Black Wedding Dresses - Fun and Trendy for Today's Bride

The holidays have traditionally been a time when we want to wear our finest clothes. The formal look of black and white for men, women and children has always been an essential color scheme.

Black for Bridesmaids

Finding black dresses for your bridesmaids is a relatively easy thing to do. Black is everywhere for evening and formal wear and your bridal party will appreciate if the style is one they will wear again.

Black Wedding Dresses

Shopping for a black wedding gown will be significantly more challenging however more designers are adding color to their collections. Finding a black and white gown is easier than a pure black one, but finding an all-black gown can be done if you are persistent.

Unfortunately due to the limited supply also come limited styles. When you find the perfect black gown – buy it!

If you can’t find what you are looking for in traditional bridal shops or online, consider an evening gown. You can work with a seamstress to add crystals and other embellishments to add glamor. And with additional accessories such as gloves, jewelery and a hair piece you will still get a fabulous gown for a great price.

Bridal Party Dress Combinations

If you are wearing a black gown yourself, then you will want to carefully consider the colour for your bridal party.

Ivory dresses with black accents would be lovely. Purple or amethyst is gaining in popularity and would be a dazzling combination.

Since every color looks great with black your choices are really endless. However the deeper shades of blue, brown and green may be too similar to black in dimmed lighting.

As black wedding dresses become more popular, the selection will also rise. However it is unlikely they will ever be as popular as white or ivory gowns and therefore the selection will never be as extensive.
