The New Black

Alright, we're just going to say it right off the top. At the risk of stepping on the toes of the "goth" and the "ultra-trendy" crowds, this is one of those trends to avoid. We're talking about the black wedding dress. It's true that several designers are sending black wedding gowns down the runway in their new collections. And yes, we know Jessica Alba did it. Here's a pic:

But she's a Hollywood star and may have many more weddings to repair the damage. And yes, it may seem avant garde right now but what will you think when you see your wedding pictures 5 or 10 years from now. Save yourself the heartache. There are lots of other ways to show your indie bride (or anti-bride) streak. Don't let your walk down the aisle resemble a walk on the dark side.

No digging the black wedding gown look. It looks boring and sad.
Sarah Jessica Parker did it and claims she regrets it too.

I didn't know she did it, too!
