10 Black and White Wedding Ideas
Want a chic color palette? Look no further than black and white.
Patterned Invitation Suite
The modern black and white wedding uses pretty prints to showcase the palette, rather than stark minimalism. This peppy invitation suite features a striped envelope liner and a polka dot backing.
Black and white wedding ideas can also include floral details. This romantic garland features pen illustrations of roses with grosgrain ribbon accents.
Found at weddings of nearly every theme, chalkboard signs are an easy fit into a black and white color scheme. This example is painted (rather than using an actual chalkboard) for a cleaner, darker effect.
We love bridal parties in prints! These black and white dresses feature tiny silver stripes throughout, and the bride’s bouquet echoes the pattern with a matching ribbon. You can choose to have your maid of honor stand out in a pop of color (here in kelly green), or have her sport a solid LBD.
Lately, we’ve been having a serious love affair with anemones. This stunning flower is a natural choice for a black and white wedding. Enhance them with deep eggplant-colored flowers that will “read” as black in the bouquet.
A Touch of Gold
Gold details might just be the most prolific wedding trend of the last year. With this place setting, we see what a stately combo black and white is with just a hint of gold.
It’s popular for black and white weddings to be hosted in modern lofts or ballroom venues. But you can also make the palette work for industrial chic and rustic events. This cool tablescape features hints of gray to blend in with the weathered wood for a more subtle black and white scheme.
Who doesn’t like lighthearted, celebratory decor like balloons? You can find black balloons in both matte and shiny finishes in all sizes. This easy DIY project was created with a white marker for a unique wedding menu sign.
Black & White Cakes
Black and white wedding ideas can also be tasty. These wedding cakes, although very different in style, show just how versatile this scheme can be. Although, if you do opt to use black buttercream or fondant, be careful around it with your wedding dress to avoid stains.
Matching Sweet Table
To pair with your elegant wedding cake, serve dark chocolate desserts with white accents. Even though they aren’t expressly black, deep espresso chocolate can create a great faux black color.
