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?

I don’t like the all black. She wears black everyday.

I think, she should have had a white dress, that was grey and black on the bottom. Like Gwen Stefani had pink.

I hope they have a long, happy, marriage!

Jane on

She looks like Heidi Montag in the first picture.

Janette on

She went from being married to a boy to marrying a man. I hope this one works out for both of them. Don’t care for either of them as I think he’s a jerk for leaving his last fiancee for this broad. I give it 6 mos at best

If it had been her first wedding, white would seem more appropriate, but I think black suits her for her 2nd wedding and I love people who think outside of the traditional white wedding dress. Who are we kidding, she’s not pure and innocent and neither is her spouse. Love the black!!!!!!!!

I am wearing a black dress for my wedding with colored (I haven’t settled on what color lol) accents and my brides maids will be wearing the color with black accents. I think the soild black like she is wearing is to halloween like. It is a pretty dress though.

I love black wedding dresses, however, I do not like the design of this one. Perhaps it’s because you can’t really see much of it but I think it looks rather boring and cheap looking.

It’s just a little too much black for me. Very pretty, but the dress doesn’t stand out.

Reminds me of the Addams family. Wouldn’t be so bad if there was a little coloured accent somewhere in there.

Sunny on

I don’t like either one but the black dress being her second marriage dress seems odd. Like she’s creepy and depressed about the first marriage being over. I’m sure that’s not how it is but that’s what the two pictures makes me think.

Noooooooooooooooooo, never a black wedding gown! It is wrong on so many levels too numerous to count!
