    It all depends on what “look” you’re going for.  I think black and white is very elegant and conveys a more fancy feeling/theme.  If you choose a dash of color, it throws in some playfulness and feels less formal.  Don’t do the rainbow thing though please.  😀

    i love black and white with tiffany blue, still very formal but with a bit of whimsy.

    Black and white can be gorgeous on their own. If I were to add an accent color (beyond purple!), it would probably be a bold yellow.

    I think black and white by itself is fine, but a splash of color always looks good. Ours is black and white with a (small) splash of bright yellow, and I love it!!

    I love black and white on their own.. We are adding a bit of yellow to ours though, just to add more options with flowers and make it a bit less formal looking..

    I love black and white on their own but you could add any bold color: hot pink, tiffany blue, yellow, green, red, etc.

    we’re doing a black and white wedding also 🙂  We’re using lots of white Calla Lillies throughout the entire day – so the green in the stems is going to be our accent color.

    Our wedding colors were black, ivory and gold/champagne.  I liked that it was pretty neutral in color, I wanted something that would look sort of timeless in the photos.  Also, the black and white photos looked awesome.

    We are doing black and white as our “official” colors, with subtle accents of silver and blue and other winter colors (since we are having an early January wedding).

    I understand the whole black and white color scheme – it’s very elegant, the bridesmaids can wear black, etc. BUT you need to choose flowers, linens, invitations, etc. and you can’t do everything (especially flowers!) all in black and white. If I were you, I would let your flowers be the pop of color for the boquets and on the centerpieces. You can use that color as an accent wherever it makes sense and you need to add color. Almost any color will look great as long as it’s ‘warm’ like reds, pinks, even yellows and oranges. Blue or green would be too difficult since it’s so hard to find flowers like that.

    That’s just my opinion, obviously do whatever YOU want and good luck!

    I love black and white weddings with a splash of a bold, accent color (then again, I’m a little biased– I’m using black/white/green!).  When looking for ideas online, I noticed that what helps a black/white wedding look more cohesive and elegant is the use of patterns.  Look for interesting black/white patterned materials, then throw in your accent color through flowers or accessories.  I like this so much more than setting a red and white centerpiece on a black table cloth, for example— much more visually interesting.
