I think a pop of red would look great.  I’ve attached some photos, hope they help.

If you want an understated look, I think that the greenery will be fine. Something like this

The brides bouquet and the centerpieces have just enough green in them to offset the black and white.

I’ve been to a couple of black and white weddings, they both used pops of red and it looked beautiful!

Anemones would be great for your bouquets.

Unless you want green to be one of your colors, I would go easy on the greenery, as any color against black and white will really pop out and appear to be the dominant color. I imagine you want people to think of your wedding as black-and-white, not as green. I agree that anemones would be a good choice. In general I think decor does well when people really dedicate to the idea of their colors; anything that is in a distracting color that isn’t in the scheme is going to lessen the impact you’re going for, which can eventually lead to the point where people aren’t even sure what your colors were.

Calla lilies, roses, white tiger lilies?  Or are those too off-white?

You could do a lot of green and white and pick one accent color to through in. Like you said a red or fuschia. I always think you have to be careful with red and black though because it can look very dramatic and sometimes harsh. Anyways whatever color you pick you might consider using different shades of that color to blend it. Here is a friend’s wedding that had black and white and added purple and greens.

We had a black and white wedding, with all white flowers.  White roses, hydrangeas, peonies, freesia and roses… the bouquets were wrapped in black ribbon with white pearl pins in the wrap, and mine was wrapped in white ribbon with black pearl pins. 

My dress was also white-white; I think the white flowers looked really nice against the dress.

I am also having a BLack & White wedding but our flowers are Red Roses.

So the centerpieces and bouquets will be red roses 🙂

but you can pretty much have any color flower.

Your choice of flowers depends on what you want people to remember.

 If you have a black and white wedding with red flowers, they will remember the pops of red.

If you want them to remember a black and white wedding, then I suggest you choose white or black, or black and white flowers, and clear glass , black or white vases.

we’re having a black and white (ivory) wedding and i really want that to be the dominant color scheme. Fiance thinks we need some sort of color so we’re thinking about using a pale blue as an accent color, i think it adds just a little color without being dominant. i LOVE b&w anemones, although depending on the time of the year, they can be expensive to get. mini white cala lilies have a deep/purple/black-ish center that looks good. i’ve also been obsessed lately with white gerbera daisies with black centers. i like the idea of getting some color into the bouquet through the fabric/ribbon wrapping the stems.
