Black wedding inspiration

Because a black wedding doesn’t necessarily mean a goth wedding! Black is one of the most elegant, timeless, chic, formal and sophisticated colours, so why not use it as part of your wedding colour palette? For all those black colour lovers, we gathered some black wedding inspiration for you.

A black wedding can be whimsical, ethereal, modern, elegant, boho, minimalist or whatever you want it to be! It all comes down to the styling and the elements that you choose to incorporate in your theme.
