20 Beautiful Black Wedding Dresses for the Bold Bride
With Halloween just around the corner I thought we would celebrate with something a little seasonal today. A black wedding dress is the perfect choice for a spooky celebration on All Hallow’s Eve. It is also the beautiful choice for all of you bold and fashion forward brides wishing to avoid the traditional meringue!

I have long loved a bride who ditches the traditional wedding dress in a shade of white, in favour of a coloured gown more reflective of her personal style for her big day. In fact, it was the subject of one of my very first posts! (which you can see here, and a more recent update here) And what colour could be more bold than black for a wedding dress? Long associated with elegance and sophistication, black is the trusty shade we all turn to for those special occasions. And surely there is no occasion more special than tying the knot, so why not choose black for your wedding dress? If nothing else its means the possibility of getting to wear your wedding dress again – and what bride wouldn’t love that?

Wedding Dresses with a Hint of Black
Of course you don’t have to go all black to make a statement on your wedding day. Accents of black are a great compromise for you brides looking to add some drama to your look, but not wanting to shy too far away from the traditional white. And yet again if the runways of 2015 are anything to go by, this is going to be a key trend for next year…..
