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?

oh yes I would ever since i was a small child my mama said I should never wear white because I attract dirt. every white clothing item own (very few by the way) has some sort of impossible stain. my fave white capris with salsa stains to  my white coffee stained t shirt. I would so rock the black.

I wouldn't, not because of the traditional angle, but because I just don't like the look! I don't think it's very flattering and tends to dampen the spirit of the occasion IMO. Now, a different colored wedding dress I would be all for!

I was torn between wearing black or white then black AND white. I opted for white because that's how I'd pictured it in my head since I was a little girl. I'm so glad I chose white!

A family friend re-married and his wife who is just super trendy and awesome wore a white dress with black blod designs on it and it was freaking stunning! She totally got away with it because they're in the late forties/early 50's but she looked cooler than a lot of brides I'd seen in a long time lol

Haha, I admit I love Vera Wang's black wedding dresses, however, when it comes to my choice, I can't just easily say yes to it! lol

Im very nontraditional and quirky.....but for my beach wedding it doesnt work. i think it depends on the venue and wedding theme. But i would wear one. And its slimming anyways so why not!! Plus is believe that traditions limit us. You should wear what you want on a day that is specifically about you. If you like black, purple or whatever color. Do what makes you happy!
