old tradition for bridesmaids to wear matching dresses, but there is actually a reason why...
Patrick Jones from Buzz60 found that the reason dates back to Ancient Rome.
“The custom dates all the way back to ancient Rome, when everyone in the bridal party, including the bride herself, wore matching outfits. That way, anyone trying to make off with the bride - be it another suitor or just an evil spirit - would be confused, and unable to determine which one was the newly wedded woman.”
Such an interesting reason, and one that we would have never guessed!
