{By Request}: Vintage Glam, Please! Black & White

{Black & White}

Recently I received an email from a bride by the name of Hannah who said she was having such a difficult time determining the color palette for her upcoming wedding this year. Can you relate? She said she was feeling as if she might just go with black and white as a last resort. She said she liked the idea of black and white, but worried that it would look too boring. She also said she liked the idea of incorporating a vintage feel. So here is my attempt to show you, Hannah, and all of you other brides out there reading along that although black and white is classic, and elegant and timeless, it's far from boring! You can actually make this palette really pop if you choose unique ways to use these colors. Don't forget texture, pattern & repetition when it comes to your wedding day look {continued...}

Vintage Glam Hair Piece & Camera

Seems to me that these colors convey themselves best in bold patterns & creative fonts. And dare I say that these colors have a way of looking very, 'vintage glam?' Just my two cents! I'm personally really loving that bridal hair piece & the icing on that wedding cake! Plus, who doesn't love a vintage camera? Photo booth anyone? Hoping this shows you all how 'not boring' this palette can be!
