Ensure your wedding is bang on trend with these black and white wedding dresses. Take a look – we think you’ll love them!

While we might not consider black a romantic wedding colour, it can lend an edge of elegance. 2018 sees black accents as a wedding trend, offering that monochromatic twist that adds a little drama and style. Let’s take a look at how you might add that black accent to your wedding outfit.

Accessorising with a black sash is the easiest way to add a black accent to your wedding dress, and it’s something you can do with many designs. We love the additional sparkle here, adding another element to the look.

Of course, a dress should look just as fabulous from the back as from the front. If you decide to have a sash or belt, be sure to tie it beautifully.

Separates can work well at weddings, particularly if you like the idea of changing your bodice or skirt for the evening celebration. We love this black ‘Bryce’ bodysuit with the delicate ‘Sawyer’ skirt by Marina Liana, a lovely summer option.

If you decide to go all out and wear black, make a dramatic entrance with the ‘Opera Noir’ dress by Ian Stuart. In black taffeta and nude with beaded lace, it’s a stunning choice for a winter wedding.

If you’re not convinced about wearing black but would like a monochrome colour scheme, choose black for your bridesmaids instead. These dresses look stunning with white bouquets.

Complete the look by carrying a white bouquet with a hint of black, perhaps through striking anemones, deep red flowers or the addition of black ribbon.
