Inspiration: Black and White

Posted by

When it comes to wedding palettes, it doesn't get any more elegant than classic black and white: a timeless tuxedo, a little black dress for bridesmaids, evocative black and white photos. It's simple and chic, as long as you do it in moderation. Black can be a hard color for food, so leave your cake a beautiful white masterpiece with a simple black ribbon edging the cake stand, like the one below.  I'm also seeing some great wedding gowns with black touches, like the one from Vera Wang below. A small touch of black goes a very long way.

Is anyone going with a black and white color palette? Whatever you choose, I'd love to hear about it!
