3 Chic Ways to Add Black Into Your Wedding

written by Thalia Basulto October 26, 2017

Halloween is right around the corner so I figured we could take a quick break from our seasonal colors and step out of our comfort zone! Why not use the color black in your wedding? Black is a timeless color that is commonly seen in fashion and home decor so it’s no surprises that we’re seeing this color in weddings too. A wedding with an all-black theme or with black accents is not unheard of but they’re definitely rare. When done correctly, all-black events can look chic, edgy and modern. I understand it can be a little intimidating to have such a dark color in your wedding palette, which is why I’ve rounded up three ways you can incorporate black into your wedding day without compromising the look!

Fresh Flowers

Nothing screams mysterious and chicness than a bouquet filled with deep purples and naturally black flowers like our Anemones. Although Anemones aren’t entirely black they have a dark center with bone white petals. When paired with other flowers like our Burgundy Black Dahlias, it can create a nice contrast.  Mixing in other dark colors into your bouquet will surely be a statement piece when paired with your white wedding gown. Our shop by color feature makes it easy to find our black flower selection!


Wedding Cake

We commonly see traditional white cakes and “naked” cakes, but what about an all-black cake? This style of cake is modern, edgy and sleek! It looks great with metallic accents and stunning with fresh flowers. Check out the cake below with a gold marble-inspired design and fresh greenery scattered around. Simply stunning!


Sophisticated Invitations

Deciding on invitations can be tough! Black invitations can be a great choice if you’re are looking for a style to capture your evening event. For example, take a look at this gorgeous invite below. The burnt edges match with the black and gold stationary perfectly. This style will surely fit right in with any special event theme!
