Ideas for a black and white wedding include black and white table decor, black and white floral arrangements, and black and white wedding attire for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. This color scheme can also include touches of gold or red, according to Weddingomania.com.
Black and white table decor can include black and white striped table linens, white tableware with black accents, or white table linens accented with black chairs. Add floral centerpieces with black vases and all-white roses, peonies, tulips or calla lilies. Suspend a black chandelier over a table dressed in white linens, and add black candlesticks with white pillar candles along the length of the head table.
For the bridal bouquet, wrap a bundle of white flowers with black ribbon. Accent men's boutineers or bridesmaids' bouquets with black ribbon and black feathers. The bride can wear a bright white dress with a black sash tied around the waist. She can also wear touches of black lace under her gown in the form of a petticoat or garter, as well as all-black or black and white shoes. The groom can wear a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt. For a summer wedding, he can instead wear a white tuxedo with black suspenders and a black tie. Dress the bridesmaids in black and white gowns, and ask guests to wear black and white clothing.
