Black and White Wedding Inspiration with Hot Pink

So happy to welcome Laura {a monthly contributor} of Eye Candy Event Details to the blog today with her absolutely stunning inspiration for February. And, just like last month, Laura provides us with her beautiful details for each photo so you can easily implement the elements into your event. For the inspiration board this month Laura writes . . . One of my favorite color palettes for a wedding is black & white with ANY accent color! There is just something about it that makes it look so polished. So dramatic. So inviting! But then when you add hot pink with it . . . well let's just say I think it's the PERFECT color combination! One thing you must know, is my own wedding, about two years ago, was this exact color palette and it was so much fun planning the décor. Personally, I did this color palette paired with the damask print and it was stunning! That is probably THE reason that I love black and white so much. Simply for the fact that when you add a bold pattern to the color scheme, is just demands attention! It's perfect for the person looking to make a statement but yet keeping the whole event classy as well.

1. Why choose between having a traditional wedding cake or the ever-so-trendy cupcake tower? Why not combine & have both! This stunning tower is the ultimate solution for the couples who want it both ways.

2. When decorating the room at the venue, consider draping the ceiling with the colors from your wedding with yards of fabric. It creates a dramatic effect & makes the place seem magical . . .

3. A growing trend that is insanely popular with brides and bridesmaids alike, is to coordinate belts or sashes to the colors of the wedding. It's a fantastic way to add in an accent color & the flowers are gorgeous!!

4. Having a fabulous invitation is the key that sets the entire tone for your wedding day. Make sure to incorporate a design element that you will have present at the wedding, into your invitation. Guests will be counting down the days to your event, if you have an invite that grabs their attention from the minute they open it up!

5. Dramatic centerpieces using the black & white color palette make a bold statement but yet can still be simple! The choices are endless & you can create this look with a patterned charger, branches & some fresh flowers in the accent color for a look that is simple yet bold.

6. Wearing a fantastic pair of shoes, that match your wedding colors, is a necessity! Picking out a FAB pair of heels in hot pink is an experience you will not soon forget. Make sure you add that to the list of "must do" shots for your photographer as the photo could turn out to be a true piece of art!

7. Choosing florals for your centerpieces can be very simple & dramatic all in one. A simple bloom in a small vase, surround it with petals, add some candles & you have a wonderful way to add dimension to the centers of tables & make an impact all at the same time.

8. Looking for a unique idea with the seating chart & your guests? These button escort cards are a fun & unexpected twist to the traditional seating chart & are sure to have your guests talking.

9. Chalkboard paint on anything is so HUGE right now, so why not incorporate it into your wedding in a practical way. Try dipping the stems of your wine glasses, for your bridal party, in chalkboard paint & then writing their names or a sweet note for them.

10. If you are looking for a fun, bold accessory for your bridesmaids, this clutch is your answer. Not only does it have a bold pattern in black & white, the hot pink flower plays up the element of fun & sure to hold everything they need for the big day. 

11. Trying to find a statement flower to go with a black & white wedding? Why not consider anemones. They make one true statement all by themselves & can double duty as centerpieces on the tables after the ceremony.

12. Hanging initials of the bride & groom, in their wedding colors, is a wonderful way to dress up the back of their chairs.

13. Give your guests a little treat to remember your day. No matter what you choose, these little tuxedo & wedding dress favor boxes will be the perfect packaging.

Much love to Laura for joining us today with this beautiful inspiration for the holiday season. Please be sure visit the Eye Candy Event Details site and the Eye Candy Event Details Design Shop.
