I've seen some beautiful black bridesmaids dresses but can I ask my bridesmaids to wear black? I think some of my bridesmaids would say no? What other dark colour bridesmaid dresses have people gone for?
If you’re worried about them saying no to black, what about a deep purple, navy blue or forest green? Suggest the black first, it is your wedding after all x
Your bridesmaids should respect your wishes as the bride, and if you have a colour theme in mind that is 100% yours and the grooms choice. Black bridesmaid dresses look beautiful, maybe create a mood board first to show them your vision 😊x
We have navy. They looked stunning ❤ but I have been to a wedding with black bridesmaid dresses and they were lovely. Your wedding so if that's what you want xxx
Their your bridesmaids you choose the colour and style, unless they are paying for the dress then they should get an input x
Why would anyone say no to wearing black?!? Do they not want to look good? 😂🤔🤷🏻♀️
I wore a black bridesmaid dress x
Why not add silver accessories to compliment the black dresses
They don’t get to say no, it’s your wedding, have what you want xx
I wore black as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding, you make them wear what you want x
My bridesmaids wore black sequins. Our whole wedding was black, white, Metallics and loads of candlelight. Looked amazing 👍🏻
We went navy as a black comprise lol xx
You can ask them
To wear whatever you like it’s your wedding xx
I know it's personal preference but if I was a bridesmaid I'd love a black dress, it's so flattering on everyone and easy to style 👌
I'd wear black, it looks great
My bridesmaid wore navy, like the best man. Honestly, I know more women that would be reluctant to wear pink than black at a wedding!
I wore a black bridesmaid dress to a friend's wedding... gorgeous! Had an ivory silky sash to match the shoes...
I wore black at my best friend's wedding as MOH. Her wedding was black tie. She wanted a 'cocktail party' feel for her wedding x
I would be all over a black bridesmaid dress 💃🏼
However maybe a dark navy or dark emerald?
Everyone loves black!! Honestly it's your day!!
You two get to choose, it’s your wedding. I do think if they are paying for the dress then they should get a big say in the style/cut of it so they are comfortable, but not the colour. I only had one bridesmaid (plus 3 flower girls), I let her choose the style and accessories but I chose the colour (I was paying but wanted her to be comfortable and feel awesome too). Just say this is our colour scheme, what styles were you guys thinking? Don’t ask about the colour, distract onto the style!
My bridesmaids wore black and they looked stunning x
I had black for my bridesmaids at my first wedding. They looked lovely and had ivory shawls to go with them
Black is a perfect colour it's so slimming that they all rock it. It's ur day u chose what the colour is and enjoy ur day xx
If my fiancé didn't want navy suits I'd of had black bridesmaids
My bridesmaids wore dark purple. They loved them and the colour made my gown just pop!
I wore black at a friend's wedding and it looked gorgeous x
I wore a black bridesmaids dress to my sisters winter wedding with a white faux fur wrap... it looked beautiful!😍😍
Your bridesmaids should respect your wishes! It’s your big day! Xx
I think in the right material, black bridesmaid dresses look classy! Go for it! Xx
It’s your wedding, your choice! X
I’m a bridesmaid next year and will be wearing black. Go for it! Xx
I’m having navy but I’d wear black if I was asked to be a bridesmaid & that’s what the bride wanted x
Mu daughter in law had black bridesmaid dress with a teal sash looked lovely as the men all wore black suits with teal ties . My bridesmaids will be wearing a floral dress in various colours with blue as the main colour. They look lovely too x
My bridesmaids wore black and they choose their own dress it was perfect x
Navy is lovely
I had navy for my wedding and some of the younger bridesmaids had trimmings of white too! But my mum's wedding her theme was black and white so me and my sister had black bridesmaid dresses! We wore white accessories with it! X
If that's what you want then I don't see why they should say no. It's your day and your colour scheme. I think black could look gorgeous.
I'm having navy so mine are dark and they look lovely xx
I'm alternative but lean towards goth, I've picked a white lace dress with a blush underlayer for my dress and my MOH is wearing a black dress I got for £45 in the sale from ASOS, they have some beautiful black bridesmaid dresses and they are really well made too for around £75 full price
I had navy and I think they were lovely. I considered black first but decided to go a little lighter with the navy.
I wore black as a bridesmaid for my best friend, it looked lovely xxx
It's your wedding!! Have you never seen 27 dresses!? You pick whatever you want and if they don't want to wear it, my reply would be, well you don't have to be a bridesmaid. You do you beautiful lady! ❤️
My friend had black dresses for her bridesmaid and dress code was black tie for guests....it looked stunning. Your wedding, your rules!
Have black if you want to have black, it’s YOUR wedding, and as above if they don’t like it or don’t want to wear it then they don’t have to be in your wedding party, but I wouldn’t dare tell a bride I’m not wearing the colour she picked for me it’s just rude x
Mine are wearing navy blue
Your wedding, your choice!!! Xxx
It’s your wedding. Do what you want!❤️
My bridesmaids wore black with an ivory sash. They all looked beautiful. My dress was ivory with black detail. Your wedding, your way.
We wore black at my best friends wedding and we were all happy with it xx
Mine all wore black - Christmas wedfing and they looked gorgeous
I’m having navy for my bridesmaids x
I had black evening dress for my bridesmaids she loved it.
My bridesmaids were navy blue, we had a winter wedding and they looked beautiful
My 4 bridesmaids wore black they were very happy with the colour choice and they looked great.
You can gave whatever colour you want its your special day x
Surely it’s your choice as the bride? I would never dream of refusing to wear a particular colour if I were a bridesmaids. Besides, Black is universally flattering so I shouldn’t imagine it’ll cause too much fuss 🖤
A black bridesmaid dress is one more likely to actually be able to be worn again. I would have worn mine again if I hadn't bust the zip and had to be sewn in on the wedding day and then cut out at night. 🙃
I had black bridesmaids dresses as our colour scheme was black and bright orange, they were Audrey Hepburn style dresses and they looked gorgeous, plus it’s a nice little dress that could be worn again
I'd say your bridesmaids where what you tell them to wear 🤷🏽♀️. I made that mistake and I didn't love mine but they were nice.
If you do compromise, what about a deep purple or burgundy?
My friend had her bridesmaids dressed in black. It was stunning. Xx
My bridesmaids are going to be in black! I have my maid of honour who is the same age as me (ie NOT 25 😏), my fiancé's daughter who is 27, my daughter and 2 of her friends who will be 14 at the time. With all the different ages, body shapes and personal requirements we decided on black as it is the easiest colour to get a match. Initially I was making them all bit more just the maid of honour one.
I wore black as a bride and my bridesmaids ivory ... I cant imagine though they would have disagreed the other way round.... I wore pink last year for my brother and that's a colour I would never wear x
My sister in law had black bridesmaid dresses with pale pink waist bands, they looked stunning. Your wedding, your choice.
tbh its the brides decision dont like it dont waste her wedding space, with weddings being brought down to 15 guests atm just be flattered they actually include you! x
