25 Black Wedding Dresses 2018

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. 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?

Still not sure? Take a look at these ever so stylish brides in their elegant black wedding dresses…..
