Black weddings? 馃枻馃拻

Black weddings? 馃枻馃拻 1


The color black used to be associated with funerals, and considered inappropriate (even offensive if worn!) for weddings. But as weddings become less traditional and couples become more progressive, we are starting to see the color black incorporated more and more often. Are you incorporating black in your wedding? How/where are (or did) you using it? If you have photos (or inspo photos) of what you did/are doing, feel free to share!! 馃枻

    I think weddings with black as a focus are so cool and so visually stunning! It's not "my style" so it wasn't something I did for my wedding, but I love looking at pictures!

    I feel the same about my wedding! What all do you plan to do in black? Are you incorporating other colors also?

    Our colors are black Sage and ivory (for my mother). Our table clothes are black, my bridesmaids are wearing black, my daughter is wearing black, my fianc茅 and our son are wearing all black. Most of our decor is black. My planner wanted to get us gold easels and I said hard no lol. I鈥檇 have a lot more black if my mother wouldn鈥檛 have a heart attack lol we have a good compromise though.

    Nope. That鈥檚 where we compromised lol my dress is blush which will stand out more against everyone else wearing all black. Oh I also am using anemones as our main flower with the black center and ivory petals.

    Everybody seemed to love it but pretty much all of our family and friends know I love Halloween and am super into Halloween so they were more shocked that I didnt go full Halloween.

    The blush will look absolutely beautiful against the black! I requested anemones and my bouquet also! They are such a beautiful flower, and I love the juxtaposition of the dark and light colors next to each other

    Our colors are black and cream. All of my girls are wearing a black dress of their choice. We will have black tablecloths and black candles with cream flowers. Also, no greenery, just simple cream flowers throughout.Black weddings? 馃枻馃拻 6
