A black and white wedding is so simple, it almost feels like cheating to choose this color combo for our color crush…but we’re doing it anyway! A color combination as timeless and elegant as black and white deserves to be admired after all.
Choosing black and white for your wedding is an incredibly elegant choice. Whether you’re hosting a black tie affair or simply want a timeless look, black and white is at its best when paired with traditional elements. White rose bouquets, elaborate table settings with menus and a tiered cake with fondant flowers are all wonderful ways to incorporate a traditional look.
A Formal Affair
Black and white wedding colors often indicate a more formal affair, which means choosing black and white wedding invitations is key in introducing your wedding style. Your invitation will inform guests of all the important details, including how formally they should dress. You may choose to state “formal attire” or “black tie” on the reception card but you should still choose an invitation that reflects your formal style, such as this Pure Elegance wedding invitation with satin ribbon and sheer overlay.
Even though black and white wedding colors are incredibly classic and go beautifully with a traditional wedding, we still love when the couple uses black in surprising and stylish ways. For example, the black sash on this bride’s gown is incredibly eye-catching. The black berries in the bouquet, the black flowers in the table centerpiece and the black ribbon on the all-white cake are all great ways to use the color black as an unexpected touch of beauty.
