Many color schemes come and go but the sophistication of black and white is timeless. Add a splash of vibrant red, and you have created an air of regal royalty.
Set the tone for your special event with your invitations. Use white linen paper with a black boarder and the same color lettering.
The bridal gown can be complemented with a bouquet of red roses and baby's breath. The bridesmaids can wear black dresses and shoes with a white sash. Their bouquets can be a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet.
If the bridal party includes a flower girl, imagine how beautiful she would look in a white dress with black ribbons strewing red rose petals as she walks down the aisle.
The groom and groomsmen will look debonair in black tuxedos, white shirts, black ties and a cummerbund. Or you could switch it up a bit and use a red cummerbund. Having a ring bearer wear a black or white suit carrying a white pillow with red or black ribbons or streamers will have all your guests smiling.
Some more black and white wedding ideas.
Your cake can be decorated with a touch of black scroll icing, or a black band between each tier, placed upon a black doily. Purchase an engraved cake server with a faux pearl handle and tie a black ribbon to the handle.
Black tablecloths with white napkins make a striking contrast. Your centerpieces can be an arrangement of white roses, carnations, lilies, tulips or orchards, placed in a clear glass vase with black accent stones. Adding a white or red table runner will give a layered and textured look to your table.
There is quite an array of favors to match this color theme. You can purchase black and white silk sachets and fill them with cookies, candy or even a lottery ticket. Another fabulous idea is to place white almonds in black boxes decorated with white ribbon or tulle.
For an extra bit of pizzazz, ask your caterer if they can serve black and white petit fours.
Another idea would be to have your names printed in black on a white banner.
