Black Dresses for Wedding Guests
Gone are the days when a black dress was considered off-limits for wedding attire. As long as your event is in the afternoon or evening, it's fine to choose a chic little black dress that has plenty of festive personality. Add some sparkling accessories, you'll be in good form. If it's a daytime wedding, then perhaps a black dress with some floral print or pattern is a better choice!
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 to wear for weddings from our sponsors and affiliates.
