Most brides to be envision their weddings to be full of color, . But have you ever thought about have a simple yet elegant black and white wedding theme? Here are some ideas for throwing an elegant wedding using these two basic colors.
Décor for a Black and White Wedding
When I say black and white wedding, I mean a black and white wedding. You have to be consistent. To stay true to the theme, there must not be any other color visible in your venue. You will probably be calling your venue on a regular basis to make this elegant wedding theme work.
The floors will need to be either covered with black and white carpet, or laid with a temporary hardwood. The hardwood floor can be alternating black and white squares or rectangles, or only a few planks of either black or white scattered throughout the venue. Choose which of these neutral colors will be your base-this decision will determine the feel of your event. A mostly white floor (and décor) will create a feeling of purity, while a mostly black floor will make the event more dark, mysterious, and modern. Either way, your black and white wedding is sure to be complimented for its unique and elegant design.
The tables can be draped with an expensive black and white cloth with a design of your choice. Some ideas for the design are large checkers, polka dots, freestyle, or a floral design. Or you can bring in custom tables with black and white designs painted professionally on the top.
Again, you will want to choose your base color before deciding on the wedding favors you will have placed on guest tables. Nothing says elegant wedding like a glossy black box tied delicately with a white silk ribbon and a black and white themed prize inside.
Here is one quick idea for a food item at your black and white wedding. Black and white cakes!
Guests Absolutely Must Wear Black and White
Your guests will be the most difficult part of pulling off your black and white wedding. You must make it clear to them that they are only to wear black and/or white to your wedding-no exceptions.
But you know some people are stubborn, or seem to always miss the message, so it may be a good idea to send a follow-up reminder after the initial invitations are sent to tell them once again that black and white attire is absolutely required for admittance to the wedding.
If Grandma Wallace shows up in a pink shawl, pick the person she loves the most to ask her to remove it. If your hard-headed brother shows up in a bright red suit, you will have to make the decision on whether you are actually going to turn guests away at the door, and make them go home to change.
If you are really serious about an uninterrupted black and white wedding theme, another way to avoid problems with your guests' attire is to hire an outfitter to come to the wedding with a selection of clothing in varied sizes to be rented for the day. It may be a little costly, but it's worth it to see your elegant wedding vision come to fruition.
The black and white cakes won't be the only treats for guests at your black and white wedding if you plan this right. Your guests will appreciate the time you took to give them a very different and elegant wedding experience.
