Black and white is a classic color scheme for everything – outfits, home decor, event decor, and you just can’t go wrong with it. Using black and white for wedding decor is a timeless idea that works not only for modern weddings but also for minimalist, boho and many others – it’s very easy to pull this color scheme off. I’d like to share some black and white wedding tablescapes that may inspire you to get this palette for your wedding, too.
A centerpiece is perhaps the most important piece on a reception table, and it’s usually floral. To create a lovely wedding centerpiece for a black and white tablescape, you may use white anemones, tulips, carnations, orchids, roses or black callas, for example. White dried blooms and grasses will add a trendy feel to the table setting. If you want a very clear black and white look, skip greenery and use only white or only black blooms, and if you want to refresh the table look, add greenery or skip any florals and stick to greenery table runners.
If you want a more informal look, prefer an uncovered table and add a table runner and napkins – in black or white, that’s up to you. A moody table setting will be nice with black linens, maybe white napkins to refresh it, and a contrasting tablescape will be great with black and white linens together.
Black cutlery is an ultra modern solution, while gold or silver cutlery will add elegance and chic to the tablescape. Glasses can be black, too, if you have a mostly white tablescape and want to accent it with black. Take a look at chargers you are using and plates – will you prefer modern or minimalist, or will you go for something refined? Take a look at all these and many more ideas below!
