My mother always said, ‘You never wear black to a wedding’, but I say, if you are the bride, go for it!
When you think of a wedding, the first image that might come to your mind is a blindingly white wedding dress with a long train and either frills or laces. Talk about immaculate! But who said every bride absolutely needs to wear white on her wedding? Who said frills and laces only go with white?
I think a bride can wear any colour of wedding dress that she wants, so we thought of looking for beautiful black wedding dresses, too. After all, anyone can wear black and it is a classic. Here are the dresses that we’re currently drooling over!
1. Rami Kadi Fall Collection Wedding Dress
Ooh, the layers and the ruffles of this black wedding dress are to-die-for! So elegant!
2. See-Through Long-Sleeve Gown
The sheer material exudes sexiness, which is balanced out by the dress’ cut and length.
3. Red and Black Wedding Dress
Va va voom! The combination of red and black certainly makes one fierce bride!
4. Wedding Dress Fantasy by Tova
Living up to its name, this fantasy-themed dress will make a bride feel like a fairy.

7. Black Mermaid Wedding Dress
The combination of tulle and a plunging neckline turns any bride into an attention-commanding vixen.
8. Black and White Victorian Wedding Dress
If you’re into Victorian (and stripes) (like I do), this dress is for you. The Victorian haughty attitude is optional!
9. Cherie Sposa 2012 Wedding Dress
