Bold, contrast, and always classic: a black and white wedding is the perfect way to make a statement on your big day. This trend is all about sophistication and style, from the invitations to the dress code and the entire theme!

You’ll turn heads whether you go for an all-white affair or add some black accents. We’ll give you a few more tips on how you can celebrate an elegant wedding by making the most of what these neutral colors offer!



  • The Gown

The key to nailing the black and white trend is to keep things simple. First, opt for a sleek and chic wedding dress in a crisp white hue, and pair it with minimalist black accessories. Then, go for little black dresses that perfectly complement your gown for your bridesmaids.


  • The Decor

As for the décor, think classic and elegant. A monochrome color scheme is always a winner. You can add subtle glamour touches with sparkling chandeliers or glittering table decorations.

Also, consider using black chairs with white seat covers or vice versa. You can also alternate the colors down the aisle.


  • The Reception

For the reception, use black tablecloths with white napkins or go for all-white linens and accents with black centerpieces. To make this pop even more, add in some touches of gold. For example, use gold chargers under plates or incorporate gold candlesticks into your tablescape.

But for a more subtle take on the trend, try using black vases with white flowers or white vases with black flowers.

And no black and white wedding would be complete without a stunning cake to match! So, choose a chic and elegant design with clean lines and graceful detailing!
