Black wedding inspiration board

Holy smokes who turned out the lights!? This black wedding is pretty glamorous, don’t you think? Black and white weddings are timeless, classic, and always ‘in,’ but I thought, what if we dropped a lot of the white and added more black? And presto: a stunningly bold, modern, and super sophisticated wedding palette.

Adore this bold look? You’ll also love: haute couture

  1. I LOVE the jewelry down her back! So elegant! I’ve always wanted to be that backless-dress-wearing, tall leggy girl at some important political fundraiser or something. It’s so far removed from who I am, but I think it would be fun to be someone else for awhile! 🙂

  2. How did I miss this one? Stealing these elements for my paranormal romance. 😀

  3. this is so stunning and glamorous!
