Always thought red was the color of love

As an Indian Hindu I can confirm that red is often used to symbolise joy in our culture. It signifies strength, wealth, prosperity and joy. Wedding invitations are printed in red. Diwali cards are written in red. Gifts of money are given in red envelopes, etc.

It's because red is the color of good luck!

Agree with M1LI1E. To add to that, Red is the colour of life (colour of blood). Also, our religious powder called as 'Kumkum" is also red in colour hence it is considered an auspicious colour for functions and festivals. Another relevance is Red is a pure primary colour (it doesn't have many lighter gradations to it which makes it one of the boldest and virgin colours per say).
So it is a symbol of a new begining, a new start for life.

As an Indian, I never thought of the question "Why Red?". Red is one of the most dynamic colors. It is always used for most religious and festival occasions. Can't imagine Divali or Holi without red, or a bride not in red(Indian brides wear 5 or more dresses during the wedding ceremony). Only Telugu girls wear white during the actual wedding. Can't imagine a wedding in any other color in India!

I thought red was to symbolize everlasting love, and white symbolizes purity.

I love the fact that it is Red! I think it is stunning and Indian brides always look amazing. My question is regarding the headpiece and jewels, what are these a symbol of if they are and are they only worn for the wedding?

I've had the amusement out for individuals for about a year or thereabouts, just for g4wow Outland gold g4wow.com get their musings on the littlest things. Like how can it grope picking and dropping weapons? A considerable measure of the criticism was that it felt kind of cumbersome, grabbing and dropping things, and despite the fact that I burned through two months dealing with that framework, I wound up rejecting it. It simply wasn't adding for wow Outland gold the get and-play, natural feel that I'm searching for."
