When it comes to wedding dresses, white has been the traditional color for decades. However, in recent years, brides have been breaking this norm by opting for non-traditional colors such as black. A black wedding dress can be a bold and stunning choice for your big day, but there are some things to consider when choosing one. As with any choice you make with regards to your wedding, there are pros and cons to sort through.
Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect non-traditional dress.
A black wedding dress may not be suitable for every wedding theme and style. It’s important to consider the overall look and feel of your wedding before deciding on a black dress. If you’re having a traditional, classic wedding, a black wedding dress may not fit in well. However, if you’re having a Gothic, modern, or edgy wedding, a this may be the perfect choice.
Black can be a very flattering color, but it’s important to consider how it will look against your skin tone. If you have a fair complexion, a black dress can make you look even paler. On the other hand, if you have a darker complexion, a black dress can be very flattering. If you’re unsure, try on some black dresses in different styles to see how they look against your skin.
The time of day and venue of your wedding can also impact whether a black wedding dress is appropriate. If you’re having a daytime wedding in a garden or on a beach, a black wedding dress may not be the best choice. However, if you’re having an evening wedding in a more formal venue, a darker dress can be very elegant and sophisticated.
Just like with any wedding dress, it’s important to choose a style that flatters your figure. Black can be a slimming color, but it’s important to choose a dress that fits well and accentuates your best features. Consider the neckline, waistline, and length of the dress when choosing a style. Modern dress options are almost limitless(depending on your budget, of course).
When wearing a black wedding dress, it’s important to accessorize carefully. You don’t want to overdo it with too many accessories that can take away from the elegance of the dress. Keep your accessories simple and elegant. Consider adding a pop of color with a bouquet or jewelry, as long as the color pairs well with your gown.
A black wedding dress can be a stunning and bold choice for your big day. Just remember to consider the theme and style of your wedding, your skin tone, the time of day and venue, choose a style that flatters your figure, and accessorize carefully. With these tips in mind, you can rock any dress and make a statement on your special day! Make it a day to remember.
