Wedding Dresses: Black Wedding Dresses

Black Wedding Dresses
Untraditional but Gorgeous!

black wedding dress

Believe it or not, black wedding dresses are really popular, even if tradition dictates that black is more commonly seen at a funeral rather than a wedding!

Back in 1997, Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker got married to husband Matthew Broderick in black and set a new trend.

Sarah wanted to marry "invisibly" and her way of doing it was to wear a black dress.

She apparently regretted the decision later, but hey, it was right at the time for her desire to keep things low-key.

Besides not wanting to make a big show out of your wedding, there are plenty of other good reasons to wear oh so chic noir on your big day.

Getting Married in Black

Here are just a few reasons:

    It's stating the obvious but a black wedding gown can be FAR cheaper. You don't need to visit a bridal store as you can hunt for the dress of your dreams in prom dress stores or even buy a little black dress from your local discount fashion store without a single mention of the "W" word.

  • Show your PERSONALITY
    Wearing a black dress on your wedding day will probably cause huge controversy amongst relatives and friends, but it's sure to put your individual stamp on what would otherwise be yet another traditional, unsurprising day - dare to be different?

    Why feel miserable because you feel intimidated by having to conform to tradition? Have fun planning your big day, get advice from friends and relatives but be sure to do what YOU want.

  • COLOR is Cool
    Some women just do not suit white or ivory. While pink, blue or red wedding dresses are other alternative choices, why not consider a dark shade too, especially if you love wearing the color!

And here's a fabulous little black number at a stunning price to match:
