When it comes to your wedding theme, you can’t go wrong with a classic black and white color palette. But these days, that design might feel like it’s a dime a dozen, rather than one in a million! If you’ve decided on chic black and white tones for your big day, but you’re looking for ways to make your wedding feel extra special, we’ve got you covered! Natalie Good of A Good Affair is sharing her top 5 tips to keep your black and white wedding feeling spectacular!
1. Avoid anything looking “polka dot” by keeping black and white tones separate.
White florals and black candles on a tablescape create pops that are stunning versus black and white in the flowers.
2. Create a black and white dance floor for a WOW moment!
This is a great way to make an impact in your design and incorporate a fun nod to your theme in an unexpected way.
3. Elevate your escort cards!
We love escort cards on a white or mirrored wall with black cards and white calligraphy – such a classic and timeless design.
4. Go black for your bridal party.
Black bridesmaids gowns are chic and formal and something they could wear again, plus your bridal look will pop! And consider your groom in a black and white tux jacket…stunning!
5. Be bold with black invitation envelopes.
They’ll stand out in the mail and look modern with white calligraphy. This is the perfect way to set the tone for a black-tie wedding day!
