Yay or Nay: Bridesmaids in black sequin dress

Y'all know I love black and these dresses look fab, but is black appropriate for a wedding? Are black bridesmaid dresses a 'do' or 'don't' ?

People can like limitations. Why can't you wear whatever colour you like for a wedding? I do not believe in all the those restrictions. If I feel its what I want, I will very much do it.

Unless you're the bride of frankenstein, don't see why you'd be drawn to black anything for your wedding.

Abegi, all these NAYS should park inside gutter jor. That was the reason we lived in fear dreading the colour RED as a wedding Aso-ebi for decades if no centuries, and alas! Someone started the Red trend and my wardrobe is filled with red Gele, over 15. YAY, YAY!! YAY!!! All the way. It is all about the celebrant and what she wants anyway.

orela dimples said...

but some ppl no dey reason ooo.black is not appropriate for a wedding n yet the groom n grooms men wear black suit in most weddings.
abeg hu dem dey mourn if black is for burial only.

Queen Bee said...

Can't imagine dat a bride's colors will be black and red!
I don't want to imagine how the hall and cake will look like.
Maybe the bride is a druggie constantly under the influence!

I think black is a bit doesn't fit, may seem to make people uncomfortable. But this is all a matter of personal preference, the black dress is also very good, if you can, you can find it here beautiful cheap wedding dresses.

God Bless the bride. She looked out for her bridesmaids completely. Not only do they look fab but they can recycle the outfit without any problems. Excellent choice!!!

I actually like the dress, but too much going on with these bridesmaids. Mesh hats and fans in red, they look like the devil's disciples.

Who says Black is only for funeral... why do we have the LBD (little black dress)? we wear black to work and parties are this funerals? if we can trace the history of weddings some centuries back we'll find out that wedding dresses were black.
somebody decided on a white dress and it has stayed with us from then till now. in my opinion a wedding dress should be anything you are comfortable in for the occassion.
As for the black bridesmaid dresses its a good contrast from the bride's dress which i guess was white... beautiful dress and they look "LAS VEGASish"
