Back to Basics: Black and White Palette


Can’t decide on coordinating colors for your wedding-day palette? Go back to basics with black and white — and you’ll be out of the gray area. There’s nothing more elegant than a black and white affair, hands down. It’s clean, sophisticated and timeless. Whether you opt for polka dots, crisp stripes, toile or a geometric pattern for your wedding decor, black and white looks sharp and interesting, no matter what.

We love when couples go for the bold contrast of black and white when seemingly everyone is gravitating toward muted tones for the big day. The back-to-basic palette also creates the perfect moment to add a pop (or pops) of color(s). We love touches of fuschia, gold, yellow or orange combined with black and white.

From fashion to cake decor, places settings and more, here are some black and white looks we love.
