A black wedding dress reminds me of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her mother, who was always concerned about being correct and ladylike, expressed concern about superstition but didn't say a word about black breaking any etiquette rules.
Etiquette? Etiquette is treating your guests well, not the color of your dress. Women wear the little black dress to feel glamorous and sexy to festive occasions and I see nothing wrong with a black wedding dress.A black wedding dress reminds me of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

I need to do some searching to confirm this, but it's my understanding that other cultures use white for mourning and other colors for wedding. Assuming Vera Wang designs for the world - and not just the Unites States - I fail to see how black wedding dresses are for the bride that does not care about etiquette.Also, how on earth is the color of the dress tied to etiquette? IIRC, white wedding dresses became fashionable about 100 years ago.
My grandmother (who is 92 and got married when in her 20's) wore a black dress for her wedding. I'll have to let her know that she was approx 70 years ahead of the trend, and also not concerned with etiquette at all.I'm sure she and Grandpa will be tickled.
I plan on wearing a red gown. I am not Chinese. I just love red and look horrid in white. I have never dreamed of wearing a big white dress, or even the big wedding, but I've known since I was a tween I would someday wear a red gown to get married in.
The discussion of red wedding dresses made me think of this line from the "Golden Girls":Blanche: [Blanche explaining why she worn red at her wedding instead of white] Oh please, it's bad enough hearing all those snickers as you walk down the aisle, but me in white, even I couldn't keep a straight face.
