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?

The black just doesn’t do anything for me. It seems a bit dark/morbid and just gives me bad vibes. Although, I will give her that the veil is pretty and that it was Avril’s special day. So, it was her prerogative to wear what she wanted and it doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks. If it made her happy, then more power to her and I wish them all of the very best.

I got married in a black dress about ten years ago. I think if it’s the right dress, it can be stunning. Sure, there were people who criticized me for it, but at the end of the day, my husband and I were happy and that’s what mattered. I don’t regret it at all.

White isn’t a color for everyone. I am very fair so white certainly wasn’t for me. Good for Avril for choosing something unique that made her happy.

I like it and at least she’s honest!
