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?

It’s too much black. I think black roses are kind of tacky and her make-up (though it’s her signature look) looks messy. She could have made an effort to look a little nicer for her wedding.

If it’s what she wants and she’s happy with it, then we don’t need to comment. I wouldn’t want anyone telling me what to wear on my wedding day!

looks like she’s trying too hard….

the black dress suits her, but i think red roses would have made a more striking bouquet. the black roses seem to get lost in the sea of black clothes.

Morbid, in a “Herman Munster”, “Adams Family” kind of way.

The creepy black dress matches her creepy-looking husband.

Why the black roses? Looks like a gothic funeral. She could have paired the black dress, veil and make-up with pale pink roses or something to signify the happiness of the event. The overall look is morbid.

YAWN…isn’t her “rebellious” teen age angst a little “passé?” YAWN.
