Whether it's a sash, a belt, or a floral appliqué, a touch of black gives feminine bridesmaid styles a modern edge.

The color black is a bridal trend that keeps getting bigger. It started out with a few black sashes on wedding gowns, moved into headpieces (black birdcage veils, anyone?), and at New York Bridal Fashion Week, we saw black details emerge as a new "notice me" addition to bridesmaid dresses. It's a modern, provocative way to make the ladies stand out.
