Black for a wedding.. honest opinion

Recommended Posts

Black is perfect, timeless, classic IMO. We had pink and black - the GM's and BM's all wore black and I loved the way our pictures turned out - no one was too hot, and I loved the classic look of it!

My cousin's colors were black and white with red roses. Her bridesmaids wore black dresses with a touch of white, and her mom wore a black and white dress as well. Granted, this was about 10 years ago, but it was still very classy... don't listen to your friend! :)

The first pictures of a DW that I saw had black BM dresses. They chose yellow flowers, but you could really do any accent color or a few colors. Plus, it would probably be nice for your BMs since most of them should already have a black dress if you don't care if the style matches and it will save them (or you) some money.

Saw these great turquoise tea length dresses with black detailing on ebay and then lost it. Found it again finally but while I was looking for it again I found this jewelery. Even if you don't wear it for you wedding it might be nice for a rehersal outfit or stagette, or shower...

I was also a little apprehensive about black until my MOH's and I went shopping last night. We found the greatest black cocktail dresses at Reitman's (Canada). They have a v neckline (front and back) sleeveless, empire waist detailing and a flowing skirt. Perfect for many body types. They were inexpensive (under $60) and they can be worn again! Our main colours were red and white so the black works in beautifully!

 

Go for black!!

I think it is a beautiful color, especally w/ tourquise. Just went to a beach wedding and the BM's dresses were black with hot pink beautiful flowers. Don't let black scare you it is a great color.

I completely disagree that black can not be for a wedding. Soooo many bridesmaids have black dresses. I think it is classy, and I love the colour scheme in that picture you posted! I'm having turquoise has my colour and i'm thinking of adding black and silver now because it looks so stunning!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
