Even though in some cultures black is associated with mourning periods, this color remains a symbol of refinement and elegance. Thus, most brides decide to ask their bridesmaids to wear black dresses on the wedding day. Black is a traditional color, very chic and easy to accessorize. Even the simplest black dress can be turned into a gorgeous gown using the right accessories.

Depending on the type of wedding you are having, you can choose for your bridesmaids long, sophisticated dresses or cocktail black dresses, which are less formal and can be worn at destination weddings. This classical color will compliment the bride and make her stand out more. Moreover, black dresses will allow the bridesmaids to match the grooms men suits. Choosing black bridesmaid dresses is a wise decision because they are not only absolutely fabulous but also very practical. Your bridesmaids have the opportunity to wear them again at other events. Black bridesmaid dresses are very stylish and comfortable and they can be worn in any season or holiday. Properly accessorized, these dresses can be suitable for Christmas weddings or go perfectly with Valentine’s Day decorations.

In order to add a touch of romance, choose lovely flower bouquets for your bridesmaids to hold when walking down the aisle. Small and delicate bouquets made of red roses or fragrant, white calla lilies will go amazing with the red dresses. Your bridesmaids will look stunning. Also, if you want to soften all that black, consider adding a few ribbons of a different color.

Another reason for which black dresses are highly recommended for bridesmaids is that this color is able to compliment all skin tones and hair colors. This way, you won’t have to worry your bridesmaids will seem too pale or too colored. Moreover, these dresses are quite flattering for almost all body shapes. In case one of your bridesmaids is plus sized or even pregnant, a black dress will make her look a bit thinner.
