Black Bridesmaid Dress Ideas
In this article, we’ll give a little style advice and inspiration for your bridesmaids’ style using Black as the dress color choice… and how to keep it traditional, or add a little contemporary edge to your bridemaids’ look.
Black gives an instant feel of elegance and edge to anyone wearing it. Traditionally, it’s “the” background to any wedding next to “white”.As always, the length you choose will help drive the look and mood you want to set. It goes without saying, that choosing black for your bridesmaid dresses will work in any length.
With the clean lines of this Victoria Beckham dress, you add some fabulous strappy sandals with a little sparkle for your bridesmaids. Just the right amount of sparkle and no need for blingy accessories with this look!
If you want to add a little edge to your wedding “feel” choosing a black dress in a contemporary (non-traditional) design will give you the mood you are trying to achieve.

We love the ruffles in this dress, so girly! For a contemporary edge, add a pair of booties for your bridesmaids. Real Wedding Planner Advice: Soften the look with a soft petaled bouquet to subtly mirror the texture in the ruffles of the dress. Gorgeous for a fall/winter wedding, but would easily work for a formal inside spring/summer wedding as well!
Black is so versatile! Choosing a dress that combines different textures in black keeps the look elegant and contemporary. Real Wedding Planner Advice: Remember to keep the accessories to a minimum with a textured dress. With the beautiful lace in this dress, LSE recommends even keeping the shoe choice simplified. Keeping to 1 accessory only adds to the elegance of this look.
Here’s another example of “Keep it simple”. With the above dress as an example, let the dress design and fabric do the talking.
Real Wedding Planner Advice: Remember, as much as you love your bridesmaids, and want to make them feel special on YOUR wedding day, you want them to be the “base” background look for your wedding… not the focal point, so keep their accessories to a minimum.
Choosing black is also a fabulous way to give your bridesmaids the option of wearing their dress again after your wedding.
