Modern Wedding Style: Black and White Stripe & Bright Colors

There are an endless number of color palettes, themes, or patterns you can choose for your wedding. But over the years, there are two design elements I keep coming back to: anything black & white or striped. Black and white is one color combination that will never go out of style. It’s bold, dramatic, and elegant. When paired with gold, the combination exudes feminine glamour. There’s an elegant formality to it that makes it perfect for a classic black-tie affair.

But black and white also works beautifully with bold, bright colors. Splashes of pink and touches of orange give the design a playful, modern touch. And while stripes may seem innately preppy, they aren’t! They work with any style, making as bold or as subtle a statement as you like. The result is whimsical, classic and thoroughly modern.

If you’re a bride who loves timeless, sophisticated designs with an unexpected twist, this modern wedding at Michener Art Museum (featured on Dream Weddings magazineblog and Munaluchi Bride) From a champagne tower to eye catching Garnish floral arrangements and stunning table top decor from Party Rental Ltd, there’s so much to love about this modern style wedding. Of course, Ashley Gerrity Photography did a fabulous job capturing the magic of this wedding.
