Black and white is a huge color trend for 2010 weddings. Chic, striking, and very of the moment, it can be an excellent theme for a wedding. Get your wedding planning off to a running start by picking one of these perfect wedding gowns for a black and white wedding.
There is no doubt that Vera Wang is at the forefront of the black and white wedding gown trend this season. A large number of her gowns feature black sashes around the waist, the neck, or even draped asymmetrically across the bodice. The style of the sash matches the feeling of the gown, so a crisp silk gazar V-neck gown with a more traditional silhouette is accented with a tailored black accent at the waist with jeweled embellishment, while a floaty gown of layered fragile tulle with a deconstructed style features a wispy black tie around the neck.
For a more traditional bridal gown with black accents, consider Romona Keveza's full skirted strapless wedding dress with the sweetheart neckline and draped bodice. The shape is pure romance and bridal fantasy, while the beaded black belt at the waist adds gravitas and a modern flair. It would be a stunning choice for a black tie wedding with a black and white theme. Sparkling accessories, such as crystal bridal jewelry sets are the ideal accents for formal bridal gowns.
Black and white are naturally very chic, so another great option is a slinky sheath gown with a black ribbon at the waist, such as one made by Elizabeth Fillmore. It is the type of dress that would look equally at home on the Red Carpet of a glamorous premiere, save for the bridal veil. With a plunging neckline and black ribbon, this is a gown which is perfect for a bride who has a great figure and wants to make a statement when she walks down the aisle. An arm bouquet of white calla lilies tied with a black ribbon would be a fabulous bouquet with this wedding dress.
Jenny Packham also does a great bridal gown with a black accent. One of her standout designs is a slender strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline. At the neckline is a tiny keyhole cutout accentuated by a pert black bow. It is just the perfect little touch, and would be a wonderful dress for a bride who prefers a mostly white gown with just a delicate black accent for a surprise. Bridal jewelry sets with long crystal earrings would be lovely with the swingy skirt of this slender wedding gown.
Many other designers are offering great gowns for a black and white wedding, so by no means feel like these are your only options. Keep in mind, too, that it is usually possible to customize a bridal gown to make it fit the theme of your wedding. In other words, adding a black fabric belt, bow, or sash to the waist of a white wedding gown is a piece of cake. If the gown designer cannot make the change, the chances are that your seamstress can do it during alterations (just be sure to ask before buying the gown). There are other ways to add black accents to a white wedding dress, such as a white veil with a narrow black lace border, or a black lace shrug to wear for the ceremony. Or wear an all-white gown with black and white wedding jewelry, such as a pearl and jet crystal combination. And don't forget about your wedding bouquet as an accessory; a bouquet of white anemones with black centers would be gorgeous for a black and white theme wedding, whatever gown you happen to select. visit to http://www.weddingdressescheaps.org
