From gothy to fancy, black wedding dresses are badass

By on May. 5th

Who needs a white wedding dress when you can wear a black one?! I don't want to hate one the lighter end of the wedding dress spectrum, but as someone who eloped in a black dress, I like my frocks dark!

Here are a few of our favorite black wedding dresses — and we'd love to see more!

Steph and Mark's New Zealand wedding was pretty fantastic for several reasons (rockabilly theme! red details!) but chief among them is Steph's black dress. A-mazing!

This Monique Lhuillier V-Neckline Tiered Trumpet Gown has cobalt blue undertones, perfect for your dark blue and black goth wedding.

Kristen and Jet both rocked black at their zombie Halloween wedding in May 2013.

This lacy black gown runs up to size 14 and is also available in red.

Krysten donned this incredible black and white dress in her New Orleans elopement.

Manda's full-length black gown is AMAZING — as was her afternoon nightclub wedding in Australia!

This 50's style full-length black satin gown comes in sizes extra small to 5X, and the price is between $57 and $120. SCORE.

One more from the archives, because I'm pretty sure you can never go wrong with a birdcage veil, dinosaur, and amazing black dress.
