27 Beautiful Black Wedding DressesThis might change your mind about traditional white dresses!

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!

It has built-in cups for better support of the bust with a special no-strap technology and despite the fact it’s a backless dress provides an awesome shaping and very comfortable support.
