I Have a Theme.... Marvellous Monochrome!

I tend to get carried away with girly, sweet themed weddings so thought I would turn to a more formal theme tonight and chose a black and white theme. I love how smart the theme can make a wedding look, and that there are millions of ideas out there for this theme.

Clockwise from Top Left:
-Swapping a tiara for a miniature top hat can be a chic look for the bride
-A posie of white roses looks perfect amongst the black and white decor
-a white sash on black bridesmaid dresses avoids the look being too severe
-Tables could be named after top Hollywood stars pictured in stunning black and white
-alternatively, a nice idea is to have photos of the bride and groom from the age of the table number in black and white
-keep the invites chic and simple, hinting at the theme of the wedding
-A nice idea for the guest book would be to include black and white photobooth photos taken at the wedding of the guests alongside their message
-Blown up canvas images around the venue in black and white with a simple colour pop like the one here add to the theme
-Adding flowers to the cake can prevent it looking plain in photos
-A twist on the traditional champagne flute, these glasses are stylish and contemporary
-Sparklers are a great way to liven up the reception, and bring out the child in guests
-Similarly, a magician can be an excellent way to get the party started and keep guests entertained during quieter moments
-Mini personalised boxes of After Eight mints make perfect favors
-Alternatively, damask candle holders are a great gift for guests to take home with them
-The most stylish of transportation, a black and white rolls royce!
-To keep things stylish, why not choose a pianist for the reception music?
-Black Forest Cupcakes give a modern twist to the gateau
-To really make the chairs stand out, add a black sash fixed with a white rose like these
