I love black dresses and my BMs will be wearing them. It’s just so easy and I’m all about making everything as simple and low stress as possible.

we were going to do black dresses but Fiance was worried the black tuxes with black dresses would look too funerally. we were going to do the convertible dresses to but when my bm and i went to davids we couldnt even figure out the 6 in 1 dress let alone a dress with a zillion possibilities.

I’ve worn black as a bridesmaid. Unfortunately, the dresses weren’t as cute as the ones you and the other bees have posted– it screamed “Bridesmaid dress”– so I’ve never worn it again after.

@magilnyc: I LOVE the look of that dress. Could you tell me where you’ve found it?

I say yay!!! I love the dress you chose!! It looks like the kind of cut and fabric that almost any woman can wear, and it’s beautiful!! But of course I’m biased….my BMs are wearing black too!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ours are black too. But whatever you’re most comfortable with is what’s important!

i’m waking up this thread with a question for those who did do black/are planning to – did you do black tuxes as well? did it seem like there was too much black?

I love black!! My girls are wearing a cute black dress with red heels and red roses ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t really worried about what I am “supposed” to do. I am doing what I want and what makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚

I know this is now an old thread, but I do love black bridesmaid dresses, and have never thought it looked like “too much black.” You can also do a bright colored or metallic shoe if it seems too dark.

I think black dresses are gorgeous on BMs.  That’s an old fashion thought “black is only meant for funerals”  Lots have changed mom ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m hearing the same thing about my blue shoes under the wedding dress.  “Blue?  Blue?  Under white?”

Yes, blue. And guess what … the BMs are wearing black too.  lol
