Since the little black dress was introduced to the world of fashion, it has symbolised versatility, timelessness and carried with an understated grace.
We’re starting to see a remarkable change in colours in bridalwear and black is among the top choices for bold and alternative brides. It’s a popular choice for evening wear and suits all shape and sizes, so why not consider it for your nuptials?
There are no rules when it comes to choosing your wedding dress so if you’re not afraid to stand out and ready to make a dramatic entrance, black is for you!
As a risk taker wearing colour down the aisle, your dress speaks a lot about your personality and that you don’t conform to tradition. A black wedding gown can be so much more flattering than ivory and can be worn as an evening dress after the special day.
You don’t necessarily have to go for a ballgown just because you’re a bride. Different lengths, silhouettes and even non bridal gowns are making their way down the aisle. Whether it’s a gown with minimal detailing, relaxed textures, shorter hemlines or care-free bohemian silhouettes, we guarantee there’s a black wedding dress out there waiting for you!
If you’re looking for something more whimsical, a floaty tulle skirt with sheer sleeves will offer romantic boho vibes. A soft A-line or fit and flare skirt works well with multiple layers of billowing tulle and most importantly it flatters all body shapes. Don’t forget an illusion neckline with the right amount of sheerness to show your decolletage.
Brides who prefer minimal texture can go head to toe in crepe.
It’s chic and sophisticated and works best with stunning features like high necks, plunge necks and open backs. Elevate the sexiness with a thigh high slit to make heads turn. For winter weddings, it’s the perfect opportunity to add any sleeve style of your choice.
Brides who want to immerse themselves in a fairytale should look no further. There’s nothing like a classic twist on a breath-taking ballgown. The gloss from a silk satin makes the black ballgown even more alluring. Keep it understated and let the gown speak for itself.
For the lace loving brides, nothing says sexy and contemporary than an elegant gown adorned with romantic floral embroidery and dainty embellishment. A combination of black and nude with sheer lace sleeves works for relaxed silhouettes and corset bodices. Off-the-shoulder styles and illusion necklines can be adapted for any silhouette. Ensure you’re nipped in at the waist and fitted correctly according to your chosen silhouette as black dresses are quite slimming and you want to avoid it being on the looser side.
