This look is not for everyone – even if you don’t consider yourself to be of the traditional mindset you might find it hard to wrap your mind around the concept of a black wedding dress. It has been ingrained in our culture that white is a must, but think for a moment on the fact that grooms almost always wear black… Autumn is the perfect time for a black dress because the deeper flower colors go beautifully with it, Halloween might be your favorite holiday, or it is simply a reflection of darker nights and the beauty found in a darker season. I say if you love black, then at least allow yourself to try on a black dress and see how you feel in it. Keep in mind there are many ways to wear black, whether it be in a solid fabric, layered with white or other colors, or to simply accessorize with black over a white dress. You might also choose to wear black as a second dress at your reception if you want to keep your ceremony more traditional. What do you think? Would you wear black on your wedding day?
