20 Reasons to Have a Black & White Wedding


When it comes to picking out wedding colors, we tend to shy away from the color black.  Why?  Every woman has her favorite LBD (little black dress) in her closet but when it comes to weddings our favorite dress color is instantly thrown out the window.  Here are 20 reasons why your wedding colors should include the chicest of all colors, black.

1. Your invitations will be bold and classic, guests won’t want to miss out with an invitation like this.

2. Your soon-to-be hubby will have an excuse to rock these black and white polka-dot socks!

3. Like we need a reason to add blackberries to our champagne? But if we did- this would be it!

4. You’ll have an excuse to have these adorable chalkboard inspired escort cards.

5. And these elegant laser cut table numbers.
