Wedding Style: Black and White
The absence of color is anything but lacking, especially when Parisian influences and romantic flourishes take this simple combination to a new level of opulence.
Adding polished silver and sparkling crystal upgrades this could-be-bland color scheme to a romantic wedding style. A variety of centerpieces with unique flowers like black kangaroo paw adds interest.
To see this style reach its greatest potential, choose the ultimate—a black and white marble dance floor like the Silver Corridor at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York City.
A letterpress invitation with black blossoms, swags of black flowers, and “couture” quilting sets the tone for a sophisticated and richly dressed wedding. The bouquet adds the dramatic black kangaroo paw and cattail to an otherwise precious collection of white sweet peas and Tibet roses.
By simply affixing a pearl brooch to a white fabric treatment, black chiavari chairs are chicly dressed.
The cake displays the black blossom, quilting, and swag motifs originating in the invite and carried through to place cards.
An antique-looking wrought iron mirror is filled with dozens of white carnations, creating a unique focal point above a guest book, escort card, or cake table.
We love the idea of bridesmaids carrying clusters of white carnations inside black and white fabric “handbags” instead of bouquets.
This boutonniere of white sweet peas and chocolate cosmos—both open and closed buds—wrapped in white satin, and pinned with what appears as tuxedo shirt studs, will be dashing on a groomsman.
And the groom will appreciate this witty, urbane accent of lisianthus and star-of-Bethlehem wrapped in black-and-white polka dot fabric.
