{A City Chic Wedding}: Yellow & Black

{Yellow & Black}

Nothing thrills me more than helping a bride who is in distress about her wedding color palette. This bride-to-be knew one thing & that's that she wanted to use a bright yellow as her primary color. Stressed as to what to pair it with... I explained that perhaps she should pair it with the obvious color. Classic black. I mean how could you go wrong? Yellow and black go hand in hand. Wouldn't you agree? {continued...}

Details We Love
Bridal Party Attire & Creative Program Design

And there are just so many ways to infuse these colors into your big day! And I just love how this color palette has a certain modernity to it. My favorite items in this board have to be that creative wedding program design, the modern table setting, and the gorgeous sweetheart necklines on those bridesmaids dresses! Looking for a bold palette that is perfect for a contemporary style wedding? Perhaps you should consider this palette! I happen to think it would be a great palette to use for weddings held in city venues, industrial lofts or even hotel venues.

Love it!! Could you possibly do something for me? I want Tiffany blue as my primary color and I don't know what to pair it up with. We are getting married at Pier Wisconsin, it's part of Bartolotta catering. The room is in the shape of a circle and has a 365 degree view of Lake michigan and then the city.

I love this colour combination. I need some help with my upcoming wedding. I am thinking of using plum in a garden setting.what are some good colours to use?

This is so classy and elegant. I can see this color palette as a very NYC wedding, esp with all those yellow cabs! :)

I love these colors... it's almost near the palette I'm looking for. I have black, white and yellow in mind, but the yellow may not be as bright as this. Do you think this would work as penguin colors?

Love the theme though... just about what i have in mind for a mafia wedding :)
