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?!
