BLACK...YAY OR NAY?

Hiya girls, How acceptable is it to wear black to a wedding? I've not been to a wedding for over 10 years and have no idea if the times have changed. I don't really suit any other colour apart from black and I'm thinking of buying this dress. Do you think it will be okay? X

love the dress and i would wear black to a wedding. If not have you looked at deep greens / blues?

If the bride and groom are okay with it then I don't see why not 🙆‍♀️

I'd definitely ask beforehand

Thank you all. Great idea to ask beforehand. I'd hate to turn up and the bride be upset over it lol! 🙈 xx

@Zoe It's beautiful isn't it? 😊 I love the idea of emerald green, I'll have a look and see what I can find. I think this dress would look stunning in green too xx

I personally wouldn’t! Especially as we’re now coming into spring soon.. are there any other colours?

I would say nay to white black or even sometimes bright red. Dark navy or green is fine!

I almost bought this dress!!! Yes there’s nothing wrong with wearing black to a wedding. It’s chic and some brides even request it! The last wedding I went to, the bride asked everyone to wear black as it was the aesthetic she wanted for photos.

I would say no, but no harm asking the bride! I was worried about wearing a black top with dark green skirt, but she okay’d it ahead of time.

@Jessica You should have got it, you would have slayed it 😍😂 I love it so much. I really don't suit pastel or bright colours, so I'm limited to black, navy or emerald green. I'm going to ask the bride if she minds me wearing black xx

As long as you don't wear a white dress you can wear any color you like to a wedding I love black as a dress color and personally would wear black myself to a wedding nothing wrong with it looks classy in my opinion but I believe it's down to personally preference I don't do bright colors myself and tend to go for dark colors ir black myself tho I will say when I looked at ur dress I did think of the Addams family mum (cant spell her name) but then again I always thought she was beautiful lol x

You would absolutely slay it too and should definitely get it!!

Beautiful dress, I just wouldn’t personally

@Jessica Thank you beaut 😍

My bridesmaids were in black, black is stunning for a wedding. Is there a dress code on the invite and what month is the wedding? What type of venue? If it’s spring / summer I’d maybe go something a bit more summery. The only colours I’d really avoid are white/ivory/cream and red or really light colours that might appear white on photographs. One of our guests wore a really pale blue and it looks white in all the pictures. X
