    While in theory the black dress isnt bad, I dont find that particular one to be that spectacular for a wedding.

    @chasesgirl:  I agree. It’s too simple and looks like any old dress.

    I think you could wear that particular dress anywhere, for any occassion.  I don’t mind the idea of a black dress and though I personaly wouldn’t wear one, you gotta do what works for you!  A sparkly belt might help jazz it up a bit 🙂

    I like it! The flowy overlay is just classy enough for a courthouse wedding!

    I agree with pp, it’s not the color as much the dress itself.  Very plain.  I know it’s not a big wedding, but it’s still a special occasion.  I love some of the ones on your other thread though.

    Black dresses CAN work IF you get one that is special enough–however, I don’t think that dress is it. I think you may end up looking back and regretting not getting to wear something more bridal. 

    The key to an untraditional wedding dress is to pick the RIGHT dress, one that feels special, bridal and romantic…ESPECIALLY if you do end up wearing black. You want to look happy and like a bride on your wedding day–not like you’re going to a funeral or a Halloween party.  Just saying. 

    Check out Enzoani’s Oriel. It’s STUNNING.

    I wore a black dress for a simple civil ceremony at a restaurant. I loved it and I have worn it again! Go for it!

    @missebelle:  I think that PP’s are saying is that even if you aren’t wanting a “weddingy” dress, you should still wear a dress that looks special, regardless of color.

    I fully support a black dress, but that particular dress looks like a swimsuit cover-up. It just is very blah to me. It doesn’t look like a new dress you bought for a special occasion.

    I think you should wear what YOU want to wear, and if that involves a black dress, then go for it!

    Go for it, it may be plain BUT you can add to it and deck it out how your see fit! Add a necklace, bracelet and a sash. Or a bolero! Are you planning on a veil? You could do a birdcage or if not, add flowers in your hair. If you really like it, go for it. Its your day, rock it girl!
