Will black wedding theme catch on?

The colour schemes used at upcoming weddings could be set for a huge change after Vera Wang released a full range of black wedding dresses.

Mail Online pointed out that the pieces unveiled by top designers tend to have a major impact on the overall wedding scene, so there may be fewer women in white at nuptials from next year.

If the colour scheme at the ceremony must complement black, there is no telling how the trend will affect the decoration of event spaces for post-wedding celebrations.

“Widely considered to be one of the most influential bridal designers, Wang is certainly no stranger to subverting current tradition, regularly designing wedding gowns that run the gamut of the colour chart in dove greys, pale mint or indeed black,” noted the newspaper.

It pointed out that the designer has created dresses for Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Chelsea Clinton for their big days, but none of those were made of black material.

According to myfashionlife, the Wang collection was presented at Bridal Fashion Week and is inspired by a “witchcraft” theme, although the wedding garments still feature the designer’s trademark look despite their radical colour.

The blog questioned whether many people would be willing to wear black on their wedding day, but suggested plenty of celebrities will be begging to don one of the frocks at awards ceremonies such as the Oscars.
