Black is the New Ivory
You’ve heard of the LBD–a wardrobe must-have for every woman. Why? Black works for every type of event, it’s universally flattering, and it never goes out of style. Seriously, think about it…your favorite go-to cocktail dress. Black, right? So, while a black wedding gown may seem revolutionary, it actually makes perfect sense! That’s why when we saw a parade of black wedding dresses hit the runway at bridal fashion week, we made sure to snatch up A TON because we knew our brides have what it takes to rock them down the white carpet.
The Perks of Wearing Black
More Defined Patterns
If you were hoping to wear lace for your big day, then you’ll be happy to know that (in our opinion) almost every lace looks better in black. Because they tend to be lined in lighter colors, the contrast of the black lace against the lighter background makes the pattern stand out even more.
Marks Show Up Less
If you’re one of those brides that’s worried about your gown getting dirty (which is inevitable), then getting a black gown is definitely the right move. Whether it’s dirt on the hem from the dance floor or the inevitable drop of champagne, everything shows up less on black fabric.
It’s also well-known that black is a universally flattering color. The dark shade is slimming and looks good on every skin tone. It also never goes out of style. So while you may be pushing the traditional “boundaries” of bridal fashion, opting for a black dress is still a timeless look.
And if you’re wondering if by forgoing the traditional white or ivory dress that you’ll be missing those “bridal vibes”, think again. While these dresses are black, they are most definitely still bridal gowns. From the dramatic silhouettes to the epic trains, there will be no mistaking who the bride is on your big day.
