Black wedding dresses were the fashion during the second half of the 19th century when the color black was fashionable. Today most brides choose to wear white dresses, the color that is most popular in Western cultures. However, colored wedding dresses are gaining in popularity and there is no rule that says you can’t wear what color dress you would like to on your wedding day. Your wedding day is your day and if you want to be different or have an original look you can wear a black wedding dress. You do not have to please anyone but yourself. Modern women set their own fashions. Possibly a black wedding dress has a practical advantage too, you would get more wearings out of a black gown than a white bridal gown.
