LOL, the same applies for Chinese weddings!
red is ......
don't know. but girls wear it!!!
have 2 find the reason
@speakin_colors; LOL, I meant the color red.
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?
In Hindu weddings Red colored saree is must for the bride at the time when actual rounds take place on all sides of fire. It is a symbol of holy
red is the color of joy. It gives bride a elegant look.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Well, I dropped a note on twitter speaking about the problems, but I think they had already fixed it when I did. So that's good!


Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.

Edit: Suddenly they're back this morning. CL is so confusing lol.

I too am having capcha problems and cannot post palettes or patterns. It simply doesn't appear so I get the "invalid capcha" error every time. It doesn't show up on Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, IE, or Chromium. (Yes I tried them all!) I don't even know if this is going to get posted without the capcha :/


Thank you. I don't currently have a twitter account, and to make things even worse, trying to fix things yesterday before realizing it was a problem for everyone, I went in and deleted my cookies for the site and that glitched it up even further. Now I have an "accept cookies" pop up that no matter how many times I click won't go away, and today it seems I can't even log on that device (I'm typing this on my phone) -I try but it keeps taking me back to the log in.

What did I do lol?

Edit: my device is a 5th generation ipad running on 10.3.3

The capcha is back for me this morning, using Chrome at least. Hope it's working for you again too!
