White wedding gowns were popularized by Queen Victoria when she married Prince Albert. Black tuxedos are also a carry over from Victorian formalwear. That's why they have tails.
Obviously you can choose to keep or toss as many wedding traditions as you like during your wedding. I recently read an article all about black wedding dresses if that gives you an idea of how far we're moving from tradition.1
