Lots of people have black dresses and I think they always look good.  But if the only reason you want to go with black is because you can’t think of a good color to go with lavender, then there are plenty of other colors.    What kind of look are you going for?  pastels?  how about peach or a vintage gold or yellow.  something bolder?  a deep purple or a royal blue.  there are so many options.  good luck!11

I absolutely LOVE the idea of black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses… I’m considering it for my own wedding. I think black is classy, no matter what the season, but obviously since it’s summer, you wouldn’t want a super heavy material or shape.

 What style/silhouette are you thinking about?

im having a june wedding and my girls are wearing black.  theyre all wearing their own dresses, so each of their individual styles can shine.

its a great idea and timeless, too!

I’m going the black bm dress route as well.  Like sahcha, I wanted each girl to look as beautiful and different as they really are.  I also wanted something that would acutally be reusable, and who doesn’t need a black dress?  I’m having a formal wedding, so their dresses will be floor length,  and I’ll be having a lot of fun with contrasting colors.

 I’d say definitely go for the black dresses and have fun!

I love black for summer!  It really allows the flower colors to POP.  We’re doing black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses as well, and BRIGHT florals — purple, orange, red and light green.

Just make sure the fabric’s light, and the cut/length seasonally appropriate.

I’m doing long black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses- in May, in FL, I might add. I picked a light taffeta material so they are very light weight and they flow very well. I think that black will look very elegant and sophisticated, when done correctly. I know that tea length black can look super cute with a pop of color for the shoes (or even fun and funky black and gold or silver and gold shoes). I wanted floor length dresses because my wedding is pretty formal. Just make sure that the material is the right one for your date, location, etc etc.

My wedding is in June, and I’m having black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.  My flowers and accents are bright colors so they will pop against the black.

Black is original.  In many far eastern cultures white signifies death and is worn at a funeral (never at a wedding)! 

I had a customer who ordered custom wedding rings with black diamonds.  She was sort of goth, with black lipstick and nail polish, black hair…  Both his and hers were rings with black diamonds. They can be viewed at   http://www.maidstonejewelry.com/rings/index.htm  Item R372/373 (left lower corner). 

Good luck with your wedding.

I had a cousin who got married last June and had beautiful black bridesmaid dresses. The girls looked really nice and if you do lavender flowers, they would really pop against the dark background. If you’re really set on lavender, you could look at all the different color combos others have done too.. I’ve seen some really nice weddings with lavendar and sage green combined.

very different. i like the idea. when i first heard of it 2-3 years ago, i found it weird, but after looking at millions of bm dresses the last few weeks, i would tell anyone to go for it!!
