Avril Lavigne's Black Wedding Gown: See the Full-Length Photo

Avril Lavigne Black Wedding Dress Mark Liddell

Avril Lavigne promised a unique gown for her nuptials to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, and she certainly didn’t disappoint.

But rather than the ripped up and dyed dress she was envisioning, the star, 28, wore a black Monique Lhuillier creation accented with matching jet roses, a black lace-edged veil attached to a jeweled headband and, of course, her massive engagement ring.

Kroeger matched his bride in an all-black ensemble at their intimate July 1 wedding, which he accessorized with a goatee and beaded bracelet.

This is the first time we’ve gotten a full-length glimpse at the gown, and we were struck by the similarities to her Vera Wang gown from her 2006 wedding to Deryck Whibley. Both featured a sweetheart neckline, perfectly matched roses and subtle lace details.

But the black gown definitely feels true to Lavigne’s punk-princess vibe, and we love the coordination with the groom. Tell us: What do you think of her dramatic dress?

Black is worn at funerals. I guess she wants to buck tradition by wearing black at her wedding, but, sorry, she still looks funereal…let’s see if her black dress is an accurate predictor of how long her marriage lasts :-o

I don’t mind the dress, but they should have had some color somewhere! It just looks so bland and morbid. A pop of red in the roses and his vest would have made it better. And a wedding should be a union of both of their styles, this is all Avril. He looks totally uncomfortable by his smile to his hand in his pocket. But, I guess if their happy then it’s all good.

I hope the marriage has more authenticity than this overly image conscious wedding costume suggests. It lacks something…important. Like confidence.

Jen on

Looks like a goth prom picture. A black dress wouldn’t be so bad, but add some color SOMEWHERE.

Ali on

Couldn’t she have run a brush through her hair? Or at least do it differently for her wedding?

Lisa on

Maybe its just me but neither one of them looks truly happy. Their expressions look strained and forced.

Nancy on

She looks beautiful, but I don’t like the all black either. I guess I still prefer the traditional white or off-white or cream for brides. Black is just not special enough and too common a dress color that we could wear every day. A good idea would have been a white dress with grey and black on the bottom, like Melissa (another poster suggested). If she wanted to be different, that would’ve been a better choice. But oh well, she still looked gorgeous. Congrats Avril!

Honey on

Her dress is nice but like a lot of people have said its to costume looking, with the all black acessories (flowers, vail) I think she should have taken a page out of an other fellow Canadian celeb who was married this year that wore a black dress and broken it up with some color mixed in to the black flowers. Shane grimes made it look nice, where Avril made it look like some kid playing dress up.
But all that matters is that she was happy with her choice.

Sandy on

YUK… She always looks washed up and dirty. Not to mention, could she have done something with her hair??? Maybe wash it and brush it?
