I personally love yellow with b/w. Lime green is also very popular. Pink looks nice if you want a more feminine look.

My wedding is also B & W and I refused to have roses and no pastels or pale colors. I wanted bright and dark….I requested hot pink and purple and we are using dahlias and rannuculus and hydrangas (only dark ones) and fiddle head ferns and other such flowers. Everything is going to pop!

I agree – lime green would be really cute.  I got married last September and used spider mums, pom pom mums and hydrangeas.  the spider mums and hydrangeas are huge, too, so you don’t need a ton to make a bouquet… money saver!!

I think green hydrangeas/orchid  will bring out the blk and wht.  My wedding is in sept too. Also during that month people like to use orange a lot, but it might be too dark when its next to black.

I adore black and cameo pink…that’s a gorgeous combo..very vintage..Like a cameo if you will.  I’m tossing in aqua to spice things up.

Or you could mix ALL SHADES of pink…bright, pale, coral..that would absolutely look incredible!

I think that hot pink would look really beautiful with black and white, but if you wanted to stick with just black and white, I really love love love white anemones.

I would just pick your favorite color. Black and white goes with everything and any color would pop. I am getting married in August and my accent color is purple. Lime green is very popular right now. Bright colors always look really nice next to black and white linens.

I did a mix of purples/pinks to add some "pop" to my black/white tables. It worked GREAT!

Here’s what we did….

One centerpiece had strands of orchids (2 purple, 2 fuschia) wrapped in a 12′ cylinder. It was filled with water, had a think layer of black rocks on the bottom, and a submersible LED light at the base (in the rocks). 

Another centerpiece was a set of 3 square vases (2 were 6" tall, the other was slightly taller). Each had a different color (varying from light purple, dark purple, and fuschia). They were each filled with black rocks about half-way, to incorporate the black.

The last was a tall pilsner vase with a purple kissing ball (carnations) on top. 

Hope that helps spark some ideas for you and your decor. =)

I’m a B&W girl as well, and our accent colors are teal and red. So we’ll probably be doing white/red flowers with teal embellishment rather than going for teal flowers.  You can do a lot with ribbon and chargers!
