This Iconic Wedding Tradition Can Be Traced All The Way Back To Queen Victoria

  This Iconic Wedding Tradition Can Be Traced All The Way Back To Queen Victoria Queen Victoria popularized a wedding tradition that is still followed today.When it comes to the gown, brides have a number of styles to choose from, such as a ball gown, an A-line dress, an empire line, or the trumpet gown, but despite the simplicity or complexity of the design, one thing they have in common is the color. Brides typically choose the color white or variations of ivory. The color symbolizes innocence, purity, and perfection (via Symbol Sage). However, the trend wasn't popular until the mid-19th century.

While the wedding itself was closed to the press, Naomi and the first lady spoke with Vogue in the days leading up to the celebration for a cover story published Tuesday.

Naomi shared that her "Nana" was "super involved" in the wedding planning, much of which took place over SoulCycle classes and evening glasses of wine.

"She has really stressed to me that every time I get anxious about wedding stuff to take a breath and remember that it's just a day about Peter and me and being around the people we love," Naomi told the magazine. "She's taught me so much about being independent and self-sufficient. But that doesn't mean you can't also be a selfless and fiercely loyal partner."

Biden also shared the marriage advice she gave her granddaughter: "Maintain your independence."

That advice appears to have worked well for the president and first lady, who have been married for 45 years. It is the second marriage for both. The president lost his first wife and daughter in a 1972 car crash. Jill Biden divorced her first husband after five years and married Joe Biden two years later.

Jill Biden felt "lost" when her first marriage ended, she wrote in her book "Where the Light Enters," explaining they were young and quickly grew apart.

"It was at this point that I learned how essential it is to be financially independent, especially as a woman," she wrote. "My daughter would tell you that I drilled this message into her from an early age."

Jill Biden has a doctorate in education and fulfills her duties as first lady in between the writing classes she teaches at Northern Virginia Community College. Her stamp on the role is groundbreaking as the first president's wife to continue her professional career as first lady.

She wrote that she stresses this message of independence to the women in her class and the young female students that she mentors. "That, and the fact that you can't always prepare for what life brings you," she wrote.
