Black is perhaps not the most obvious choice of colour for a bridesmaid dress, but these beautiful examples might make you consider it!

Classic and stylish, black is perfect for monochrome colour schemes and winter events. There is perhaps nothing more elegant than an evening wedding with black tie dress code and bridesmaids in black dresses. When it comes to practicality, black dresses are easy to find and are likely to be work again after the big day. You can also choose to accompany the dresses with colourful accessories should you wish to add a ‘pop’ of red or pink, for example. Let’s take a look at a few of our favourite styles.

Opting for black gives you a wonderful selection of evening gowns to choose from. We love this Lori Lee Cluster Maxi Dress, £169 from Coast. The shape is flattering and easy to wear, and the detail on the bodice adds interest.

These elegant black tulle dresses would work well throughout the year. If you’re concerned about having too much black at your wedding, these lavish blooms illustrate how stunning the addition of brightly coloured blooms can be.

Fun and fabulous, we love this one-shoulder design from Monsoon. The Zari dress is a reasonable price at £119 and certainly something your bridesmaids would wear again.

Who says black dresses suit only winter weddings? This more relaxed style works well at an outdoor summer celebration, particularly when accompanied with nude shoes and white bouquets.
