From gothy to fancy, black wedding dresses are badass

Posted by

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.

  1. Finally! Now I’ll have something to show my fiancé when he gives me crap about wearing black to our wedding! I love that someone’s doing it. I probably won’t go this fancy, but still. I love the blue on her bridesmaids as well. Beautiful bride!

  2. What a beautiful picture! And the dress (and woman) are gorgeous! Yay for the black wedding dress!

  3. BEAUTIFUL! People gave me shit for wanting black. That dress is drop dead hot!

  4. Black dresses rock, My wedding dress is infact black aswell! And think about it, black is soooo a wedding color the boys wear it 90% of the time! We girls can wear what ever color we want!

  5. I’ve been searching for the designer of this dress.
    I found out it’s likely an Allure Quinceanera gown # ALUQ032
    Now I’m seriously considering one of their gowns # ALUQ032 in ivory.
    Although I’d probably hand embroider a black shadow line around the silver.
    I love the detachable train option.
