Picture your wedding day. Imagine the dress. Got it? Ok, now what does it look like? Does it have long, lace sleeves or maybe a low, sexy back? Is it a ballgown or a sleek fit-and-flare? No matter the silhouette, shape or fabric, the picture in your mind was probably of a gorgeous white wedding dress. But if you’re a bride who wants to turn tradition on its head, then we are here to tell you black has never been a better choice.
A far cry from your classic wedding dresses, these black wedding dresses are not for the faint of heart! Bold color lends itself to chic silhouettes, which in turn creates a bridal style that is truly unique. Inspired by the modern muse, the silhouettes of these wedding dresses have been elevated to show off the bride’s sexy curves and a fashion-forward sensibility. Black may not seem like the obvious choice for bridal, but once you see these beauties, there’s no going back! Check out our top picks from Martina Liana and Essense of Australia for this better than ever trend!
From the Martina Liana Separates: Together.Forever. collection comes new, bold black colors in some of your favorite pieces. Whatever look you’re going for, the Brody bodysuit is the perfect choice. Pair with the Stevie skirt for something fun and flirty, or the Sanja skirt for a more sexy and sleek look.
Another great option from the Martina Liana separates collection is the Bryce bodysuit. Swirling embroidered lace creates linear patterns that draw attention to the bride’s natural beauty. Paired with the Sawyer skirt in either blushy pink or edgy black makes for a moment you won’t soon forget.
One of the absolute standouts from the new Martina Liana collection is Style 885. Layers of tulle and lace create a juxtaposition of textures reminiscent of classically romantic styles. The contrasting colors make this wedding dress anything but ordinary.
If incorporating color is your thing, but all over black is just too much, Essense of Australia offers the solution. Style D2275 has delicately placed black lace applique over tulle which transforms into a breathtaking botanical pattern. The A-line silhouette with full skirt is ideal for a first dance under the stars.
So whether you’re fully committed to the dark side or just looking to spice things up a bit, black is the way to go. Make sure to check out our Pinterest boards for more inspiration!
