If you are not sure about going all out, select a dress that captures the essence of a traditional ivory white wedding gown enhanced by intricate black lace appliqués. The added element of dark hand beaded lace is a great way to craft a daring yet elegant appearance.
Play around with the silhouette of the gown. An off-shoulder ball gown with a low décolletage or a trumpet gown with a deep-V neckline and a sheer tulle skirt are great options in order to achieve the perfect seductive, modern twist whilst making a fashion forward statement.

Bring out your inner fashionista and opt for accessories that encapsulate the monochrome trend. If subtle is your style, black hair accessories and delicate ornaments are the way to go! Stick to the basics yet add a few quirky essentials such as; a black hair tie or a pair of black chandelier earrings to amp up your style quotient. Accentuate that cinched waistline with a bridal belt paired with black stilettos alongside sheer stockings to further enhance your look.
Make use of black accents within your bridal attire for a distinctive yet sophisticated flair. The monochromatic colour palette with decorative accents gilded on wedding gowns is representative of a bride that is a class apart, giving you the best of both worlds- following tradition and going against the norm by keeping up with uber-chic couture trends!
