Modern Classic : Black & White Bridal Party…

Dreaming of an elegant and classic black tie wedding? Then consider the modern monochrome style of black and white as the perfect bridal party color scheme. A classic and striking combination, this look brings a modern elegance to a bridal party, and is just as fabulous for a small cocktail party style wedding as it is for a formal sumptuous ceremony.

For this color scheme to stay looking classy and crisp keep this look uncomplicated and clean. The bold contrast of black and white lends itself beautifully to classic lines and designs, black being particularly fabulous in floor length dresses, with gorgeous black pumps finishing the look off elegantly.  For dramatic Hollywood style, black Bridesmaids gowns provide a simply stunning contrast to a white Bridal gown.


Looking for a little extra glamor?

Try combining an accent color to your monochrome look for extra impact. Adding a touch of bold color like vibrant red or cobalt blue will bring a fabulous highlight, but don’t over do it. Just a small hit of color is all that is needed, with fabulous bold shoes being the perfect way to bring the accent color to a Bride and  Bridesmaids, allowing for stunning photographs.

Perhaps introduce this accent with a fabulous pair of brilliant metallic red stilettos and glossy red lipstick; or match superb glossy orange satin peep toes with beautiful orange tulips.

Be inspired by the chic and fabulous Vera Wang by adding a stunning but simple black sash, or take it to the next level of sophistication with full length black satin gloves. Team this with a pair of all black heels –  classic peep toes or slingbacks are always popular bridal shoe styles – to join these strong black elements with a gorgeous white dress.

Keep the sophisticated look going with gorgeous satin shoes – satin will bring a soft shimmer and gloss, a fantastic material that makes equally beautiful classic point toe pumps as it does a sky high 5″ heel strappy sandal.

Tie the monochrome theme into your gown with a black lace or organza overlay, bring gorgeous detailing in with black beading or add a black floral headpiece -then pair this with a white satin shoe with a black lace overlay to complete the look.

Consider custom making your own gorgeous bridal shoes – after all, it is your special day that you will remember forever – create the perfect shoe to carry you down the aisle. When more than a traditional High Street pump is what you want, or want to link the exact materials and colors being used in your gown you can create a truly unique pair of gorgeous shoes to match your style.

Don’t forget the Groom and Groomsmen, they too can rock the monochrome look – a very sharp pair of black and white brogues will perfectly compliment the elegant look of the bridal party.

But remember, it is your day. Make your wedding as perfect, and as unique as you are. By choose the look, style and colors – be it a traditional and understated look you want, or if it’s all about expressing personal style, love your look on your wedding day!
