Personally, I wouldn’t wear black because I feel like its going to a funeral. But the dresses truly are beautiful and if thats what suits a brides personality, then more power to her!

I love them. And if I wasn’t such a traditional square, I’d probably have one!!

@BallroomPro:  I like these because I still consider them to be bridal in style. I would probably be a bit shocked once I saw the dress but if it fit her or the theme more to her. I dont see it any different than wearing a pink or blue wedding dress.

I think these dresses are very beautiful, and I’m not against them at all. I like them more than many traditional white gowns I’ve seen. If I wasn’t trying to avoid any sort of questioning about unusual wedding choices, I would definitely consider one of them.

I believe your wedding dress should be white.

Not my cup of tea, but if someone else has that vision and is happy in her black wedding dress, then more power to her. If everyone did the exact same thing at their weddings, it would be a very boring world.

@BallroomPro:  Those are stunning dresses.


Now I will channel Joan Rivers from an episodes of Say YEs to the Dress: It is stupid to wear anything but white at your wedding. This is my opinion, like it or not. Here’s why:


You are putting on a Big Wedding Event. You are asking people to come and view your Big Wedding Event. Your guests will have expectations of he main players in the wedding, and the bride has to wear white (or ivory, or champaign or blush.) Don’t screw with the traditional pagentry, guests won’t like it! haha, they will be confused.


Now, I could see a black wedding dress if you are doing a non-tradtional stagy gothic or witchy wedding and I have to say, I would love that. Please invite me! But otherwise, it’s just not appropriate.


If you want to wear dresses like that, there are occasions where you can such as charity balls and the like, or to someone else’s high end wedding reception.

I love some of those dresses but black isn’t bridal to me so I wouldn’t.

Def not a fan…but depending on the theme, the right bride could pull it off.
