Having a afternoon wedding in Florida summer outside on the deck of a pirate ship vs inside a church with air-conditioning is very different.
Half of all the women go with the modern tradition of a white wedding dress, but the tradition of a white wedding dress didn't come to be until 1840, when Queen Victoria got married in one. During the Golden Age of Piracy 1680-1720, the wedding dress what just the finest dress the lady owned, which tended to be a colorful formal gown. Red brocaded gowns embroidered with gold or silver being very popular. Wear of a white dress that would easily get dirty, would be considered too impractical.
