I’m going to play debil’s advocate here for a minute. The dress is gorgeous, it looks very much like a Pronovias coctail dress. But are you absolutely sure that you want to wear a black coctail dress on your wedding day? I know you are an encore bride, but still a wedding is special. Whenever I think of black wedding dresses I think of Sarah Jessica Parker saying how much she regretted wearing a black dress to her wedding.

If you’ve got the cajones, then go for it! It’s a beautiful dress and it would look gorgeous. If you are still wavering on whether you want to wear black, then you can always compromise–wear white for the ceremony, black for the reception–that sort of thing. But I think you’re the bride–wear what you want!

BTW–I puffy-heart louboutins, but man are they hard for me to walk in! The bow ones are gorgeous, but I’d go with silver. The dress already has a lot of flounce on the bottom.

At one time, it was extremely common to marry in a black dress. Go for it!

I Love It! I saw the post said black dress and was sure I was going to hate it but it’s just so beautiful, works as a weddingdress for sure. Maybe put something on the invites about dressing colourfully, or that the wedding party are in black so that someone else doesn’t turn up in a similar dress

It’s very pretty! Reminds me of Solo in the Spotlight Barbie.

Wear it if you want to! It’s your wedding.

@Cheeks11: (chuckle) Louboutins are demanding, unfortunately. I used to have one pair (120s–high high heel) and I gave them away because it was too much for me. I am jonesing to try on one of his lower heeled beauties, though I am probably more wary than a true shoe fashionista because I’m a teacher and I wear flats more than I wear heels, which means my arch isn’t really trained all that often! I warn you that the bottom pair (anenome) look like his decollete pumps which are hellish on my feet. The top pair look a bit easier to handle. That’s not to discourage you, though, just to say do try Louboutins on before you buy them (ESPECIALLY if you are going the ebay route)–you can still purchase them online becuase I believe Neiman Marcus has a pretty nice return policy. But get a feel of what it’ll be like walking in them.

This gal did a really nice summary on ebay about sizing Louboutins–dont’ get intimidated–it’s really helpful. But it does sort of convey why you probably want to do the best that you can in trying on the shoes in person:

omg with those silver shoes HOT!!!  if you want to ‘brighten’ it up maybe add a big ol’ sparkly brooch or maybe one of those gorgeous silvery beaded belts to go right under your boobs, it looks like they have one in black there as is. 

if you can make it any color maybe go with a rich jewel tone like blood red or emerald green?  i love the black, but it hides some of the detailing.  be sure to post a pic when you get this sucker made!
