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. I too am wearing a black wedding dress! I bought the dress in a cute little shop (not a wedding shop) and I knew straight away this was the dress I wanted to be married in. It cost under $300 and I’m sure it would have been in the thousands if it was in a wedding dress shop. It’s gorgeous and makes me feel like the belle of the ball – it’s like “Old Hollywood” style and has diamontes all in the front. I can’t wait for the big day! Good luck to all on your big day!

  2. Nice dress, nice bride… YES for the Black weeding dress. I hope that my future bride will wear a Black weeding dress.

    Insanity comes to those that belive in their own redepmtion

  10. My daughter is getting married on 10/10/10 and has wanted to wear a black wedding dress for years. I feared that everyone would think they were going to a funeral, but I am glad to see so many people want black dresses. I was thinking of trying to convince her to do a white or ivory with a black overlay. This one is nice though. Thanks for opening my eyes.
