I love black bridesmaid dresses. I wanted them for my own wedding, but DH didn’t like the idea so I compromised with dark blue. I still wish we had gone with black dresses!

I love black. It’s chic and looks flattering on just about anyone. If I were in your wedding and you said the dresses were black I would love you forever.

holamarcia:  They always remind me of funerals, therefore I really dislike the color black for bridesmaid dresses. But that’s just my opinion, so if you like it, go for it.

holamarcia:  I’ve worn black twice as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I’m a big fan, but then, I love wearing black in general. As long as it doesn’t wash any of the girls out, go for it. 

Other options: Dark grey. Gold.

Wore this as Bridesmaid or Best Man. Didn’t have a say. Just had to go and pay for it.

holamarcia:  When I see black I think of Chanel, Hepburn, pearls, and all things classy. And while most people say you’ll never wear a bridesmaid dress again, a BLACK dress may be worn again depending on the style.

Black is awesome! Elegant, slimming, and bonus they can wear them again! Mine wore black long chiffon dresses of their choice, they ended up looking pretty similar though but weren’t up close.

holamarcia:  I, too, am going for a classic elegance. My girls will be wearing black. We are doing black, pearls, and a splash of red.

Elegant yes, and the styles of the dresses should be ultra-sophisticated, that is what would look best IMO.

Black will look great on the bridesmaids and you will no doubt stand out in contrast to them.
