Can I Wear Black to a Wedding?

The age old question… CAN you wear black to a wedding?!

If you’re the sort of person who wears black every day (we don’t blame you – it oozes sophistication), then you’re in luck – YOU CAN.

Wedding guests need to dress appropriately, both looking stylish and reserved. Make sure you’re not too over the top (You don’t want to upstage the bride), so no eccentric colours or patterns, and certainly not a full length dress!

Black is nowhere near as upstaging as wearing white or cream… However, maybe it’s best if you don’t turn up looking like Morticia Addams, or as if you’ve dressed for a funeral.

Lucky for you, we’ve got all the answers.

Choose something that isn’t just all black, add another colour or a different texture, such as the Rhodium Jumpsuit or Neon Dress by Atom Label.


                                     Dare Label Slash Neck Dress – Black                             Atom Label Radon Dress – Black

If you’re wanting to be a little more understated, try a sophisticated LBD, like the Slash Neck Dress from Dare Label, or the Radon Dress from Atom Label, and pair with some different coloured accessories.

If you’re still unsure, grey is a nice mid-way alternative. Here are some of our favourites:
