Bridal fetish is the sexual arousal by or sexual interest in female brides. Bridal fetish is not specifically a male fetish although it is more typically seen in men.
For those who have a bridal fetish, there are two sources of sexual desire and arousal. The first source is the color of the gown. The bride traditionally wears white to signify purity or virginity. The second source is what the dress signifies. The white dress is a sign of her unavailability. For many men, this is an element that adds attraction toward the female. The bride’s exclusivity is seen as highly attractive.
