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 looks like a Halloween costume with those black roses, where’s the jack o’lantern.

I love black but this is too much black. Maybe he should have off set it with a white tie and her flowers should have been white or different colors. Then the black might have worked and you could see the dress better.

Black…definitely not a color that I would wear to my wedding. But that is just me. I like that she did exactly what she wanted to and didn’t feel the need to wear the ‘traditional’ white wedding dress!

Morticia Adams gone blonde. Looks creepy, not pretty.

She 28 and still acting like a 16 year old…. I can’t stand her little girl rebellion.

Oh well! Black/ white/ pink/red. Married to each other IS ALL WHAT COUNTS!

Clearly Avril was striving to look like a Creepy Bride instead of a Pretty Bride. She succeeded.

looks ridiculous! good for a funeral, which is probably appropriate for this silly wedding. His tux looks like my high school prom date’s…. which was in 1987….. just sayin…. made me giggle though

I love the black dress, but it’s a bit too prom-like for me. Oh well, each to his or her own.
