Fall 2012 Trend Alert: Black & White Wedding Dresses

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something…black?!

Yes, if you’re going for one of this fall’s biggest trends in wedding dresses.

Gone are the days when a bride had to wear all white. Now any color is fair game. (Hey, it’s your big day and you can wear what you want to!) While black has long been viewed as a color reserved for fancy affairs, Halloween, funerals, or when one wants to look slim, it has a rightful place in this Fall’s bridal fashion, too.

Designers and stores alike are selling a variety of contrasting black and white wedding gowns that range from artistic and modern to soft and romantic. If you want to make a statement when you walk down the aisle, one of these frocks just might be “the one.” (No Halloween or gothic-theme required!)

Flirty vintage. The bow on this Jenny Packham dress gives it a playful look, while the beaded black lace bolero completes this vintage look.

Black, nude, and oh so romantic! These aren’t quite black and white, but they’re Vera Wang. We just couldn’t resist throwing these fantastically intricate and delightfully romantic dresses into the mix.

The trifecta! This simple, but sassy dress from David’s Bridal is not only black and white, it’s convertible! (Perfect if you want two dresses, but can only afford one!) Wear it long for the ceremony and then ditch the detachable train for the reception to get down on the dance floor.
