Real Wedding Color Trends: Black and White {take 1}


If there is one thing that I know for certain about weddings, it is that the ever popular black and white color theme remains a strong trend for 2010.  Why? you ask…  for so many reasons ranging from classic beauty to sustained elegance.  It is a base color scheme that lends itself to so many accent colors: yellow, red, light pink, turquoise, apple green and my personal favorite FUCHSIA!

    I totally agree with black and white as a timeless wedding element. The best part is just about any other color can be added to it to create various design detailing.

    Loving those table linens. Are they silk?

    The linens were actually white tafetta with a black velvet damask decor and were rented from one of our favorite suppliers out of Miami– Over the Top.

    I’m thrilled to hear this is a trend for 2010, because my wedding is in June and I’m doing black, white and grass green! We’re also incorporating damask into the event, but it will mostly be in the placecards, hotel bags, tablecloth on the cake table, and other smaller items like these. Do most local vendors (I’m in Washington, DC) carry a decent supply of damask-printed items? It would be great to not have to try to hunt down a damask tablecloth myself. Thanks for any advice you can provide!

    Kate- thanks for your comments! I love grass green with the damask- truly a lovely combination. Most urban caterers have access to a full arsenal of linen suppliers, though most do not stock specialty linens in their equipment roster. Should their suppliers not have access to the damask desired I can recommend two internet based linen companies that are easy to work with. The linens are shipped directly to you and then picked up the following Monday after the event by UPS at the address you specify…so it is a fairly easy process, should you need to acquire the desired linens on your own.
