The Bride Wore Black-ish

I like the idea of a wedding gown of a different hue, quite intriguing is the black wedding gown. I must admit I was a little put off at first..but it's grown on me in a chic, irreverent way.



Isn't it stunning! It's an evening dress by Lanvin from 1939. Steel-gray silk taffeta embroidered with metallic sequins and pink beads. Swoon.

I also like the idea of having a seamstress removing the bottom tier after the nuptuals and viola, a new LBD added to your collection. I'm all about recycling.

Gorgeous! I couldn't do a black gown but I would love to see someone else do it! :)
