Would you wear a black wedding dress?

I know someone who mentioned they were looking at black wedding dresses, and I thought it was just so bold!  Would you have the courage to pull it off?

No, I couldn't pull it off. My conservative, traditional nature wouldn't allow it but I would love to go to a wedding for a bride that could do it!

I don't think I could personally.  I think I would need some photos/ words of encouragement. That and the approval of my mom which wouldn't happen haha.

I think they are STUNNING. However, there is no way I would have worn one for my wedding! Maybe a vow renewal or something, I can see if I ever do it again I would make more bold choices. But for my wedding, I had my heart set on white!

I have seen some beautiful black wedding gowns but I am more on the traditional side and wouldn't dare but kuddos to those who do!

My ex-sister-in-law wore black (I only saw pictures).  I'm sure it's fine for a lot of people and particularly those who have a Halloween wedding.  For me though, I wouldn't wear black.  I'm half kicking myself for not getting a red dress for me and choosing another color for my girls, but it's too late now.

I don't think so...I love wearing black but I'm a pretty conservative person regarding wedding so I wouldn't have been able to wear anything else than white on my wedding day!

Not for me, I associate black with death and funerals.  I don't even like black bridesmaid dresses for that very reason.
