Would You Wear Black?

Black Wedding Dresses: Ghoulish or Glamorous?

Black used to be the exclusive color of funerals, but today's chic brides are daring to wear it as they walk down the aisle. "There has been a growing interest in black wedding dresses," Tova Marc, head designer for Wedding Dress Fantasy, which specializes in non-traditional colors, tells Shine. "They are tired of the same old white and ivory." The trend began in 2011 when Vera Wang, the high priestess of bridal wear, sent 15 inky looks down the runway. Marc also says Lady Gaga's edgy look has had an impact on brides-to-be. But, black isn't for everyone. Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, fashionable Sarah Jessica Parker (who wore black to wed Matthew Broderick in 1997) said, "I would white it up, I'd wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn on that day." —Sarah B.

No, but many time guests wear black. Most weddings I have gone to the women wear a little black dress.

Absolutely! If not black I would have went with something other than white. White is too boring and typical for me. Although I have a thing for going against the grain.

But, I'm already married and I didn't wear a dress.

I would, and will when we do a vow renewal ceremony. There was so much family drama when we got married, it was easier to just get it done in the city. I really hate white clothing and shoes. I have two white button down shirts, but those are for work and I usually wear black underneath them. I wear black at least 6 days a week. My mother said it was a phase. That was almost ten years ago:)
