Dark and sultry silhouettes are always a style winner, and are especially flattering for differing body shapes. With black designs, bridesmaids have the advantage of wearing their gown again for future occasions or events should they want to. The addition of black tulle, beads, lace, knots and sparkle can offer a chic, sophisticated flair to bridal affairs.

Weve compiled an array of black gowns that are ideal for this spooky time of year, without a drop of fake blood or a zombie in sightor even the horror of puffed sleeves
