As a devotee of black apparel, I’ll admit that black shades make up 60% of my collection. While the LBD (little black dress) is a staple in most women’s closets, when it comes to wedding attire, black is usually the last colour that comes to mind for bridesmaid dresses. There are so many stunning blues and desirable purples to choose from, after all!
I’m here to encourage you to join the dark side of the universe – the side of dresses!
Is It True That Black Is Making A Comeback?
I don’t believe it’s ever been out of style. Black is such a versatile colour that it pairs well with practically any other hue. More brides should be thinking about it.
Black is a striking colour that complements all body types. It looks fantastic on individuals of all skin tones. Trust me when I say that your bridesmaids will appreciate it. These black tees are meant to be worn to parties and get-togethers on a regular basis.
Black bridesmaids dresses are sophisticated and timeless, giving opulence to a formal evening gathering or surprising charm to a garden party.
Because each design has its own feel, the formality of a wedding affects the proper type and length of dress. There are a variety of styles to choose from, ranging from floor-length formal to short cocktail elegance.
Because black is synonymous with more formal attire, choosing a style winner for your black bridesmaids dresses is impacted in part by your wedding venue. Long, floor-length black bridesmaid gowns will look out of place in an outside garden wedding. Nothing beats a gorgeous black floor-length beaded gown for an elegant downtown gathering, though.
Keep the following trends in mind when shopping for black bridesmaid dresses.
Adding length to any gown will, on average, raise the formality factor. Most people favor darker colour palettes for evening party attire, making black a perfect formal wedding colour. If you choose a formal wedding, you may expect more traditional elements on your big day. Keeping your bridesmaids’ gown styles consistent is one of these variables. A black floor-length gown is the epitome of sophistication; it radiates a polished, elegant aura.
Floor-length gowns do exactly what they say on the tin: they reach all the way to the (wedding dance) floor! They give your bridesmaids an elegant image, especially when the guys are dressed all in black and the bride is wearing a stunning white gown. Here are some of our favorite designs from some of our favorite online dress shops. Don’t be afraid to try a few different combos. If your bridal party includes women of varied sizes, the “mismatched dress” look can be the ideal choice.
