A black and white wedding theme is a sophisticated and elegant theme for a wedding. This colour scheme always looks striking and is relatively simple to achieve. When putting together your wedding theme consider wedding invitations, flowers, reception and table decorations, place cards, wedding favors and bomboniere as well as the bridal party outfits. Carry your chosen colour theme through all aspects of your wedding to coordinate your day.
Wedding Reception and Table Decorations
There are so many options when it comes to decorating your wedding reception venue and tables. Think decorative candle holders, handing paper lanterns, table runners, place cards and table scatters. All of these are easy to obtain in a variety of colours including black and white. Tea light candles in paper bags of your chosen colour scheme will always create a romantic candelit atmosphere, whether outdoors or indoors. There are so many varieties of white flowers and you can either present in black boxes or glass vases tied with black ribbons. Another option is to choose white flowers and offset with black wedding favours or place cards.
A sophisticated black and white wedding invitation is easy to achieve. From a simple yet striking invitation created with black text printed on white paper or card to the many decorative patterned invitations available from wedding suppliers. Think different textured papers to create interest in your monochromatic colour scheme.
Wedding Favors and Bomboniere
Wedding favors can act as gifts as your guests, table decorations and even place cards. Decorative candle holders, black paper fans and black or white picture frames with guests names inside are all simple yet effective favor options. Other options are cupcakes in patterned cupcake wrappers (stripes and spots look great) or shortbread biscuits iced in your colour theme and wrapped in cellophane and tied with matching ribbons.
Bridal Party Outfits
A black and white wedding theme is an easy to look to create with your bridal party outfits. Bridesmaids will have a huge range of black bridesmaids dresses to choose from including black evening dresses to party or cocktail dresses. Team with bouquets of white roses and your monochromatic look is complete. You could also accessorise your black dresses with white hand fans, shawls or parasols. Another option is to take a black dress and add a white ribbon or sash around the waist to create the black and white look. Groomsmen are simple with black suits and white shirts.
