The color white and weddings might seem to be an inseparable match. However, brides nowadays no longer limit themselves when it comes to choosing colors for their wedding, especially with bolder shades that come to dominate this year's trend. Wedding vendors can expect to spot certain details featuring even an unusual color, like black! This year, black is coming back to the wedding scene. Scroll down to take inspirations from some black-colored elements that can create a significant change to your client's wedding celebration!

The bearer of good news could be used as a major hint of what your clients' guests should be expecting to see on the wedding day. A plain black envelope would do a great job to implicitly suggest the wedding theme.

Gifts & Favors
If your clients think of rewarding their companionship, their bridesmaids with personalized gifts, why not create black hangers as pictured below as well as greeting cards that can instantly reflect the wedding theme?

Now for the wedding favors, if your clients wants to give something sweet, an insanely dark treat such as black truffle macaron or black velvet cookies are some great ideas. Otherwise, wrapping the gift inside a black-colored box instead, is a simpler and hassle-free option.

Seating Chart & Table Setting
If your client is having a seated party, a seating chart is a brilliant idea to give yet another first impression to your client's wedding guests. Take a look at some ideas shown below and be creative with your own ideas to make a great impression to your client's guest.

Now about table setting. If your client is opting for an industrial-style venue, mixing together black chairs and gold calligraphy on bunting flags would add an elegant side to the vintage atmosphere. Meanwhile, if your client's is going for a classic formal wedding , you can use some ghost chairs and hand-write them with black markers (seen below). Wedding decorators can also use black-colored tableware, from plates to glasses, to complement the overall table arrangement if your client insists on a bolder black placements in their wedding.

Photo Booth Background
A selfie-spot or photo booth is always seen in most weddings. You can give your clients two options: a seating photo booth or a simple background of their favorite quote. These areas will surely be a fun-filled corner where your clients' guests can express themselves as well as create lasting memories.

Wedding Cake
Don't a black-tinted wedding cake looks tempting? It's definitely a must for wedding cake vendors to create black wedding cake to complement the overall theme. Some might hinder from using this color on food, but look how gorgeous these cakes turn out!

Flowers & Wedding Arch
It's time for the florists to make their magic happen with the flower bouquet! A mixture of the dark-hued flowers or berries with white flowers will make a really unique addition to the bridal bouquet. Don't forget to keep the men's boutonnieres look dapper with a touch of black too!

For wedding decorators, you can bring the black to the ceremony by having a black-hued arch as pictured below. You might want to avoid this if your clients have some strict cultural values to adhere to, but if not, perhaps you can give this idea a shot.

Bride, Groom & Bridal Party
It might be very uncommon for the bride to wear all-black outfit on her wedding day, but it doesn't make it impossible. Plenty of unconventional brides have walked down the aisle in black and they looked amazing. If the idea is too unfamiliar, wedding shoes vendors can suggest the bride to wear a black pair of wedding shoes on their big day! Another option is to dress your client with a stunning statement black jewelry. For the groom, we suggest they look the most dapper amidst all the other men in the bridal party. To do so, the dressmakers and designers can offer their client a black-colored shirt and vest that can bring the elegance to the next level.

And now the bridal party. It's also a good idea to suggest the bridesmaids to to wear all black instead of the bride. This would make the wedding seem more harmonious and well thought of. Whilst the groomsmen can get easily dressed with them all clad in black tuxedo.

What do you think of black in your client's wedding? We agree it's unconventional, but with more bride- and groom-to-be who have bolder preferences, it's not a surprise to see it gracing some weddings of today.
