I am planning a dark romantic wedding. Our colors are black, white, merlot, and a deep purple.
I am trying to find a black wedding dress, or a gorgeous white dress with a black sash or accent of some sort, but all of the dresses I find look super cheap.
Any help Bees?

Rather than searching for “wedding dresses” that happen to come in black, I would search for evening gowns in black.
If you want full black and you’re on a budget go for bridesmaids dresses.
If you don’t have a tight budget I would find a seamstress to make something for you.
What’s your budget? What style are you looking for? Neckline? Fabric? Silhouette?
And you can get almost any wedding dress with a black sash. Just buy it separately if it’s not offered as an option with it.

That sounds like an awesome colour scheme! I agree with a PP in not searching for ‘wedding dresses’ because that’ll really limit your options.

Can you tell I had a field day searching black gowns? Haha…there are too many! I guess you need to let us know your budget otherwise the Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta gowns will keep coming! 🙂

Maggie Sottero’s Victoriana is available in black. I think it looks very elegant.
