Wedding colour schemes come and go with the seasons and the years, but black and white weddings are always in style. This sophisticated colour scheme is appropriate for casual to black or white tie weddings and for any venue. All wedding elements are available and stylish in black and white. Here are some black and white wedding ideas for you to consider.
Black and White Invitations: Black and white wedding invitations are elegant, timeless and appropriate for all weddings. They are available in a wide array of paper stock, design and graphics.
Black and White Décor: Black and white décor is extremely stylish and can be very dramatic. The more black you add to the décor, the more dramatic the look. For more casual or daytime weddings, go predominantly white with black accents. Incorporate more black elements in evening weddings, particularly those that are more formal for a more dramatic effect.
Black and White Flowers: Although there are not many black fresh flower options, black silk or beaded flowers can be used alone or mixed with white fresh flowers in bouquets or centrepieces for an elegant and dramatic effect. Here are a few ideas:
- Silk flowers embellished with jewels
- Black and white anemones
- White flowers accented with black feathers or ribbons
- Black and white freesia
- Black ivy berries with ranunculus
- White fresh flowers mixed with black silk flowers
- Black beaded flowers mixed with white fresh or silk flowers
Black and White Cakes: Any cake can be decorated in white black and white. The design of the cake should be in keeping with the theme and level of formality of the wedding. Choose your favourite flavours and let your imagination flow.
Black and White Favours: Many decorative items ideal for wedding favours are available in black and white. Here are just a few ideas:
- Picture frames
- Decorative boxes
- Tea caddies
- Tealight holders
