Style & Trend
Here’s why we love beautiful black bridesmaids dresses…
Elegant, modern, unconventional, cool… if that's how you imagine your big day, then black bridesmaids dresses are the perfect choice. What’s more, no matter how many on-trend colours come and go, nothing ever looks as sophisticated or as timeless as a black evening gown. It really is an option that never fails!
Embrace the dark side
Forget the old rules that black is too sombre or too dark. It’s ideal for a black tie wedding, a formal manor house setting or a contemporary chic urban venue. You can also make the look more playful, with bright white flowers, and splashes of gold or vibrant red.
Then, when the confetti’s all tidied away, black is the perfect shade for your maids to wear again and again. So, it’s great value for money and great for the planet. No one ever had too many little black dresses!
Sound good? Then take a peek at some of our fabulous black bridesmaids dresses below and you’ll see exactly what we mean…
Our bridesmaids dresses come in six different designs, so there’s a look to suit every single maid. Pretty Bella has a dainty blouson top with flattering pleats. The stylish A-line skirt is very easy to wear, while the low dipped back is super attractive but high enough to offer support and coverage.
Thea keeps it simple and sweet with delicate spaghetti straps and a chic pleated bodice. At the back there’s a dipped V-neck, leading to the lightweight chiffon skirt, which has clever ruching at the waist to create shape and movement.
Our asymmetric Eden dress looks amazing in black. This elegant one-shoulder, draped dress in lightweight chiffon has a cool contemporary feel that’s only enhanced by a sophisticated black colour choice.
Haven’s off-the-shoulder straps are bang on trend, and also a great look for maids who want to flatter the tricky upper arm area. Don’t forget you can also combine your black bridesmaids dresses with some of our other shades. Try plum purple, deep burgundy, silver grey or dark navy for a mix ’n’ match made in heaven!
A black tie event
Laila is a great look for a black tie wedding, as the smart pleated bodice and the delightful cowl back give the design the feel of evening wear. Pair with simple sandals and perhaps an Art Deco hair comb to complete the look.
Lastly, we have stunning Rosa. With its modern draped bodice and its lightweight angel sleeves, this is a design that suits absolutely everyone. It looks great in every single colour but we particularly love it in stylish black. We hope you do too!
Well, we hope we’ve convinced you that, ‘black is the new black’ when it comes to your bridesmaids dresses. Don’t forget you can also add our dainty Charm belt, in matching black or another complementary colour, to any of these styles. Plus, we have lots of hair accessories, robes, pyjamas, gifts and more that we know your maids will love. After all, happy maids equal a happy bride!
