@bridetobe75:  Our entire wedding was black, so obviously I’m biased lol. But no, I don’t think that sounds like too much black.

@bridetobe75:  My wedding colors and black and white,  so I think I’m biased too 🙂

I definitely don’t think it’s too much black, though. Especially since you’re bringing in the other colors as accents.

I did a black and white wedding and I think your colors sound great! My friends had a negative response as well especially because it was in April but after it was all said and done they all admitted they were wrong and it was vercalorie try and timeless!

Good luck with your planning!

I think it depends on where you are.  In the New York metro area, there’s never too much black.  If you’re in the South, black at weddings can raise eyebrows.  (And in some parts of the South, so can red!)  If you love the look and it’s chic to you, then go for it.  But in some areas, yes, people do react badly to there being a lot of black at a wedding.  It just depends.

We’re doing black and white with emerald green bm desses and gold accents. My mom keeps saying it’s too much black…but I’m ignoring her, ha! I think it’s classy and elegant.

I’m having black bridesmaids dresses at a summer wedding.   Whatever, black is classic and it can never go out of style.  I feel like I can look back at the pictures in 50 years and not think, man why did I choose that color?

Not to mention your girls might actually get to wear their black bridesmaid dress again instead of being shipped to goodwill Or put in the halloween costume box

I agree that black looks classy and refined. Do you have pictures of invitation samples or your card box so we can see how it looks? Thanks!
