Creating a black and white inspired wedding doesn’t have to be centered purely on the styling and decor of the day – creating this palette with your wedding party’s attired is another striking way to create black and white wedding dreams, and is a super elegant and simple palette that will almost always work for everybody. Tessa from Bridesmaids Only has a few options to consider for your wedding party, and how to style each look!

Black and/or bridesmaid dresses are the perfect colours for every style of wedding and compliment all the bridesmaids’ skin tones and hair colour. Black is also the most flattering of colours which is why Coco Chanel turned the Little Black Dress into something so special that has never aged!

The Zara gown by Talia Sarah (our in-house locally designed collection) in black is the perfect bridesmaid dress for a wedding that moves from day to night! She features tulip sleeves and is made from luxe chiffon which gives a gorgeous romantic silhouette. The high/low design has the added bonus of showing off your cute heels! Throw on a fun, glitzy belt for more glamour, or even tie a black sash to soften the waist. The Zara in white is also an amazing choice for the bride herself to wear as a wedding gown for a breakfast wedding, elopement, or reception dress. It is also popular for the bridal party seeking a white dress that will not clash with the bride herself.

Jenny Yoo has a beautiful collection of elegant evening satin bridesmaid dresses that can be easily mixed and matched. They are the perfect modern bridal look – we instantly picture these bridesmaid designs being worn for a spectacular black-tie evening city wedding. Now is the time to pull out those heels and make a statement, either go glossy black or add a little bling with some sparkles and diamantes heels. While it is true, black goes with everything, nothing screams elegance, and black tie like gold or rose gold drop earrings with a teardrop diamante, it makes you feel like royalty (you will thank us later). Featured here are the Brenna and Lena gowns in black Satin back crepe.

Whether it is a walk down the beach, through the forest or a chic boho picnic, the ultra-fresh look of the luxe stretch jersey in white by Tania Olsen is a bridesmaid must-have. Amber and Arianna are our personal picks for any of these vibes and you could easily pair them with some white or tan heels, wedges, or go barefoot! The Sandra and Claire gowns are a beautiful choice for a more ethereal look and move to a sunset wedding perfectly with that extra little touch of detailing they have. Our favourite feature is that they cascades into a subtle split skirt. The fabric is extremely comfortable, flattering, and versatile. It is so comfortable that when we took a collection to a bridal expo our models breathed a sigh of relief when they got to take a spin down the catwalk in them!

A beautiful silky smooth satin cami set and robe are a fabulous choice for bridesmaid proposal boxes and the perfect getting-ready outfit for the morning off. You can create a fun matchy vibe by having each bridesmaid in black and the bride in white! Or even vice versa! The contrast will mean that the bride pops and the bridal party will look glamorous. Throw on some boudoir heels or glitzy slippers to lounge around in, grab some prosecco and enjoy the getting ready process in luxury. Take an Insta worthy photo that will pop and cause you to smile every time you look back on the photo. The getting ready moments are the ones to cherish with your girls and giggle through before the day gets serious. A gorgeous add on would be to personalise each set for your bridesmaids as a memento from the day.
