    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 that it's perfectly fine! I am a bridesmaid in September and our dresses are 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.

                  Black is a great way to set off your white dress.....

                    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!

                      One of my favorite aspects of our wedding was the incorporation of black. It is classic, streamlined and trendy. I definitely say go for it!
