Incorporating Black on Big Day Becoming More Gorgeous than Gothic.

Daring brides are ditching the idea that they should wear white on their wedding day. From one end of the color spectrum to the other, fashion-forward brides-to-be are choosing one of this season’s hottest – and darkest – hues for their walk down the aisle.

This season, black wedding dresses have begun making appearances from the runway to the altar. Actress Shenae Grimes made headlines for the dark dress she wore to her May 2013 outdoor wedding to exchange vows with Josh Beech. Her trendy black Vera Wang V-neck dress from the Fall 2012 collection featured pretty lace accents and a tulle skirt. ( 05/10/2013).

Although it takes a certain confidence to feel comfortable wearing a black wedding dress, brides don’t have to be celebrities to make the look work for them.

“Brides who are willing to be bold and looking to make a statement can pull off a black wedding dress,” says Brett Reynolds, CEO of “Black dresses can be slimming, sexy and not to mention, a definite attention-getter. So as long as the bride is confident in her dress, she’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons.”

While black can be thought of as harsh or gothic, especially for a wedding day, brides find the right accessories make all the difference. When paired with pretty, natural makeup and feminine touches like pearls and soft, up-swept hairstyles, the color becomes romantic. To keep the ensemble from looking funeral-like, brides should also avoid wearing a black veil.

Brides who want to incorporate the sophisticated beauty of black into their wedding planning without wearing it themselves can choose little black dresses for their bridesmaids. Not only does this make for a classy color scheme, but bridesmaids are unlikely to mind purchasing a cute LBD that they can wear again.

A wedding dress is huge part of any bride’s big day. Choosing a dress should be more about what makes a bride feel beautiful and less about what color the dress is. After all, when it comes down to it, it doesn't matter if it’s black or white.
