A black and white wedding theme really does cover a myriad of elements on your day. And as we’ve heard throughout the month, there are so many styles in which to convey this striking theme. Your wedding stationery can be tied into the theme and style so seamlessly and beautifully, and two of the Polka Dot Wedding family stationery designers are here to explain why they love working in a black and white palette. 

Annette from the dreamy Danger + Moon design studio says, “Black and white is always a timeless colour palette and can provide a sturdy foundation for couples to modernise stationery through font and layout design. Often when I’m briefed “monochromatic” by couples, they are opting for sleek or classic styling and generally intend to introduce tactile papers or finishes, especially letterpress.”

“When it comes to on-the-day black and white stationery, it’s easily layered into styling that may show more colour through florals or moodiness in candlelight. Many choose their welcome sign in white and black to display as a keepsake in their homes for years to come.”

And Andrea from Deciduous Press shares some black and white wedding stationery from some of her clients’ “I Do’s” – showcasing elegance and simplicity that is so easy to achieve in a black and white palette.

“The images of Josephine & Timothy’s invitations are an example of our modern invitation style shown printed in beautiful black ink on soft white ivory paper,” says Andrea. “Paired with matching RSVP postcards, showcasing that black and white doesn’t have to mean bold and that a black theme can be incorporated whilst keeping the design style minimal.”

“Amelia & Quinten’s invitations suite is one of our more traditional and classic styles,” Andrea continues. “Shown printed in black ink on white paper. Paired with matching information cards and custom venue illustration of Curzon Hall.”

Whether you choose a classic or modern style for your day, a black and white colour scheme is one that will stand the test of time, and will always look beautiful when you pull out keepsakes from you day to share with loved ones in years to come.
