Black Dresses for Wedding Guests

Gone are the days when a black dress was considered off-limits for wedding attire. As long as you choose a chic little black dress that has plenty of festive personality, you’ll be in good form.

Black dresses are particularly great choices for evening semi-formal weddings and a great go-to dress when the dress code is a little unclear.  Here are some Dress for the Wedding-approved picks for black dresses for weddings from our sponsors and affiliates.

Check out these pages if you need Black Dresses for Bridesmaids or Black Dresses for Mothers of the Wedding instead.
