In light of the Time’s Up movement, would it be too dreary to ask my bridesmaids to wear black bridesmaid dresses to a June wedding?
Everyone looked so handsome and beautiful last night during the 75th Golden Globe Awards wearing black, but I don’t want to give a negative connotation on my wedding day. Please advise.
By the way, I’m definitely wearing a black wedding dress whether my mother likes it or not! My fiancé will be wearing a black tux.
- The black bridal gown is one of the most popular trends for 2018. This chic style is especially a great favorite in sophisticated cities.
- Your bridesmaids won't give you any pushback about wearing black. They'll love being able to wear their dresses again, which isn't always the case with bridesmaid dresses, as you may know.
What you may want to do is to have the black bridesmaid dresses knee-length so that there is a distinct differentiation between your full-length bridal gown and the much shorter bridesmaid dresses.
- When wearing a full-length black bridal gown, you probably would not wear a black veil out of respect for various religious beliefs. A greyish-silver-white veil would be lovely or a decorative hair ornament.
- You can please your mother with a compromise by choosing white flowers for all the bouquets and boutonnières.
