Once you’ve found your dream Venus Bridal gown, it’s time to start thinking about those other important dresses – that’s right, we’re talking Bridesmaid Dresses! Hopefully your girls can count on you to pick out something they’ll look amazing and feel confident and comfortable in; but perhaps the biggest decision is what colour those gorgeous gowns will be?
Today we’re focussing on black bridesmaid’s dresses and why they’re well worth considering.
Firstly, black is of course famously versatile; so, whatever theme or colour palette you’re planning for your big day, there will be a black bridesmaid dress to compliment it. Secondly, everyone looks good in black, so your best girls will certainly thank you for choosing it! (Especially as a black gown is most likely to be something they can wear again after your big day.) Better still, if your bridesmaids have very different figures and you plan to let them choose different styles of gown, then black helps to tie a variety of different designs together.
The Venus bridesmaid’s collection includes a great variety of black options, but here are just three of our favourites.
This full-length gown is elegantly simple, yet the lace illusion neckline adds detail and interest. If you’ve chosen a minimalist style gown for yourself, it makes sense to go with less elaborate bridesmaid dresses too and this one is as stylish as it is flattering.
If you’re planning a wedding that’s set to be a glamorous, black tie, red carpet sort of affair, this stunning strapless floor length gown in chiffon and lite satin will fit the bill perfectly. It’s a timelessly elegant shape that looks great on a variety of shapes and you can speak to your wedding boutique about altering the length so that everyone can have the perfect fit.
Short black bridesmaid dresses are another great option that’s fantastically versatile. This gorgeous one shoulder all over lace dress is modern, glamorous and it’s an option that your girls will be able to wear again.
When it comes to accessorising black bridesmaids’ dresses, the only limit is your imagination! You can go as colourful as you like with flowers and as dramatic or understated as you like with jewellery and accessories. You could also choose gifts that could be used to accessorise the gowns, perhaps matching bracelets or earrings, or maybe you could get each girl the same clutch bag to use on the big day, but in a variety of colours?
Are you planning to have your best girls in black on your big day? Or have we at least convinced you to consider it? Let us know which of our black bridesmaid’s dresses is your favourite – and how you’re planning to style them to suit your big day!
