Black can be a very elegant colour; one that adds an heir off sophistication and glamour to any event.
But often people shy away from using black in their wedding day because they are afraid that it might make the event seem gloomy, or the decor foreboding, or not match with the other decor elements.
But we’re here to tell you that black can absolutely be incorporated into your wedding! And there are some very easy ways to do it that are subtle yet sophisticated! So we’re sharing 8 ways (and our 8 favour places) to incorporate black in your wedding that will make your affair elegant and modern.
Accessories are a great place to add a pop of colour or an accent of black! If you love the classic look of black, but only want a subtle amount, consider shoes, earrings, hair pins or combs, and other small accessories!
These black strappy sandals from Blondie Boutique are a great way to add some sophistication to your wedding day!
Invitations are the easiest place to infuse some black sophistication! Consider using black envelopes, or integrating black into the envelope liners, insert cards, or wax seals. Better yet, use black ribbon or twine to wrap your suite.
Sweets & Treats
This beautiful black marbled cake from Bake My Day is the epitome of chic sophistication and modern luxury. Adding fresh florals on your cake will add that wow factor and some femininity too!
Another great idea from Cake College is adding some black to the wedding treats! Cupcake liners, mini macarons, black icing… so many different ways you could do it!
Being more creative with your standard signage elements can really make your wedding stand out. Black and white is such a classic yet bold combination, and the perfect one for your wedding signage. Check out Bexley Design Co for custom signage and printables!
Whether you go vintage or modern, you can’t go wrong with coloured glassware. We love those black goblets from Modern Luxe.
Who says the only bridal manicure is a french one? We love contemporary nail art! This modern manicure from Drift Luxury Nail Bar is both bridal and unique! Plus why not go black for your toes?!
Simple elements on your table can add a lot of impact. Try matte black cutlery, a black charger, or black linens. If you want something more soft and feminine, go with a sheer fabric like chiffon!
