Black and White Wedding Color Board

Last week when we shared our coral and mint inspiration board, we never thought we’d receive so many requests for other custom color palettes in our Ask Emmaline inbox! We are excited to help with color palette inspiration and we promise to get to all of your requests! (Want yours added to the mix? Send us your colors here!)

First up — a black and white wedding colors board, a special request from bride-to-be, Terese. Her email tells us that she’s hoping for a “classic, traditional look” but with “modern touches” and “a bit of gold or silver metallic“. To round out this look, we’ve found invitations, table linens, a flower girl dress, ring dishes, cake, rings, and more! PLUS, to make this post even sweeter, we’ve teamed up with the awesome Tori of bag shop Toriska for a new giveaway! One lucky bride-to-be will win a black, silver, and gold sequin clutch purse. Good luck!

10 Festive New Years Eve Wedding Ideas

Happy New Years Eve!

happy new year hats

photo: concept photography via the bridal detective

New Years Eve weddings have to be one of the coolest ideas ever. The date works on so many levels: it’s a chance to ring in the new year as newlyweds, an opportunity to throw the biggest NYE bash ever, and since the date usually falls on any day (not just a weekend), you can save money AND most of your guests have the next day off of work. Win, win, win. For a New Years Eve wedding, the color palette is usually white and metallic, like gold or silver; black is added as a sophisticated, elegant look. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite festive New Years Eve wedding ideas for you today. Which one is your favorite? I love the confetti shooter in #10!

10. Confetti Poppers for Grand Exit

Is there anything more festive on a New Years Eve wedding than confetti? Have guests shoot confetti from these as you’re exiting your ceremony space (given your venue says its okay).
