How To Work Black Into Your Bridal Wear

Are you a non-traditional kind of bride?

Then take inspiration from the AW16 collections where several designers showed beautiful white dresses – of the non-bridal variety – that we feel could easily be adapted for a fresh modern take on the traditional white gown.

These ready-to-wear pieces are the perfect option for a style conscious bride or a spur-of-the-moment elopement to the south of France where touches of black add a little excitement and drama.?

Keep accessories to a minimum. Perhaps go for a simple pair of earrings or monochrome heels. For a little quirkiness, consider a black veil in the style of Sophie Theallet’s catwalk look or for those with an affinity to shock, opt for black patent Doc Martens.

Here’s our round-up of the best looks?
