Black Wedding Dresses

There’s no denying the allure of a black bridal party dress—from classic shapes to fashion-forward silhouettes; it’s an elegant and timeless choice for your bridal party. Whether you’re into a moody palette or are having a New Year’s Eve wedding with a darkly romantic theme, black dresses seem like a no-brainer. Plus, the shade is flattering on every silhouette, whether you go for a sleeveless maxi dress, a one-shoulder midi, or an off-the-shoulder mini.
More than easy to wear, black dresses are always on offer, and usually more so than bold colors, which means they come at a range of price points so you can find a dress that suits the budget of every bridal party member. No matter what type of black bridal party dress you choose, chances are your gals will be able to wear their dress again and again—especially if a black-tie wedding or event is on their agenda.

Important Features to Consider
A black wedding dress should have a few important features. Here’s what to consider when selecting a black wedding dress:

  • Material. You’ll want to choose a comfortable material for your wedding dress. You’ll also want to choose a material that fits the venue and season. For instance, if you’re having an outdoor summer wedding, you’ll want a light, breathable fabric that keeps you cool.
  • Style. The style of your dress should fit your personality, as well as the style of your wedding. If your wedding is a formal affair, choose a formal dress. If it’s casual, a more casual dress is appropriate.
  • Sizing. You’ll want to make sure the dress comes in your size or as close as possible. Read sizing charts carefully as most provide measurements. Many dress makers also provide custom sizing if your measurements don’t fit into one particular size.
