    So... I love the color turquoise for a beach wedding, and thats what I want my main color to be, but I also want to add hints of black, white and silver as well. When I had mentioned that to a friend, she was like "NO, you can not have black at a wedding, thats more for a funeral" So what do you think?

    I added inspiration pics below

      Black is perfectly fine. My cousin got married 2 years ago with a black/pink/silver color scheme. They even asked all of the close family members to wear black so we could be easily identified. Needless to say, it looked great. Do what you like and don't let anyone bully you into changing your mind!

          My invites are black and turquoise and my best friends wedding party was in all black. Its not 1852 anymore, you can get married in any colour or have any colour you want.

            I'm having fuschia and black, and back in 2005 my sister had red, black, white and silver, she even had black roses in her bouquet, and it was gorgeous :)

            And my mom thought that black was just for funerals too and was appalled at my sister for choosing it, then she saw the ideas she had and how it all turned out and now thinks black is beautiful at weddings lol

              black is definitely fine, ESPECIALLY as an accent color! At funerals you're not going to see hints of black with turquoise, white and silver! I've seen many many wedding color schemes that include black and they always look classy and nice.

              Show your inspiration photos to your friend and ask her what they make her think of...I seriously doubt she'll say funeral.

                I think the black will be gorgeous!!

                I was at two weddings last summer and all the bridesmaids were in black tea length dresses and it looked so beautiful. It will look so nice as an accent color against the turquoise and the silver!

                Go for it!!

                  The black looks beautiful! I think it's such a classy addition, especially with the silver.
