Black,white and red wedding?

by DIY wedding planner on January 7, 2012

I’m looking for ideas for my chosen wedding colors. We’re getting married indoors in early October. We’re trying to find budget friendly ideas, hopefully some DIY ideas, that will pull everything together and make it look wonderful. I’m thinking Mostly black and white with splashes of red…real red, not wine, or brick…crayon red:) Any suggestions? I’m having a hard time finding any sites or images to give me ideas……decorations, cake, dresses, flowers, etc. Please help! I’m so stressed out about planning this that my fiance suggested that I just worry about the fun stuff like decor right now…..and yet…here i am…stressing about that…:)

Don’t get stressed out, that will only make things worse. Post your questions at different places and get different ideas. Here is a Bridal forum that deals with the problems your talking about.

just as you said try go to your local library and check old martha stewart WEDDING magazines she’s full of stuff like that. OR try this book.. I found it on line for planning my own wedding “How to Have an Elegant Wedding for $5000 (or Less) : Achieving Beautiful Simplicity Without Mortgaging Your Future”

Okay…girls in black & white dresses…guys in black tuxes(suits) with white shirts….the girls carry red bouquets…long stemmed bundles of red roses or red asian lillies-you can can get a deep shade of red) tied with a ribbon of either black or white…the guys wear red flowers on their lapels…very,very stunning…..

the cake…white icing & decorated with a silk floral topper of red flowers….I’d avoid black or red icing as it tends to bleed into the white and tastes bitter ( I.m a retired baker)..could use dark fudge chocolate with white & red flowers in icing, and the red & white silk flower topper with white ribbons trailing down the sides of the cake from the topper.

White tablecloths with alternating napkins in red and white…or red tablecloths & white napkins….the table arrangements should be red flowers with the white tablecloth or white flowers with the red table cloth…both with black ribbons…..
