Zhou Dynasty Wedding Dress Illustration

Zhou dynasty’s wedding dress was not red, but black.
The wedding dress at that time, regardless of male and female, was mainly black and followed the Xuanxun (Chinese: 玄纁 ; pinyin: xuán xūn) system.
The ancients believed that the sky is black (Xuan) and the earth is scarlet/light red (Xun).
Wearing heaven and earth on the body is the greatest respect. Even the horse the groom was riding was black.
