{Charcoal & Snow}: A Classic Winter Wedding

{Charcoal & Snow}

Nothing is more classic than having a wedding color palette of black and white. Pairing black and white is traditional and elegant and definitely makes a beautiful statement. I love all the ways you can bring this simple palette to life! Some of the ideas I'm loving in this design include those gorgeous lanterns lining the entrance to the reception venue by Pottery Barn and the handcrafted Etsy finds including that classic clutch by Mermaidsdream, that pendant necklace by LondonsGate, & calligraphy by notetrunk. Oh, and who does not love the looks of those yummy cupcakes and that swanky presentation?

So how are you feeling about classic black and white palette? I think, if done right, there are so many fun and unexpected ways to convey this otherwise "plain" palette. Plus there is something to be said about letting your bridesmaids wear black dresses they can wear again! Any brides-to-be out there who are considering this palette? Always remember, black and white can look so great, if done right!
