Black Wedding Gowns...Embrace or Disgrace?

Brides are getting bold with their wedding gown color choices nowadays. A friend of mine got married last year in a manatee grey gown; another friend in a red gown. Those colors mentioned are still acceptable even for the superstitious few; black, however, is a taboo. A black wedding gown is said to bring bad luck to the couple. Majority of the wedding invites I received comes with a no black request.

I love black. Majority of my clothes are in this hue. It's figure-friendly and elegant. Even the chintzy designed gowns become tolerable in black. Picture yourself walking down the aisle in the Dior Couture black gown below {third photo} while the orchestra is playing Air on a G String; only the aisle is illuminated. Pretty dramatic, isn't it? 

But, no. I still prefer the traditional white - ivory or cream - wedding gown . Not because of superstition or anything, but because I'm simply an old soul in many ways. What about you? Do you like black wedding gowns?
