    I wouldn’t personally do it. I guess I’m traditional that way. Besides, what other day are you going to get to wear an all-white gown? You can wear black to any event.

    @hopefloats: Agreed.

    But it’s your wedding and if that’s what you want, go for it.

    I thought about this and making all of my bm’s wear white. However, and I know this is a silly reason, Sara Jessica Parker did this, and 2 years later she said it was her biggest wedding regret. Ugh. I trusted her lol.

    I’m planning on a black dress and heavily considering tea length. That’s really pretty! It’s a JA, huh? I was thinking I’d probably have to get a custom dress. Hmm.

    Personally I wouldn’t wear a black dress, but not because I disapprove. Black just doesn’t suit me as well as say red or green (the colours I really wanted to wear). My mum offered to pay for the dress on the condition it was a “bridal” colour and gold was as far as I could push it.

    If you want it, go for it.

    Fiance teased me about it, because I was a goth kid for years. But I’ve definitely changed a lot since then, I only dress up like I used to once in a while for kicks. I will admit I briefly considered it! So I’d say if you love it, DO IT! There are no rules for what color dress you have to wear!

    Maybe you can wear it to your rehearsal dinner if you are having one? Plus, now you Fiance has seen it, but maybe that doesn’t matter to you if its very non-traditional. I guess I am more traditional with those things too. It’s a beautiful dress though, I can see why you love it.

    It’s such a great dress! It’s your wedding so do whatever makes you (and FI) happy. I love your idea of the white tuxedo and black dress. It just seem so classy and unique.

    It is a pretty dress but I agree with mrscheetos.  I’ve very traditional though.  All I can think is, “Marry in black, wish yourself back.”

    I wouldn’t. It just looks like a prom dress to me.

    I didn’t wear white either, I wore blue. But I associate black with a funeral. PLus this dress says prom/cocktail not bridal chic.

    @KatyElle: I agree with not using black because in U.S. culture it is a traditional color of mourning. It’s the same reason why traditional brides in China wear red instead of white.

    However, this is your wedding. Not trying to discourage you, but some guests may be a little confused by the color choice. What’s your overall theme or color scheme? I can see this working better with some themes/venues than others.
