I used to love this ian stuart
@CourtneyB: It looks like Vera Wang’s 2012 line has black fit and flare gowns already
@sienna76: Thanks so much! I would love to purchase one of those gowns, but I’ve already spent $7,000 on my Vera so my budget does not allow for another full priced Vera :-/ I was hoping to find a pre-owned Vera or another designer that had black gowns similar to hers.
Thank you for your help!
@CourtneyB: i think you should check out black bridesmaid dresses or you can always get a black dress made from one of those wedding dress designer knock off places.
i googled black evening gowns and so many images came up. just refine your search for what you want.
I’m having my purple wedding dress made by a local seamstress. I would try to find someone in your area and have them make a dress like one of those Vera Wang’s…they’re gorgeous!
Best thing to do is get a black bridesmaid dress and either soup it up a little, or accessorize with a veil to set it apart as a ‘bridal’ wear.
Damn, those black dresses look nice. I was confused when I read the title, then I saw how good they look!
@CourtneyB: Wow, you spent my entire wedding budget on your ceremony dress alone! I bet it’s beautiful though.
Have you visited local seamstresses or boutiques to see what they are capable of doing/already have? My friend bought a lower priced white wedding dress and had alterations done, along with adding tulle and lace to make it blue. I bet you could do something similar if you are opened to it being partly white…
@CourtneyB: These are all dresses (Formal Wear to be exact) at Nordstroms.com. They are retunable too if they don’t fit!
(Comes in black)
^^That one comes in a dark gray, not black
Have you tried Wedding Dress Fantasy? They make dresses in all colours, including black. Here are some:
Check out this girl’s black wedding dress. I personally think it’s amazing and that’s coming from someone who honestly wouldn’t wear a black gown.
It’s Mori Lee 1651
I think Oriel by Modeca is beautiful. Classy. Less dramatic than the Vera though but also heaps cheaper
