Is there anything more sophisticated than a classic black and white wedding? It’s a color scheme that never goes out of style and is both elegant and contemporary. And just because it’s usually associated with more formal affairs, don’t think you can’t have fun and be playful with it. To keep it modern and fresh, simply add in a little texture, throw in some pops of color or play with pattern–polka dots, anyone?
Black and white wedding gowns are so hot right now, even Vera Wang is getting in on the action with her super chic 2014 Spring collection.
If you’re particularly daring bride and black accents just won’t cut it for you, you could always opt for an all black ensemble. The addition of sequins and metallic accessories will keep it looking chic, glamorous, and celebration ready.
The classic black tuxedo is the obvious choice when it comes to groom attire, but why not flip that look on its head instead with a white tuxedo jacket with black trim? Or, you could have a little fun with the accessories and by choosing a polka dot bow tie or pocket square.
Calligraphy done in white ink really pops against black stationery and adds a romantic feel to your invitation suite while graphic illustrations and bold black type give a contemporary edge.
Black and white decor details can be dramatic or understated depending on the feel you’re going for, but like with any color scheme, keeping things simple will provide the most impact.
To soften the look of the black and white color scheme and add a little glitz, throw some gold accents into the mix.
To end off the evening, a tiered black and white cake would be stunning, for sure, but for a real show stopper wow your guests with an all black cake.
