Black has always been a symbol of elegance and style. Every woman has that little black dress that she keeps for special occasions, but when it comes to wedding dresses, they are traditionally white, or some other bright color shade, but certainly not black. Traditionally wedding dress is white because it represents purity and innocence, but in the 21st century it loses it’s sense. That’s why many alternative brides choose to break the tradition and wear other colors for their wedding day, and some of them opt for black wedding gowns.

Some women just don’t like doing everything by the book, and we admire them for their courage.
