We’ve all been told black is a big “no no” for weddings, but is it?

Vera Wang just recently launched her Spring 2014 bridal collection featuring a gorgeous gamut of black and white wedding dresses.

And a quick flash back to weddings from previous years show a variety of gorgeous takes on black :

Remember this gorgeous Jose Villa and Once Wed collaboration? When I saw that Romona Keveza black wedding dress on Emily, I was instantly sold on black.

Oh and of course, there was this whole black and white French inspired style shoot, complete with black gloves, veil, and umbrella…stunning.

Adoring the big black sash on this bride. It’s just the right balance to the groom’s black tie and suspenders.

This bold Oscar de La Renta black and white striped wedding dress is kind of blowing my mind! Holy cow.

Loving this exquisite black lace and white tulle combo…which worked surprisingly well with the almond orchard.

So, what’s the verdict? Is black the new white?
