Beautiful dress design, and it would look lovely with silver.  Smiley

If it's a conservative church, though, they might get a little weird about the sleeveless/strapless thing.  You might want to have a little shrug or wrap just in case.

That dress looks amazing! I was going to say that I think the dress would look awesome in a really deep brown with a taupe/beige underlay or maybe a contrasting color but red or silver as an underlay would look really nice and would be more fitting to your original idea Smiley

If it's a black tie wedding, I guess it would be okay. But it seems to make a statement you don't really want to make. At least I hope you don't want to make.  as to it being in a Catholic church, I'm sure you won't burst into flames, so what does it matter if you walk inside just to show your respect?  I don't see why you have to go in protest, its disrespectful to your mother, and I hope your dress wont do the same.

Maybe it's a regional thing, but I really don't see a problem with a black dress.   My friend got married (in a church) last year and all the bridesmaids wore black dresses with sage green sashes.

I think the design you chose is going to look beautiful no matter what color you decide on.

i LOVE the design.  LOVE it! 

and yea, black to a wedding was never a no no here... maybe just check with her... but it should be fine, especially a dress as beautiful as that drawing.

You really need to ask your mother. Its her wedding and she's the only one that can tell you whether its ok or not.

If it's that late, I would think it's formal.  If I remember all my ettiquitte books.

i dont think you should go all black.

i like the silver ideas but i have one thing to say about that - by your icon pic you look very pale - but you also seem to(?) have dark hair so silver will either work cuz of your hair or wash you out becasue of your complection (pale blond - knows from experience)

what if you did like a deep violet or really dark blue - like cerulean but almost black? black isnt all that bad though. you can always wear something more plain to the actual ceremory and your awesome dress to the reception - i work benquets and see it all the time, hell sometime the bride even changes out of her gown!!

I love it..but one thing is its superstition not to wear black to wedding because its considered to be wishing bad luck on the couple.
