This is a guest post.
Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kris Humphries was celebrated around the world. The photographs of Kim’s special day featured in various media publications and cemented her position as one of the world’s most popular celebrities. Wearing a fabulous white wedding dress that made her look every inch the princess, Kim looked beautiful and so too did her bridesmaids. When preparing for a wedding there is a lot to organise but the biggest choice for any bride has to be the wedding gown. Most brides choose to wear white, but is black a modern alternative?
The bride doesn’t have to wear white
When looking for beautiful couture wedding dresses in New Jersey, white is the tip of the iceberg. There is no such thing as just ‘white’ anymore. You can choose ivory, off white, ice white or vintage white for starters. Then there are the more adventurous colours such as pink, red or even black. When planning a completely different wedding, roles can be reversed. Why not have the groom and his wedding party in white tuxedos with his wife-to-be donning a black wedding dress? By choosing a black couture gown, a bride will certainly stand out from the crowd and be remembered for many years to come.
Black is unique for a wedding gown
White has been the colour of choice for brides for hundreds of years. It was seen as a symbol of her purity and innocence. In modern days, this is less of an issue and so if a bride wants her wedding to be completely different, her gown can be partially or entirely black. Gothic Chic continues to be popular not just at weddings but other formal situations. If a bride wants to stand out in her photos, a black gown can be chosen and she can inform her guests to avoid wearing this colour. Therefore, her gown will be unlike what anyone else wears.
Couture dresses are available in many styles
As with other dress styles, a couture gown can be bought in many designs and styles. The bride could choose a long and flowing couture black dress with or without a long train or a figure hugging design with corset bodice. If a woman has an hourglass figure, choosing a wedding dress that clings tightly to her body is a great idea to emphasis curves and gives her the wow factor.
Bridesmaids can wear black
When Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries, she had many bridesmaids that all wore the same colour. Not only can a bride have a black wedding gown but the dresses that her bridesmaids wear can also be the same colour. The same design can be chosen for each bridesmaid or each bridesmaid could wear a completely different style. To continue with this colour scheme, the bouquets the bridesmaids carry could also be black.
