A new trend that has blossomed for the modern bride includes donning darker hues for dresses, such as black.

Google Trends had high searches for “black wedding dress” over the past 12 month. In Spring 2021 specifically, “black wedding dress” was searched more times than “white wedding dress” on Google.

The tradition of rocking white frocks to walk to the altar stretches back to the era of Queen Victoria. She famously wore the shade resembling purity when she married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg, who was also her first cousin, in 1840. She popularised the white colour style during the time and many other brides wanted to follow suit in an effort to mimic their monarch’s tastes. Can you rock black for your wedding?
