These days, black bridesmaid dresses have become very common, aside from in the most conservative or traditional families. As popular as they are, black bridesmaid dresses do present special questions, most notably, how to make them appear festive instead of somber. These are some of the best ways to make black dresses work beautifully for bridesmaids.
Black is by its nature, somber, yet weddings are supposed to be festive and joyous. Balance out the darkness of black bridesmaid dresses with flowers and accessories that add color or texture. When the dresses are short, you can have some fun with the shoes. Remember that the strappier the shoe is, the more wild the color can be without overpowering the entire outfit. Chartreuse, cobalt blue, and pink are all fun options. Be wary of red shoes which tend to make too bold a statement. Metallic neutrals are always pretty for bridesmaid shoes. Let each attendant choose her favorite pair of shoes in silver, gold, or bronze, for a style that will enhance both the bridesmaid dress and her shoe collection in general.
Customized sets of bridesmaid jewelry are another fantastic way to liven up black bridesmaid dresses. Sparkly crystal bridesmaid jewelry sets are ideal for evening weddings. Either go with classic clear crystals, or make a splash with crystals in your wedding colors. Don’t overlook what you can be done with wedding hair accessories, either. A brightly colored flower in the hair for an outdoor wedding or a sleek satin headband in a contrasting shade can go a long way towards breaking up too much black.
