Who said you need to wear white on your wedding day? Until now the mere thought of a black wedding dress would have been unimaginable. But bridal fashion has undergone a huge transformation within just the last few years where color is concerned. White is no longer the only color option for the wedding dress today. We think black wedding dresses are classy, elegant, and the perfect choice for outdoor elopements – black dresses simply pop against some landscapes in a way white dresses do not.

Whether you love or hate traditional wedding dress styles, you’ll be able to find a black dress to fit your vision.

It’s easier to keep clean
Since a black dress can be worn on multiple occasions there are plenty of reasons to keep it looking presentable. A black wedding dress won’t show dirt or stains, so you’re wedding dress will remain to look awesome the entire day and right through the evening. Ask almost any bride who wore white… lipstick, wine, grass stains, makeup… this is just a small sampling of what commonly finds its way onto a wedding dress on the wedding day, and there could be no color worse than white to make a stain stand out in a big way. A black wedding dress is way more likely to look good as new at the end of the day - and throughout all of your photos.
