Traditionally it’s been known that weddings should be surrounded by flows of whites and pastels, however, modern brides will go crazy over our all black themed weddings. Add your own personal touch of elegance by making a bold and dramatic statement.
The wedding outfits:
Your wedding dress can be black or you can have a white dress and add our own black extras such as black lingerie, shoes and jewellery. If you decide to go for a black dress, you can add some glimpses of silver and jewels, or simply go all black. Keep in mind if your bridesmaids are wearing a black, to ensure they go a different shade of black or have a different style to ensure the bride stands out.
Once you select this choice, shoes will be no challenge at all as most shoes in this century are based around darker colours and are extremely elegant.
It would be ideal to incorporate a lighter black to ensure the venue does not look like an underground cult but do not be afraid to stick to your colour scheme. There are more hues based on black than just one standard colour.
Below are a few ideas for your all black wedding:
Décor: Napkins, draping, bunting and table runners in black
Flowers: Most florists are able to arrange that certain flowers are supplied in black with a special dying process, however, you can go for a different colour flower and add your own black flower décor in your bouquet or table flowers
Cake: One of the easiest options based on colours would be the cakes as a wedding cake can be made in any colour, theme or shape. You would need to ensure you contact a suitable florist to ensure they make the cake in the exact black colour of choice and one that will not turn grey or discolour due to weather such as heat.
Wedding Favours: There are endless possibilities when it comes to wedding favours and almost all favours can be supplied in black e.g. Chocolates with black custom wrappers, mint treat with black, card tags/wine labels in black
Dress Code: On your invitation, you can advise guests to wear all black. This might be confused by some as black is usually worn to funerals, and some of the older generations may not understand the modern chic look.
Invitations: Instead of having a white invitation as pure, you can have a black background with white /silver writing.
