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.

@Sandollar: The Marchesa gown is gorgeous…I love Marchesa! I can’t imagine how much that dress must cost!

Here are a few from the site I am getting my dress from.

There are lots more that can be done in black. Come to think of it, all their dresses can be made in black. And the ones I listed above are all under $200.

Good Luck dress shopping, and please post pics of your dress when you decide. I think it sounds pretty awesome!

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.

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