A friend of mine just had a wedding and all her Bridesmaid or Best Man wore black.  It was beautiful!

We did black dresses as well.  My Maid/Matron of Honor wore strapless, and my 2 BM’s wore halter style (they were ‘blessed’ ontop as well, and found this style worked best on them).  We had them altered to be tea-length.  I LOVE the idea of the hot pink heels!

Love the hot pink shoes idea. Not sure what your weather will be like, but how about adding a shawl/pashmina and a brooch?

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my brother’s wedding and my SIL did was have us all get knee-length black dresses and then she gave us matching shawls in turquoise so that we had some uniformity. It was great.

I wore a black Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in my brothers wedding and it was great.  Not sure the designer but it was a satin dress and we all looked and felt great! I think its a wonderful idea!

Love this idea! I’m considering it although idk if it works w/my bright summery wedding colors. But yes, your girls will love you for picking dresses they will definitely wear again! If I do this I’m going to pick a brand (probably BCBG max azria because their dresses all seem to have the pizzaz I’m looking for and they’re not too wedding-y at all) or a material and let each girl pick her own exact style… although I’ll have final approval! I’m hoping we can do a big girls shopping trip so that I can see them all together and make sre it works… we’ll see though, I have a ways to go!

I’m doing black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses! I’m giving them style ideas, but I’m letting them choose the dress. We’re having a beach wedding, so it will be more casual.

This one is my favorite.

My sister had us in black for her wedding. Honestly, this is the most popular dress ever from DB, but I also think it’s one of the most flattering: Black is one of my faves for weddings – so flattering, universal, and wearable!

1st pic shows that it’s straight across and I’m plus sized – If it fits right and is altered correctly – no bulging out anywhere!

My bridesmaids are wearing all black. I think it looks clean and elegant. Not all agree but I really love the look of it. Here is the dress my girls are wearing .

I have black bridesmaids dresses!!! I love them.  I love black as a color to wear and I am slightly jealous I’m wearing white and not black! My bm’s are wearing the same dress that missmain posted pics of from Davids Bridal.  For the ceremony me and my bridesmaids shoulders need to be covered so I’m currently toying between satin shawls or fur shawls.

Yup, we’re doing all black. Girls in black, guys in black. Nothing wrong with it at all.
