{A Classic Duo}: Red & Black

{Red & Black}

The combination of red and black has long been a classic look for weddings. One that seems to a top pick for brides around the world. And although there is nothing very unique about the pairing, sometimes it's just nice to see a classic palette done in a really fun and hip way! For this bride my goal was take this palette make it pop by choosing patterns & textures that really made for a elegant and fun wedding! I love the damask detailing found on those invitations and I love how that same pattern is sort of mirrored by the lace that is on the bridesmaids dresses. It's details like this that really bring a look together! And who isn't loving those handcrafted clutches? What a wonderful gift to any bridesmaid!

So how are you feeling about red? If you know me, then you know I L-O-V-E red. But that's not to say that it's for everyone! Some people are just not red fans! But for those of you who are...rest assured you're not alone! There is something so fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering red + black? Do tell!
