    No, I don’t care.  I feel like some people are more comfortable in black (because it’s slimming, I guess?) and I’m fine with that.  I doubt one person wearing black would make my wedding look like a funeral, and I’d probably be too busy to notice anyway!

    By The Way, if she’s fixated on the black dress, maybe she can offset it with some colorful accessories.

    Not at all… I don’t think that black means any certain thing or that it has to have a somber or serious connotation to it

    i didn’t want my mom or Dh’s mom to wear black but that was it.

    and the only reason that is is because my mom said my dads mom wore black to their wedding because she didn’t want them to get married…

    silly but true!

    I voted I could care less, because I honestly don’t! All the colors are welcome in our wedding. 😀

    I wouldn’t want someone dressed for a funeral but I don’t mind tasteful black with colored accents.  I can’t dictate what people wear, but I would want them to dress for a celbration.

    No. I’d care if it was one of our parents, but I didn’t care what the guests wore as long as they were dressed appropriately.

    As long as they don’t show up in jeans or a white dress I don’t care!

    No I don’t mind. I think many people associate black with dressy.

    @AirForceWife78:  This about sums it up for me! Unfortunately, based on a recent wedding, I think my cousin’s bf may wear jeans…but whatever, I’m sure I won’t care too much the day of.

    @AirForceWife78:  I second that! (half of my family will probably show up in jeans!) 

     

    I wouldn’t care…  I always shop intending to add some color in my wardrobe but honestly have a difficult time (I don’t like a lot of patterns, bright colors, can’t wear some colors because of my skin fair skin tone). So I know it sometimes can be difficult to find a colorful dress!

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE black, it’s THE most classic color (shade) of all time. So I would never discourage anyone, ever wedding or not to not wear black.

    My closet is filled with dressy clothes that in some way involve the color black. I would not be offended if someone wore black to my wedding because I have worn black (with fun colored heels or jewelery) to many weddings!

    Not really.  I like the color black.
