Although I doubt it’s what AC/DC had in mind, bridesmaids have increasingly been sporting black dresses, despite the traditional taboo on LBDs at weddings. Here are a handful of examples.

I love the simplicity of these strapless dresses that have a neckline that coordinates with the bride’s dress.

These ladies were also featured in the parasol post. Here’s what the bride had to say about the choice of black gowns: “My bridesmaids, to the dismay of my mother, wore black one shoulder floor length gowns. “

This last one might be my favorite. In the words of the bride: “…the fashion was chic and modern. Bridesmaids wore black dresses in a style that fit their personality…” That is the beauty of a LBD — chic, modern, and easily personalized.

What do you think about bridesmaids in little black dresses? Darling or depressing?
