I think a black and white wedding theme is utter perfection. It’s timeless, classy and relatively straightforward to put together.
This wintry wedding discovered on Style Me Pretty is inspirational. What could be more sophisticated if you’re having an evening reception than dressing your bridesmaids in a chic dark grey, with black shrugs? Black and grey might not be the first colour that springs to mind when you’re considering your maids but you have to admit, it really works here.
The dark shades contrast beautifully with the bride’s traditional white wedding dress and the whole look is tied together with the cream bouquets. Of course, a black and white wedding theme also lends itself beautifully to your wedding stationery and invitations. Just write in black ink on a quality stock card and you’ve a classic invitation. Use black ribbons as accents on white, or white ribbons on black.
Don’t you just love these winter wedding flowers? Creamy white roses and orchids with winter berries adding a seasonal accent. And the groom’s buttonhole is simple perfection against the black of his stylish tuxedo.
If you’re planning a winter wedding you’ll need something to keep you and your maids warm. A luxurious fur shrug like this one does the job beautifully, but you might like to consider coloured pashminas for your maids – and they’ll love using them afterwards so they make a great gift too.
