Nice dress. You got it in white?

Would you wear black on your wedding day? Vera Wang thinks you should. Yesterday at Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2012 in New York, Wang showed a witchcraft inspired collection of tumbled and draped tulle gowns, mostly in black.

Would you wear black on your wedding day? Vera Wang thinks you should. Yesterday at Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2012 in New York, Wang showed a witchcraft inspired collection of tumbled and draped tulle gowns, mostly in black.

While I’m all for shaking up tradition – and let’s not forget, the white wedding dress only came in to play when Queen Victoria started the trend in 1840 - the wedding industry do love to throw up some weird and wonderful ideas that only 0.001% of the population would ever consider. I blame monotony.

I can understand it - creating a new line of ivory dresses every six months or styling a bridal fashion shoot every couple of weeks must get a little samey. But when will they understand that brides only have a year of wedding planning – in real time that’s about two months of dress hunting and 6 issues of bridal magazines – and it’s not fun to have your window spoiled by designers creating divisive black dresses, and stylists shooting fashion inspired by birds of prey because they want to try something new for their portfolio. If ever there was a time not to be divisive, your wedding is it.

No doubt about it, Wang’s gowns are beautiful. But can we have them in white please?
