If you’re planning on wearing black to a wedding and you’re wondering about how to accessorize it properly, check out these top tips including finding the right wrap or cover-up, wearing the right jewelry, and finding the right shoes.

How To Accessorize A Black Dress For A Wedding

Make Sure You Don’t Steal the Spotlight

One of the most important things you need to keep in mind when dressing for a wedding is that your outfit should not work to outshine the bride. 

Black can certainly be a statement in clothing options, especially at a wedding where the bride’s white dress is supposed to be the star. Just make sure that your black dress is not too much of a statement outfit that takes attention away from the bride.

Choose the Right Wrap

If the wedding you’re attending is in the fall, winter, or spring, you will likely want to wear a jacket, cardigan, or wrap of some kind to help you keep warm. This cover-up can be an excellent way for you to bring some lighter colors or even brighter, patterned options to your outfit.

Wear Classy Jewelry

Jewelry can be a great option to add color, dimension, and class to your outfit. Plus, it is not dependent on the weather, so no matter the season, you can add earrings, bracelets, necklaces, or any other jewelry option to your outfit.

Some classic options are dangling diamond earrings or gold hoops, but more colorful options can also be a great choice if the wedding’s theme works with brighter color options.

Don’t Forget the Shoes

Finally, no outfit is complete without the right pair of shoes. Make sure you select options that are going to be comfortable enough to dance in at the reception, but that also work to elevate your look.

Heels, wedges, boots, flats, and sandals each have different aesthetics, but they can come in different colors and styles that can enhance your outfit in an understated but elegant way.
