Black for a wedding.. honest opinion

Recommended Posts

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!!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.

    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
