In honour of Halloween today we’ve gotten together a few really sumptuous black wedding dresses from our favourite bridal designers. Nowadays, anything goes with wedding gowns and for the bride who wants to do something really different, a black dress might just be the way to go. These gowns are undeniably high in visual impact, and our advice is to keep your look otherwise simple. Avoid too much colour elsewhere in your palette (such as in your bouquet) and stay away from fussy accessories- basically anything that will distract from the gown. Keep your hairstyle soft and romantic, and the addition of delicate textures or fabrics such as lace or tulle- perhaps in your veil- will ensure the look stays feminine. Most of the gowns below have some hint of colour as well as the aforementioned textures which really work to soften the overall look. To really turn tradition on its head, why not have your bridesmaids in white?
I love that first Badgley Mischka gown. What do you think? Perhaps not for everyone? Eye catching at the very least. Happy Halloween!
