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?

Love all black. It’s the kind of wedding dress I would wear.

She looks really dumb.

The white wedding gown was not common until Queen Victoria wore white to her wedding in the 19th century… Odd fact. Most women wore a pretty daytime dress and the color didn’t matter. I like the dress, I think its different and she is beats to a different drummer anyway

I think the dress is pretty and I like the lace edging on the veil. Not a fan of the black roses though – I would have loved to have seen dark blood red ones for a shocking contrast. But hey, not my wedding :-)

I agree with whoever said it looks like a bad Prom pic. She looks thrown together and seems to have forgotten her brush. I like black at weddings but this looks dumb. Its like she is trying too hard to be cool.

Huh. Well, I guess it’s better than stark white and rolling the old odometer back LOL

As one commenter, Zeze, said, she’s trying too hard to be edgy, and I agree. She’s just trying too hard & looks ridiculous and costumed. It’s almost as if they are outfitted for a photo shoot or a music video, not a real wedding with real people. It’s kind of sad, especially how they seem desperate to be “edgy”, “hard-core”, and most importantly, “relevant”. Someone else said they look like creepy, like it’s Halloween. I agree. Aren’t they too old for this?

Just too, too goth for my taste, but if she’s happy, go for it. I wish them good health and a long, happy life together.

i’m over the black. i get it … that’s her thing. i think her hair could have been much better. looks dry and frizzed out & just too long to be styled so plainly for her wedding day!
