Black bridesmaid dresses...

...thoughts? I'm been a bridesmaid MANY a time..and never once have I "worn the dress again" as every bride I know says. So for my wedding I'm having my bridesmaids pick whatever dress they want, as long as it's black. We're doing a garden ceremony, and I'm having bright flowers to brighten it up--yellows, pinks, oranges. Anyone else doing black bridesmaids dresses?

    I did black dresses and they looked wonderful. Definitely a classy choice, and black can go with pretty much anything...plus hopefully it will be a dress they can wear again! Here's a pic of mine.

    I let my BMs pick whatever black dress they wanted. I liked it because I didn't have to worry about figuring out budgets or styles that each girl liked - they got to pick whatever they wanted. I think it looked nice but I might be a little biased Smiley smile.

    My matron and maid of honor both wore black dresses and they looked great. My maid of honor was even 9 months pregnant and in the photos you can barely tell.

    I think it is a good idea if it is part of your colors.

    I'm doing blask bridesmaid dresses. I'm also allowing each girl to pick a different style so long as it goes with the theme, black satin, with a rhinestone design. So far everyone has found a beautiful dress.

    I am also doing black dress for the MOH and BMs. I absolutely love it! That was my whole purpose, I wanted them to hopefully wear the dress again. We are doing an accents of yellow.

    My bridesmaids will be wearing black dresses. I only gave them three restrictions on their dresses..... 1. It must be black 2. Tea length or longer. 3. Something that they love and will want to wear again! They were all sooo excited! I told them not to worry about matching because the girls heights and sizes are sooo varied. Find what they love and run with it.

    My sis had her bridesmaids in a black and white dress and I think it looked awesome! Check out the pic (I'm the chubby bridesmaid, lol). Here's the original dress from David's Bridal.

    Yup, I'm having my bridesmaids wear black dresses. Only thing I ask is that they're knee length and sphagetti strap, other than that, they can pick. I'm going to try to liven it up with different color sashes that match our wedding colors (light purple, silver, and of course black). I'm really hoping they come up with something cute and that they could wear again.

    I feel sooo much better with all the other brides doing black as well. Has anyone made comments about it to you? My bridesmainds, of course, love it because they can actually wear something that looks good on them. I've had some weird reactions of other people when I tell them I'm doing black dresses though. Whatever--my wedding, not theirs!

    My MOH is wearing a black dress of her choosing and we're just going to get a fuchsia sash to go with it. FH chose all black for the guys as well and then they will just have a fuchsia tie (although it won't be a solid color it will be mixed with our other colors, black and silver).

    I am! I bought my girls a two piece black dress, each top is different (I have 3 girls). They're from Davids Bridal in the separates section in black chiffon.
