Once upon a time, it would have been forbidden to wear black to a wedding but that seems to have changed. The colour, black has moved on from the colour that depicts mourning to a colour that represents class, elegance, drama, versatility and more. Nigerian brides have caught on to this and are dressing their bridesmaids in black.
