Accessorizing a black wedding dress can take your bridal look from simple to sensational! Here are some tips and ideas on how to accessorize different styles of these unconventional wedding dresses. 

  • Add a pop of color: If you want to break up the all-black look, consider adding a pop of color with your accessories. This could be in the form of colorful earrings, a bold statement necklace or even brightly colored shoes. 
  • Go for metallics: Metallic accessories, such as gold or silver jewelry, can add a touch of glamour and elegance to your black wedding dress. Consider wearing a statement necklace or dainty earrings in the metallic hue of your choice. 
  • Keep it simple: If you want the focus to be solely on your black wedding dress, opt for minimal accessories. A simple pair of studs or a delicate bracelet can add just the right amount of sparkle without overpowering your gown. 
  • Play with textures: Since black is such a versatile color, you can have fun mixing and matching different textures in your accessories. Consider velvet shoes, pearl hair pins or lace gloves to add interest to your look. 

Remember, the key is to choose accessories that complement your black wedding dress and make you feel confident and beautiful on your special day.  

Black wedding dresses are trending because they offer a bold alternative to traditional white gowns and allow brides to express their individual style and make a statement on their wedding day.
