I love black and white with some accent colors – love it for home interiors, love it for clothing, and I love it for a wedding. As a wedding color scheme it strikes a balance of classic beauty and bold sophistication, and the addition of green foliage softens it (there’s also an itty bit of purple in the form of a Saipua arrangement with some fritillaria). I’ve also chosen romantic details like calligraphy, ribbons, and a vintage cake topper and ring. Also, with a color scheme like this, bridesmaids can wear their favorite little black dress…

Mood: romantic early spring

    This is beautiful! I’m a “lots of color” girl myself, but even I find these really appealing. I am saving a Swanson bottle for my wedding too, but it’s the”Just Married” one.
