Black Wedding Dresses
While wedding dresses are typically white, black wedding dresses are becoming increasingly popular. If you never envisioned yourself wearing white on your wedding day, there are more alternatives than ever! Every woman needs a little black dress. Therefore, why not wear a stylish black dress on your wedding day? Before you clutch your pearls about wearing black on your wedding day, take a look at these beautiful, black wedding dresses!
First Inspiration Dress: Maggie Sottero, “Watson” dress
We love the gorgeous, floral details of “Watson” by Maggie Sottero. The nude fabric softens the look of the black tulle. The flowers, made from sequin-embroidered horsehair, give a nod to classic lace but add a modern touch to the wedding dress.
Second Inspiration Dress: Norvinia by Sottero & Midgely
If you want the uniqueness of black details on your wedding dress but still love the classic, white look of a wedding dress, the “Norvinia” dress by Sottero & Midgley is perfect for you! With its light sparkle tulle underneath and the black lace appliques on top, it’s a perfect balance of still feeling like a classic bride, while giving a small nod to the black wedding dress trend.
Third Inspiration Dress: SDWG0970 by David’s Bridal
If you love a vintage look, a classic, tea-length, satin wedding dress is the perfect option for you! You will look back for years and still love your wedding dress. If you’re not a fan of lace, satin is the perfect alternative. If you’re wearing a solid, black wedding dress, we recommend you ask guests to not wear black. Then, you still get to stand out as the bride with your unique gown.
See? There are so many beautiful, black wedding dress options! There is no need to wear white if it doesn’t feel like you. Alternatively, if you’ve never considered wearing black on your wedding day, you now know there are more beautiful options if you’re willing to widen your horizons.
