And the Bride wore...

Hot off the runway...Black Wedding Gowns for Spring 2011!!!

While looking through the images from Spring 2011 Bridal Week & trying to pick my faves for the blog, I spotted something that I had to write about asap. The Black Wedding Gown is a growing trend in bridal fashion that I will probably never be onboard with, but fashion is art...right? Over the last several years, designers have been playing with color in their bridal collections. While I love the growing availability of gowns in fresh colors or colored accents, I'm not a fan of the black gown. I'm sure that designers, for the most part, only put their black wedding gowns on the runway for a dramatic effect. Nevertheless, Spring 2011 had its fair share of dark gowns.

Vera Wang may have inspired many designers Spring 2011 collections & added momentum to this trend with her Fall 2010 collection last October, debuting a black gown - as seen below.

I'm always a big fan of Vera Wang's use of color in her bridal collections, but this charcoal color is a little too close to black for my taste.

Ramona Keveza Spring 2011

This is truly a beautiful gown, but for a bride? What do you think?
