Set the tone for a glamorous affair with the right invitations. This Brilliant Damask – Black Faux Glitter – Invitation features a dazzling pattern of damask in sparkling black, lending a luxurious feel to otherwise vintage stationery. A simple black and white design amid elegant text is all you need to set the mood. If you want your guests to dress themselves in black-tie apparel (men: tuxedos, women: floor-length gowns) you should note that requirement in your invites.
Keep things simple, just like in our style board, and stick with a single neutral tone for the cake. One shade allows all of the intricate detailing on your sweet confection to stand out even more. If you’re having a larger wedding, you’ll want a cake with more tiers. But if you’re having 40 guests celebrate with you, you can use faux tiers and have only the bottom layer made up of real cake.
Being a black tie event, it’s only fitting that the groom rocks a black tuxedo on his big day – James Bond-style. His bride can complement his dark, formal attire with a beautiful veil and white dress, which is traditionally floor-length in a more formal, black-tie event. Ball gowns are popular for this type of soiree, but as you can see from our style board, lace certainly gives off a feel of chic elegance, romance and luxury.
Stick to simple dinnerware – white plates lined with black are perfect for your wedding theme. You can add a few splashes of color to the reception tables with floral arrangements filled with plenty of greenery to make your white plates pop.
Keep your guests comfortable at the reception while still staying on theme with some neutral-toned pillows. We love the Mrs. and Mr. scribbled in black across the burlap pillows on our style board.
