More than ever, this is a popular color palette for a New Years Eve weddings. However, because it is such a timeless color combo, it really can be used in any season. We are working on a September wedding that is featuring this ultra luxe color palette, and needless to say we are excited about our fairy dust inspired event. Nothing beats a groom in a classic black and white tux. Just add a sprig of lily of the valley wrapped in a gold ribbon, and your groom and groomsmen are taken care of. For photos with your wedding party, be sure to have individual size champagne bottles with gold flagged straws. Not only will the photos be fabulous, but you will remain refreshed throughout the entire photo session :). As your guests walk into the reception, have a large chalk board displayed on a gold easel with your signature cocktails written in gold. Do the same for your menu and/or directions to ceremony vs dinner and dancing. We are all about fun linens, so be sure to either have an elegant gold overlay over your ivory linens (think Downton Abbey), or ditch the ivory all together and go with a gold linen with black accents (either runners or chargers). We are currently finding inspiration in one of our grooms bowties, and are using those as additions to our place setting and menu cards. Here are some photos that got our wheels turninghttp://pinterest.com/sfichtman/glitzy-black-and-gold/. Enjoy!
