Black is classic, elegant, and great for evening weddings. Or maybe a rock-themed wedding. Here in the Philippines, black isn't exactly a famous choice as a wedding color motif. Tradition states that it is the color of mourning.
But daring, adventurous couples try to break that mold and choose this color as their motif. Combined with light colors like champagne or brighter colors like red or yellow, it creates a sophisticated mood for your ceremony and reception.
Actually, I looked for black wedding motif inspirations because my friend wanted black as her wedding colors. We have yet to see the reaction of her future in-laws about this...
For the meantime, here's today's inspiration board. I chose the classic white as the accent:
