    They aren’t funeral-like at all and I think if you want to keep the same theme, then go for it. In other countries, the color black is soley associated with death and funerals, but here I have seen literally hundreds of black and red/pink/blue/purple etc. weddings. I say go for it. They won’t way it would like like a funeral is if the decor was funeral-like. Your invitations are lovely, btw, I’m so impressed.

    At first I was thinking no, but if they look anything like your invites I say go for it!

    I can’t remember ever seeing black paper at a funeral. Funeral programs are usually white….

    Black is actually my favorite color, so we’re in trouble if anybody thinks death and black ALWAYS go hand in hand. If you like them, go with them! 🙂

    I think that they would just flow with the rest of the paper products that you have.  Those are beautiful and not at all funerally.

    I had black for the outside of my ceremony program booklet… see the below picture.  I also had black envelopes and borders for my invitations themselves.  my colors were black, white, and carolina (sky) blue so i used those colors EVERYWHERE – i was fully committed to the color theme, ha!  my bridesmaids also wore black dresses and shoes.  and nobody ever said a word to me about it looking funeral-esque when i was doing the planning.  everyone just said it was elegant and simple but pretty!
