A black and white wedding will never fail to be perfect. Create the perfect balance between dramatic elegance and timeless grace.

Why we love it: Balance. Class. Elegance. 'Nough said.

Flowers to consider:
Anything white
Tulips
Lilies
Carnations
Roses
Peonies

Patterns to use in black and white weddings:
Damask
Thick stripes
Chevron
Bold black lace
Big polka dots

Colours to use with a black and white wedding theme:
The ideal black and white wedding is to limit it to only that. As soon as you add an accent colour, the feel of the wedding will change. This is also foolproof and we will certainly feature examples of these in the near future.
Add dashes of silver with a little help of diamanté
Matt gold with hints of sparkle

When one hears "black wedding", Wednesday Adams from the sinister Adams Family immediately pops into our minds. This is so not what we are aiming for! We are picturing the classic beauty of Audrey Hepburn combined with the gracious Grace Kelly. Be brave. Be bold. The famous Donna Karan says: "Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable." See? It is all about balance.
