Black Wedding Dress

Every bride wants something special on her wedding day. Something, which will be unique and made exactly as she always dreamed.

Have you ever thought of wearing totally different wedding dress from most of the brides? What wedding dress it would be? Would it be different from the traditional shape? Or maybe a colour – ecru, red or maybe BLACK? Well, once you do that, I’m sure all your wedding guests will remember you forever.

If you would like to go for a black wedding dress, you need to consider a few very important things, which I will walk you through in this blog post.

Begin your black wedding dress hunting as soon as possible

Finding a perfect black wedding dress can be slightly harder, than a traditional wedding dress. Not every bridal salon will have them in stock for you to try, which will make you wait a little longer. But don’t worry, it will be worth waiting.

Black wedding dress usually means designer dress

WooHoo! That is good news. You will wear a designer dress for your wedding and nobody can stop you! Most of the traditional salons will not have on their offer black wedding dress, but designers like Vera Wang (or others) are there for you. Yes, it might be a little (or not just a little) more expensive, but it is your wedding at the end of the day. Let’s go crazy.

You will look original and everybody will notice it

Well, that’s kind of obvious one, but not every bride consider it. Everyone will wait to take a picture with you as well as literally, all the people you will pass (on the way to the venue, at the venue, etc) want to see your dress, want to touch it. Basically, you have to remember, that by looking in a very original way, you will draw attention. But hey, you want it, don’t you!

Don’t be afraid – It is your wedding day

Yes, it is your wedding day. If you are considering wearing a black wedding dress, try it on and check if it suits you. Try a few different styles to see if you really like it. Don’t be afraid of your dreams. It is YOUR WEDDING DAY!
