Ideas for a Yellow and Black Wedding Theme
Guest contributor: Cathrin D’Entremont from Cathrin D’Entremont Weddings
If you’re hoping for a fresh, spring wedding day, then take your influences from the golden hues of daffodils and jonquils, with en elegant yellow and black wedding theme.
Choose a colour palette of warm yellow offset with black. This colour combination conveys elegance and formality with a touch of fun.
Décor and styling
Start with a backdrop of black tablecloths and add yellow satin table runners for maximum wow factor. Accent your tables with yellow satin napkins and black vases with bright splashes of yellow blooms. Black chair covers with yellow sashes completes the look.
Send your guests home with a keepsake that reflects your theme. Chocolates packaged in bright yellow boxes tied up with black ribbon look wonderful, or for something quirky, try yellow or black noodle boxes. Whatever your favors may be, wrap them up in shiny yellow wrapping paper with a black ribbon.
Mother nature loves yellow, so you have a delightful range of flowers to choose from: yellow tulips, chrysanthemum, dahlias, calla lilies, gerberas, orchids, roses, carnations and alstroemeria.
For a bright and bold appearance, dress your bridesmaids in yellow. For a more formal appearance, go for black dresses with yellow accessories – yellow belts, pashminas or fashion pearls can look stunning. Brides may like to consider a black waist band or sash to accent their wedding dress. Beautiful!
Think monograms, monograms and more monograms! Monogram everything! Add your personal touch to your wedding invitation, place cards, menus and cocktail napkins for pre-dinner drinks. Present your table numbers in shiny black frames, and add a flourish to your ceremony booklets with black covers and yellow ribbons along the spines.
