I think it looks really classy and nice, but I just love color too much to have a black color palette. I always think it looks great in pictures though.

The only thing I knew about my wedding details were that I would have a black wedding. Now we've incorporated a French theme and a little bit of purple (the girls and I will be wearing purple shoes!) and any color accents will be purple! Everything is coming together!

I am all about this color, my main colors for the wedding are black and ivory, however I did add a cherry red and pale yellow for accents. I'm adding some silver and gold but those seem standard. I like the elegant feel of black, and yes very sophisticated!

I know I am the odd one and please do not take it personal if you use black. little lone me just dont like it for weddings. mourning cards always had a small black edge and meant bad news. I  cant take black for weddings but i admit it looks very pretty when done in the right proportion

I am sorry folks but I don't like it it won't be a colour at my wedding. It reminds me of funerals, I do think it can look nice when done done well but I have heard to many bad comments on wedding program's so its a NO for me

I am having a black and white wedding! It's gonna be outside and in the evening, so I'm going for that elegant candle light wedding! I probably will use white more than black but I think it's gonna be beautiful!
