20 Edgy and Cool Black Wedding Dresses That Will Save You Money

via Parker

Contrary to popular belief, you absolutely do not have to wear white on your wedding day! Many brides have abandoned the traditional shade — along with similar ones such as ivory or eggshell — in favor of prints and color. This includes black gowns!

Black wedding dresses are sleek, elegant, and most of all, unique. There are even a number of practical reasons to opt for a dark dress, like the fact that they’re way easier to keep clean compared to white ones. Even better, black wedding dresses are easier to wear again after your big day.

Lastly, you’re almost guaranteed to save money since you won’t be limited to bridal boutiques or wedding designers — the latter of which may offer their existing dress designs in alternative colors, though you’ll be the one to foot the bill for the change. On the other hand, black wedding dresses can be found almost anywhere, and at half the price.
