When you think of a formal wedding, what comes to mind? Chances are you picture a black tie affair and there’s reason for that! Black and white weddings are simply stunning. The contrast of color is clean and striking, perfect for impressing even the most refined of tastes.
Black and white may be synonymous with formal but that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive! You can make this classic wedding style as high-end or as affordable as you want.
We chose the Classic Typography Invitation with Backer because it exudes that formal look and feel but is also available without a backer if you’re looking to save money. Now let’s take a look at the other elements in this black and white wedding inspiration board!
The venue is key in creating the right atmosphere and achieving a high-end look. However, you don’t need chandeliers and crystal to get the look you want. You can use clear glass candleholders like shown, and clear glassware to mimic that same look. Candlelight is always a nice touch and can be achieved with minimal expense.
Everyone knows, black is flattering! The black bridesmaid dresses shown here are so pretty, and the different styles allow each bridesmaid to be unique. Not to mention, that bride looks amazing in her white gown surrounded by her gorgeous bridesmaids in black. Same goes for the gentlemen. The groom stands out in a white suit while his groomsmen look dapper in black.
Remember to add some surprising black and white elements like the wedding cake shown here. The black tiers with white floral decorations are oh-so-pretty and coordinate beautifully with a formal wedding look.
The Classic Typography Invitation is just one of many designs found in our Classic Collection, so be sure to check out all the available invitations to find the right style for your black and white wedding.
