Traditionally, black and white are considered the perfect color scheme for a formal evening wedding. You know the drill: the bride wears white, the groom wears a traditional black tux, and the guests are usually given warning that the affair will be a formal “black tie” event. However, these colors also have the ability to create a casual and whimsical environment for a wedding that would take place during the day.
Here are a few of my favorite black and white linens:
Maybe you’re looking to create a formal event with dining and dancing? A black and white design will be elegant, romantic and beautiful, but if that is not your style, turn up the volume with a pop of color. Red is the perfect accent color to complement a black and white design, but that color combination has been done, and redone and done again!
So, I suggested adding a splash of hot pink, maybe even kelly green or a gorgeous turquoise to give your reception some pizazz and make a bold statement that may be unexpected. In the end, the great thing about black and white is that they are truly timeless, so no matter when you’re getting married or what the current fashion trends are, you will always be able to find decor elements to make your wedding unique to your personality, on trend for the season, and items will be available in large quantities so that you can easily design and decorate for your wedding.
