Black is often looked upon as a mourning colour and of course, an odd choice for a bride. But this season black wedding dresses are in and they are here to stay for a long time. 

Though this trend is new for us, actually it is a forgotten old one. Black used to be a common color for wedding dresses till 19th century. Everything has changed in 1840 when Queen Victoria decided to get married in a bright white wedding dress. After the Royal Wedding, all wealthy men insisted that their brides-to-be need to wear white on their wedding day to demonstrate prosperity and social class. After a while, this color became a symbol of feminine virginity and has kept as the normal color for brides to wear. 

It is a done thing to wear white in our days. But more brides think now that wearing white suggests innocence and obedience. This meaning makes them go with another color of dress for a wedding day.

The question here is: is it fine to wear black for your wedding? 

And we assure you that it is totally fine! Black is a positive, empowering color, especially for women. It symbolises power, mystery, strength, elegance, formality, and sophistication. Often it is the color of choice for women in positions of power and authority. It also shows your refusal to bow to traditional norms.
For example, today catholic brides in Spain might choose to wear black as a nod to the tradition: black signifies the bride’s commitment and devotion to her groom “until death does us part”.

When it comes to your wedding, analyze your situation. If your wedding is traditional and if your guests are conservative and religious, a black wedding dress may not be the right choice.
In other cases, if your wedding is modern, more liberal then go ahead and wear a black wedding dress and be proud of it.
