If edgy is your thing, you scoff at traditional white bridal gowns, and a glamorous, over-the-top wedding dress that is in all black versus ivory, white, or champagne, you’ll love the styles in this blog post.

We found a gorgeous collection of wedding dresses that are black from Stylish Bride Accessories to prove that all brides have different styles! You don’t have to follow the crowd: go big, bold, edgy, and a little moody if that’s your thing.

Many of these dresses have a two-piece style (aka bridal separates) that are made with a bodysuit and skirt. This can be a cropped look, a long-sleeve lace look, open back, short sleeve, etc. In this way, you can completely customize the look of your gown, whether you choose one of this shop’s traditional wedding dresses or one of these new black wedding dresses.

Before we get to inspo — we are sharing 14 of the best black bridal gowns, after all — we’re covering a few frequently asked questions about wearing a black wedding dress.

Black Wedding Dresses

What is the meaning of wearing a black wedding dress?

A black wedding dress isn’t dark or symbolic of bad luck or anything like that. It’s purely a fashionable statement: brides like to go off the norm and this is one way to do it. Many brides are opting for a black dress as their party dress for a huge reception-only wedding (after tying the knot in a pandemic elopement or courthouse wedding). Others simply love the way it looks: black is elegant, gothic, and has a unique edge to it.

Is it OK to wear a black wedding dress?

Of course! It’s your wedding. Choose any dress you love!

Black wedding dresses are along the same lines as formal and black-tie.

If you like it, go with it!
