    I think she should go for it, if that’s what she wants! Her wedding, her rules 🙂 Personally, I wouldn’t do it but that’s just my preference.

    I was at a wedding last month where the bride wore a black dress and she looked spectacular.

    Tell her to wear what makes her happy.

    It is the only time in your life you can really wear a big white dress… I mean, there are other occasions she could wear a big black dress, such as a winter ball, or a military dinner. So I think she could be missing out.

    But then, who am I to judge? I love black formalwear and I’m sure she will look fantastic!

    im not a fan of black dresses. maybe for the reception if its at night, but during daylight it just looks kind of strange to me

    it also depends on the style – a simple black sheath, maybe. but anything poofy…no

    Not for me but I think David Tutera has done a good job making black wedding dresses look bridal without upsetting the brides.  Maybe she would compromise and wear a white gown for the ceremony to please the family but wear black for the reception.  My only concern would be getting a black dress that is flashy enough to stand out in a crowd so my guests can find me during the reception.

    Love Vera’s Black Fall 2012 line. I was tempted to get a color myself, but wasn’t sure if I’d regret it later.

    I think black wedding gowns can be gorgeous. But one thing to remember, Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black wedding dress, years later she said that she really regretted it. If your cousin thinks that she will still love it years later, than you go girl gor for it!!!

    I voted I wouldn’t wear it, but I would admire it on someone else. I will get to wear a colorful & mostly red getup for a cultural ceremony we are doing at the reception, so I guess I kind of get the best of both worlds.

    If she is paying for her dress, then her parents don’t really get a say in the matter. But if her parents are ponying up the cash, she will need to compromise on this one.

    I love black. It’s a rare occasion for me to not be wearing at least one black garment. What can I say? It’s my color. That said,  a black wedding dress just wasn’t for me. But I did wear a black silk shrug for many of my portraits, all of my ceremony, and most of my reception. I also wore a huge black onyx cocktail ring and painted my nails a deep purple that was almost black. I found ways to incorporate my color while keeping with tradition. And for our private vow renewal in a few years, black is definitely an option I will consider.

    I wear black often also. I would have liked a wedding dress with at least a little black on it but since I wore a white one, I wore a black shrug with it and it looked great! I say if your cousin wants an all black dress or one with black on it she should go for it.

    I can’t see it. I love different color wedding dresses but all black just looks creepy to me. It has that Elvira vibe going on.  Even the picture that’s been posted channels has a black widow. Like she just killed her husband, walked out of the house, and now she’s looking at you with that evil stare. Embarassed LOL. I can see how that’s over the top but that’s the creepy, evil vibe I get when I see a black wedding dress. I fear for the husband. That being said, I love the white and black ones.

    In the end it’s her wedding, she needs to do what makes her happy. And people will definitely be talking about her wedding for generations to come. I can hear the “you remember when (NAME) wore that black dress to her wedding? It was….”

    Personally I would say do whatever is in your heart because it’s your day. Now parent-wise I would say go with another tone like blush or pale blue, I think the bold black scares them and isn’t something they pictured their daughter in on her wedding day!
