One word of advice as you narrow down your search for the perfect dark wedding dresses: check the bridesmaid section of stores! While a lot of traditional bridal shops stock mostly white and off-white for wedding dresses, you can find a great selection of alternative ideas in the bridesmaid dresses…or even in prom dress stores!

Now, let’s check out some of my favorite colors for a dark dress!

1. Black and Silver

Christina Wu '15531'

Who would have thought that black and silver would look so perfect together? This bride’s dress is dark but the lace is just enough to soften it.

Soften the look by putting your bridal party in brighter colors. Pink goes fabulous with black!

2. Navy

Navy blue is one of those fabulous colors that go great with just about any color scheme. I really love the look of plum for the bridal party, though.

Of course, you could also break with tradition entirely and put the rest of the bridal party in white!

4. Grey

Creature of Habit 'Custom Tulle'

Dark grey is a great color for an outdoor wedding. During fall and winter, this color totally pops! If you need some ideas for dresses that complement this color, look to metal tones or other jewel tones.

5. Green

Sareh Nouri 'Emerald Strapless'

A green wedding dress has a very earthy vibe, especially when you keep it simple! This dress is beautiful through and through.

Choosing bridal party colors that go good with green can be a bit of a challenge. I would stick to earthy tones, like this dress:

Of course, you can really go green and choose different shades of color for your wedding party!

I’m personally partial to pink for bridesmaid dresses, which is funny because I’m not usually a pink person! While I recommended hot pink to go with black, I think a calmer pink would be perfect with gray. Try this one:
