About This Quiz

Let's face it; weddings are a big deal! Two different families and sets of friends come together to celebrate the love of one special couple. Whether it's through dancing, giving gifts or embarrassing speeches, all weddings are meant to be an event that the happy couple will remember forever. And while traditions vary around the world, one thing that all have in common is the dress - whether it's white or rainbow-colored.
