More about this black lace wedding gown!

Who's with us on our deep abiding love for black wedding dresses?!

We are into black dresses all year long but of course we've also featured lots of Halloween weddings with black dresses so we've definitely got some fall wedding black gowns to feature here… plus, some of our favorites you can buy if you're in the market.

Here are some black wedding dresses that we love that you can snag:

Check out this frothy, short confection. It's a flower explosion that goes up to size 3X.

This is Modcloth's So Noir, So Good Dress: short, lacy, and with full sleeves.
It's available up to size 18.
This dress reminds me of another peacock dress we've featured in the past. But this one is a little more formal and has a lot more coverage. This one goes up to size 18.

Here's another Modcloth find with a retro feel: Every Dot of You dress. This one goes up to a 3X.
Another mullet dress! The It All Stars Here Dress looks like it's birds flying into the stars. Trippy!

This tiered dress from Wedding Dress Fantasy speaks for itself… in volumes of fabric!

One more high/low mullet to round this out: a tailored look with tulle. You'll find this one up to a size 20.

  1. THAT rocks!!! I originally wanted a black dress, but then changed my mind. I don’t know why though. HMMM! hehe. Those are some beautiful dresses.

  2. Thanks for the mention, Ariel. I was really surprised by how strongly people feel about the whole idea of a black wedding dress. I thought it was just kind of a kooky alternative so I posted about it! But I’ve had some amazing comments, where people have shared some really interesting personal experiences. Who knew!?! Thanks for reading!
