Modern meets Rustic

It's a colour you can add some drama with, it has got a touch of sophistication, and not to mention it is so flattering. Just by chosen black your wedding will immediately look more expensive. I think you will agree the mood board below looks smart! Just by adding a touch of white will really lift it.

Add some drama 

 Using black in your colour palette is for couples who are bold, modern and want to make a statement with a difference. How much you use in certain areas will effect the mood you are trying to create. If you want to be bold and add drama, added black in the larger more noticeable areas will help you achieve the right mood. For example; covering the tables with black linen table cloths, or the bridesmaids dresses. If you want more of a subtle touch just add it in less obvious areas in smaller doses. Like the candles on the tables, or the napkins.
