    What exactly Does the Bible actually tell us about weddings? Why can't u wear white to my wedding to a second husband? I've found nothing to support a "white" wedding purity blah blah blah statement IN the Bible! Only in a church full of "Christians" would anyone be shunned for wearing white!

    The bible mentions weddings, but does not give scripture on the way they are to be performed. If it were mentioned then the world would be bound to that method. God establishes governments for his purpose; Ezra 7:25, Titus 3:1. Each government has determined what a marriage ceremony consists of, dealing with each locations laws and customs. As far as I know marriages in one country is recognized by all countries (someone with more knowledge than I might be able to comment on that in depth). The parable of the rich ruler who gave a wedding for his son, mentions a proper wedding garment but does not identify what it is. This parable is more concerned with Christ than earthly weddings but could be applicable. Your question, indicates to me, that you are concerned about a previous marriage and your purity because of it. If your previous husband has died then you are able to remarry Rom 7:2, 1 Cor 7:2-3. If the husband is still living I do not believe that the scripture allows remarriage 1 Cor 7:11.

    White signifies purity and is the traditional color to signify the bride is a Virgin.

    The Bible does not allow sex outside of marriage except to raise up an offspring for a deceased family member.

    If she has had sex with the groom or boyfriends in the past, then she should not wear white.

    The wedding is to be within the confines of the Church and not 'allowed' by the State.

    Man has now given the State authority to decide if two people can be married.

    I said "IF" as if you have to get a license from the State, that license can be denied.
