IF you’ve got some summer weddings coming up then pay attention.
It turns out it’s not just white that is off limits at a wedding and it’s all because of an old age tradition.
The Unfiltered Bride Podcast on TikTok has revealed wearing another colour could be interpreted as a revealing statement.
While discussing colour-etiquette, host Beth asked: “So are there any other colours apart from white you shouldn’t wear at a wedding?”
Georgie “Yes. Red.”
It turns out the colour is not just a no-go because it makes you stand out.
Georgie said: “Why? Red means you’ve slept with a groom.“
The host revealed the colour is off limits due to an old wives tale.
“[It’s an] Old wives tale but yeah, if you wear red. To me I don’t think that I would rule out red as a colour. I think it depends on the dress.“
The pair both agreed even without the superstition going to a wedding in red would at the very least be considered provocative.
“I feel like red can be seen as quite sexy. Sexy? Like a bit look at me, a bit naughty? Yeah.”
The colour can also be associated with trying to upstage the bride as well as a symbol of bad omens.

Many believe the coloured red and white represent blood and bandages.
Whilst getting married in red could be interpreted as welcoming death into your marriage.
The podcast clip has since gone viral with over 1 million views.
Many users were shocked to learn the dark superstitions behind the colour at weddings.
One user said: “My Mum told me the no go colours for a wedding guest (in the UK at least) are – White, Black, Red and Navy.”
Another said: “Only in America in different cultures, red means luck, joy or happiness.”
“My bridesmaids dresses are red,” said one bride-to-be.
A fourth commenter confessed: “Not me wearing a red dress to one of my best friends’ weddings.”
