Black wedding dresses

Black wedding gowns have moved out of goth territory and into the mainstream fashion world. Well, maybe.

The Huffington Post offers this photo gallery of Vera Wang's Fall 2012 Bridal Collection, which is heavy on tones like nude and black. Coincidentally, I viewed the gallery shortly after spotting a silver wedding dress during a Facebook stalking session.

I've never been a fan of puffy white wedding gowns, and to some extent I find the unconventional hues appealing. But it's hard to break tradition when it comes to wedding fashion.

Then again, we were told for decades to never wear white to a wedding unless you're the bride. Now white seems like one of the most popular wedding party colors. I'm talking to you, Kardashians. And Pippa Middleton. Wouldn't it be weird if we got to a point where everyone except the bride wears white to a wedding?

What do you think?
