The Trend of Black Wedding Dresses has been becoming more trendy in the past few years. Many people used to sigh and wonder how a bride would wear a Black Wedding Dress for her Big Day, but this is in fact becoming more common those days!

Since the Victorian era, white has been the traditional color of choice for brides to wear on their special day. But, while white appears classic and lovely, it isn’t a bride’s only option. For those who are willing to follow their own personality and fashion style in particular, black makes a gorgeous selection for a wedding gown.

Dark, decadent, elegant, and chic, this inky hue is ideal for fashion-forward brides. It can be an all Black Wedding Dress, a Black Bridal Gown mixed with another color, or a Black Gown with Black Beadings to make it less Gothic. So, if you’re looking to create a bold statement on your big day, why not consider this shade? Here, we’ve rounded up a selection of 9 of the most stunning black wedding dresses we have created for our brides for you to view. But first, check out this lovely collage for these gowns before scrolling down!

 

1- Black Lace Wedding Dresses:

One of the most beautiful artistic touches you can have for your wedding dress, is to have Black Lace Added to it. Lace gives the gown such elegance. It doesn’t have to be all covered up in Lace. It can have Lace all over, or lace only in the Bodice Area. Here is an examples of a gown that we have done with lace all the way down with a removable train for our Connecticut bride Samantha.

 

 

 

 

2- Black and Blush/Colored Mermaid Wedding Dresses with Lace 

We also love adding a hint of color to Black to give it a more lively look. Check out this Black and Blush gown we have created for our bride Emily from Alabama. The combination of colors created a soft look which doesn’t look as Gothic-y as plain Black Dresses.

3- Black & White Mermaid Wedding Dresses

If you’re contemplating to wear a black wedding dress, but aren’t sure about completely abandoning the classic white, why not embrace both shades? With a mixture of black and white, you can maintain a sense of tradition while also showcasing your unique style.This beautiful Black and White Wedding Dress was created based on what our Michigander’s bride Julie had in mind. Beadings were added to make sure the dress looks like a Wedding Dress, and the beautiful flowing skirt also created a beautiful contrast with the rest of the gown.

4- Black and White Vintage or Medieval Wedding Dresses

Vintage Fashion is also a style we truly love! Medieval Wedding Dresses are romantic, timeless and can have different traditional or modern styles. They typically consist of a Corseted Bodice and a Flowing Skirt. It is soft,elegant and timeless. Our 4th dress here was created for our Michigander bride Renee and it included a removable jacket so she can easily have 2 different looks on her Wedding Day.

 

 

 

5- Plain Gothic Ballgown Wedding Dress

A black wedding dress makes a particularly perfect option for brides who love a gothic look. While most black dresses will project a slight gothic aesthetic, specific styles do embrace the beautifully dark style more intensely. Adding a black veil and opting for dark makeup can also help achieve an entire gothic appearance. Our 5th dress here was created for our Minnesota bride Tori and she looked gorgeous in it!

 

 

6-Black Ballgown With Beadings and Lace

Our 6th dress here is a black ballgown which combines lace and beadings on top of it to make it less than a purely Gothic Wedding Dress. This gown has been featured on Wedding Day Magazine in March 2020. It is so beautiful and elegant. The long train also creates a Fairytale Like vibe! Needless to say, the model who wore it (Katelynn) looked gorgeous!

 

 

7-Black Ballgowns with Full Beading on the Bodice

Black Ballgowns can also include beading all over the bodice to create some beautiful contrast and make it appear less Gothic-y than it would be without them. Check out this beautiful gown we have created for our Ohio bride Roszhawn. Doesn’t she look gorgeous?!

One of the most gorgeous Dress ideas we had for 2019 was the beautiful contrasting combination of White and Black in creating This Black and White Wedding Dress for our bride, Julie. If you are a bride who’s looking for a Black Wedding Dress but everyone around you is hoping to see you in traditional white and ivory colors, Black and White Wedding Dress Ideas are the next big thing!

When Julie first booked an appointment with Brides & Tailor, she explained that she wanted a unique custom wedding dress which would truly be a statement dress. She gave us all her ideas, and together we were able to suggest creating a mermaid wedding dress which has white lining underneath, and black lace combined with black beading to give the dress a unique look without it looking too filled with colors. The end result was simply stunning! We are more than happy to share with you some of Julie’s Wedding Day Photos from Summer 2019! We have received countless of messages about this particular custom black and white wedding dress, so we were waiting for the perfect time to showcase it to you:)

What I loved the most about Julie’s Wedding Day were the colors! The bridesmaids/groomsmen wore Steel Grey Dresses and suits, while the maid of honor and matron of honor wore Black. The cake also looked so elegant with Black/White accents and even those cupcakes matched! The thing that was even more amazing is that it’s so clear that the bride and groom and everyone else were just having a blast! Having a Wedding can be so stressful sometimes, but it’s the fun,crazy memories that make it so worth it 🙂

So, are you ready to impress your wedding guests with a unique black and white wedding dress like this ? If Mermaid Wedding Dresses aren’t suitable for your body type, there are many more wedding dresses styles that can be done  in white and black! Dare to look different on your Big Day! Don’t forget to add some black and white colors to your Wedding Decor and other aspects of your wedding like the cake, flowers,tables to make sure all colors look great together!

Ladies and gentlemen, check out these amazing photos from Mr and Mrs Waddington’s Wedding Day!

Valentine’s Day is the one time of year you’ll see loud proclamations of love across social media, in the glances exchanged at dining tables, and in the eyes of a man walking home from work with a giant bouquet of roses for his sweetheart.  And so, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to feature one of our brides’ beautiful wedding which wasn’t actually on Valentine’s Day, but the colors do make us feel that it actually was! 🙂

 

When Roszhawn first contacted Brides & Tailor for a custom wedding dress design, she knew she wanted a timeless, statement ballgown. She also wanted to have beadings all over the bodice, and we suggested having see-through tulle that matched her skin tone color so the sleeves look illusional on her body. The end result was just out of this world! We truly appreciate it when brides make a long drive to get to us.We can ship our gowns to all states but meeting our brides is also something I look forward to! Roszhawn made the drive from Cincinnati to Michigan and needless to say, this was a memorable experience she will never forget! When you look at these photos below, you’ll know why- Her gown was a STATEMENT one!

 

On her wedding day, the colors were just so pretty! The groom wore a Black Tuxedo. The bride’s hairstyle looked very classy and elegant, and the best part about the makeup was the bold red lipstick color.They chose Black and Red for the bridesmaids and groomsmens’ outfits, and the beautiful contrast definitely reminded me of Valentine’s Day in the middle of October:) The cake also matched with beautiful roses and black accents on it. The bridal bouquet was white in addition to all the bridesmaids’ bouquets. In brief, even though the Wedding Dress was black and the entire theme was Red and Black, it wasn’t too Gothic-y! It was a mix of classiness, vibrancy and elegance.

 

So for all the brides planning to get married on Valentine’s day, out of all of the cheese romantic lovely days to get married on, Valentine’s Day seems like a pretty good choice. Plus you’ll never forget your wedding anniversary!:) Check out some lovely photos from Our Bride’s Wedding Day Below!
