Don't get us wrong—there's nothing more traditionally wedding-y than a white wedding cake. In fact, we've never met one we didn't like!

But something about the sub-zero temperatures and the fact that Valentine's Day is right around the corner has us dreaming of a rich, dark wedding cake. Chocolate, black, navy blue, and other deep-hued fondants and buttercreams are the perfect choice for a modern winter wedding that includes a darker, sophisticated color palette.

Check out these 22 gorgeous dark-colored wedding might just be inspired to go over to the dark side—in the best possible way!
