WATERBURY, Ct. — The proper bride wears white and plenty of it, according to one church.
The oldest Catholic church in Waterbury is warning that brides better not dare to be bare.
The Immaculate Conception Church won’t permit bridal gowns with bare backs or shoulders.
The same dress code applies to bridesmaids, too.
The Rev. John Bevins said some brides-to-be were coming to church half dressed. He said revealing gowns aren’t appropriate for a church service. So, Bevins instituted the policy a year ago.
The dress code was published in the church newsletter so there would be no wedding day surprises.
