This one is for that edgy bride who always wears black or is about breaking stereotypes.
Who said you could only flaunt a white wedding dress on the most memorable day of your life? A black wedding dress looks just as bridal, sophisticated, and elegant as a white bridal dress. Its non-traditional aspect makes a black dress wow-worthy. Many black dresses pop against numerous landscapes in a way whites cannot. If you are on the fence, or a black dress is something new for you, here are five good reasons you can wear one on your wedding day:
There is no better reason to wear a black dress than being yourself. It is your big day, so “do you” and let the rest follow. Wedding and family traditions can indeed be stressful, but this is one rule you are allowed to break. Make decisions based on what you want and not what society forces on you. Don’t want an extravagant wedding? Plan an elopement. Not a cake fan? Go donuts. Feel more “you” in black? Get a stunning black gown for your wedding.
You can carry your black dress in so many ways and style it with several accessories or nothing at all. You can choose a little black dress or go all dramatic with some romantic ruffles. Ultimately the choice is yours, and for your peace of mind, black dresses come in myriad styles – you won’t be disappointed.

CLASSY, SEXY, MYSTERIOUS
Black signifies elegance, power, and mystery. It is for the woman who is reluctant to bow down to the norms. A black dress is just as sophisticated and flattering as any other color. In fact, it is a head-turner and isn’t a one-time deal. You can wear a black dress again with just a little bit of restyling. Such versatility a black dress can offer – what more would any bride want?
Black looks chic and absolutely stunning in pictures. A good photography team can bring out all the little details of your dress and portray them aesthetically. It stands out against so many backdrops and flatters every skin tone and body type. We can’t think of any location a black dress won’t pop unless you’re taking the vows in a cave (insert wink emoji here).
WON’T GET VISIBLY DIRTY
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you – black dresses are low maintenance; you won’t have to make a bib out of napkins to keep it clean like how it is with a white dress. Black doesn’t get visibly dirty and will easily take you through all your functions and photos.
