The beautiful thing about black and white weddings is that they can be classic, elegant, and utterly chic—or totally untraditional, modern, and creative. One thing all black and white weddings do have in common? Unforgettable style.
You can’t go wrong with this classy color scheme. Black is flattering on all body types and adds an air of special elegance to your celebration. Check out these five easy ways to style an absolutely jaw-dropping black and white wedding.
Black & White Anemones
Anemones bring effortless drama to your whole look. Arresting and elegant, these lovely flowers are a striking choice for bouquets or centerpieces. Style a traditional bridal bouquet by adding white roses or go for a sprawling, wild look by mixing in greenery.
Black Tie Attire
Obviously a black and white wedding should be a black tie affair. Your groom and his friends will look sharp in tuxedos (white or black). Add an elegant black sash to your gown to accentuate the theme. If you’re really thinking outside the box, throw in a pair of swanky black shoes or vintage lace gloves!
A white or ivory bridal gown isn’t your only option. Slimming, sensual black gowns make a bold impression—whether you dress up your bridesmaids, don a LBD for the reception, or gracefully glide down the aisle in a tulle ball gown. Shimmering sequins in gold or silver also complement a glamorous black and white color scheme.
Stunning bling is a must-have for any formal wedding. Fine tune your look with an elegant rhinestone jewelry set, vintage-inspired black drop earrings, or a warm gold accent like a bracelet or belt. If you’ve chosen a strapless gown, consider shoulder jewelry! Ideally, pick something you’d love to wear again for a special occasion.
There’s nothing more romantic and beautiful than a cathedral veil. When you stand before your wedding guests, that pretty bit of tulle becomes the focal point of your wardrobe. Choosing a gorgeous cathedral veil adds unforgettable elegance to your look. When you take it off for the reception, show off a sparkly headpiece. You are only a bride for a day!
