Best Wedding Guest Dresses In Black? Yes, you can!

Black Wedding guest dress

Wedding etiquette question answered, yes, you can wear black wedding guest dresses. Wedding guest myth number 1… basted…

You can wear all black to a wedding? I thought it was a no-no but in most cultures it is not.

“As long as a black dress feels festive, it’s fine for a wedding!” according to the author Kimberly Schlegel Whitman of the best selling book Wedding Workbook, The: A Time Saving Guide for the Busy Bride.

I was invited in Lydia’s Gkoritsa wedding last Sunday in Paros and I brought with me a black long Grecian gown by Raoul I bought this winter. Long black dresses are such a big trend this summer and I couldn’t resist.

I fell in love with the incredible shot in Numéro, July 2013, featuring a black Roberto Cavalli SS 2013 embroidered gown I had to share it along with some amazing long black dresses worn by style icons. Finding the perfect dress that makes you stand out in a good sense and simultaneously fits the dress code of the occasion a can be frustrating. I say you can wear a long black gown and let the beautiful bride shine in white!

  1. Ohh yeah, black dresses do look awesome! I guess I would not wear black to a wedding because I usually wear black and I feel like putting on some pastels to weddings for a change:) But I don’t think it’s inappropriate. Love the collection of your picks!

  2. These dresses are so beautiful and I think it’s great that it’s finally okay to wear black to a wedding!
