This bridal market, dress designers shocked us all by showing wedding dresses in one of the most unexpected of shades.  While we’ve been seeing dresses from seasons past in muted shades of pink, blush, lavender, and even grey, some bridal designers really took the plunge by showing gowns in the inkiest of blacks.  Gasp.  Vera Wang was one who really switched to the dark side by showing nine … count ’em, nine black wedding gowns.  Her collection was fittingly named Witchcraft… and well, I kind of love it.  Behold:

Pretty glorious, right?  Black isn’t often associated with wedding gowns, but if you think about it, it seems a whole lot more practical (not to mention figure forgiving).  Have you ever seen the bottom of a wedding dress by the end of a wedding reception?  Yuck.  Can’t lie, if I didn’t have a dress already, these bewitching creations might even sway me over to the dark side… much to the chagrin of my mother, of course.
