Black Autumn Wedding Dresses

Now before you completely say no way, let us explain why a black wedding dress is a perfect idea if you’re having an autumn wedding. White wedding dresses are traditional because white symbolises purity and innocence. You’d assume that black symbolises the opposite, but it doesn’t! A black wedding dress actually is a sign of the bride’s loyalty to her husband until death. The gowns reflect power and sensuality. So if you want an alternative look or maybe don’t agree with what a white wedding dress represents, black is the answer! Plus, it goes without saying that these are perfect for the spooky season!



This Needle & Thread dress is inspired by 1930s Hollywood glamour. Beautifully designed with diamond tulle details, this makes for the perfect wedding gown. This real wedding features a bride who wore the Champagne version of this dress at her reception.
