While Rouge has become the most popular wedding dress color alternative, I’ve been digging really black and gray recently.
Not only for the Victorian Gothic contingent, these dresses are sophisticated, unique and certainly more universally flattering (who doesn’t like what a black dress does for his figure?).
Some black and grey dresses stand out, from a voluminous skirt that would envy Scarlett O’hara (top right) to a delightfully aged look (bottom).
Others are only darker versions of their contemporaries. These black lace dresses (top) would be at home at any wedding if they were made of ivory. But the black lace takes you to another level, doesn’t it? I think these dresses would really shine at Starry Night receptions or a cold winter event.
Some of the most popular black and gray dresses are tight-fitting funny. If all eyes are riveted on you, what could be better for sashay in the alley than a long and shiny shell? This glittering starburst pattern in gunmetal Grey (below) will make your dress shine almost as much as you do on your wedding day.
But my favorite type of black or gray wedding dresses are those that are timeless and sophisticated for all ages. Whether you marry at 20 or 50, you can look radiant in one of these. Especially beautiful is the art Deco inspired dress (top right) and this Vera Wang ball gown (bottom), which could easily be combined with a soft topper.
These last black dress embody classic elegance and are so elegant that you can wear them to events long after your wedding.
