Black and White Wedding Colors – Seven Glorious Combinations

You can never go wrong when choosing Black and White as your wedding color theme. But if you aren’t comfortable with only black and white, you can create a really lovely wedding palette by adding a pop of color.

Besides looking great, there are some other things I like about having Black and White as the base colors. For one thing, you will have access to more options when looking for wedding and reception décor. And you won’t have to match an exact color … black is black! For example, the gorgeous “candelabra” in the purple collage below was purchased at an “after Halloween” sale.

And if you you want to give your bridesmaids the option of buying their dresses at a “regular” store, rather than a bridal salon, they will have lots of choices if they wear black. Notice in the collages below how colorful flowers really pop against the background of black bridesmaids’ dresses.

I created the collages below to showcase seven colors that pair really well with black and white.
