black & white wedding ideas
Posted: May 21, 2009 1:02 PM

Hey Everyone,

My colors for my wedding are going to be black & white (with touches of a dark pink-red). Does anyone have any good ideas for decorating a big space (indoors) for a reception? Also, does anyone know if there is such a thing as being able to "make" a separate floor for the dance floor (so it's easier to differentiate the dancing area)? Also, I was thinking about a black and white candy buffett for favors, do you think that would be a good idea for a July wedding? Any other ideas for favors?

I have lots of pictures of receptions in your color scheme, including one with a black and white dance floor. Contact me through my website and I'll send them right out to you.

My wedding was black white and red with punches of gold. Here are some pictures of how I decorated!

WOW, it sounds really dramatic and great! Very daring.

To love another person is to see the face of God.

Off topic, but are you on the Knot P&E board?

emjulybride--if you're having a big space, you're going to need big arrangements or centerpieces because they'll feel dwarfed in a large open area. to keep costs down, why not incorporate tall white and black painted branches in your arrangements, tucked in with white roses or carnations. Use tall black or clear vases with white flowers. I'll dig up some inspiration for you because I have nothing better to do--and I'm really starting to enjoy this wedding thing! LOL!

This image has some really tall, neat-looking centerpieces:

These tall sticks are what I was talking about for centerpieces:

I love the look of black and white weddings. There is something about the combination of those two colors that scream elegance and class. I'm sure everything will turn out looking fabulous!

How about bottle openers as favors? I love the practicality of them. It's always nice to give out a favor that your guests will actually take home and use afterwards.

I love this heart shaped bottle stopper. The packaging even works nicely with the black and white theme you want.


Chrome Heart Bottle Stopper in Personality Box ( 25 styles/colors) (Set of 4)
Hope this suggestion helps and best of luck with the planning!

Congratulations!
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
