Black and Gold Wedding Inspiration

Dramatic Black and Gold Wedding Inspiration

I recently posted gold and white wedding inspiration and as I was looking through Pinterest, I found an endless fountain of stunning inspiration images that weren’t limited to just gold and white. It’s impossible, almost, to narrow it down to just a few images and that’s why I absolutely love Pinterest and Instagram as I can bookmark them all.

The easiest way to share ALL my gold favorites was to organize the images into sections. So today’s post is all about the deep and slightly mysterious gold and black wedding combination.

I would say that this is quite a daring combination as it’s not a traditional color palette for a wedding. However, today’s brides are all about the modern take on traditional looks so this is perfect for the bride who wants that wow factor for a non-traditional wedding.

Styling a gold and black wedding is all about the contrasting details that look good together. This color combo can be both extravagant and sophisticated, making it the perfect mix for a statement wedding. I totally fell in love with the wedding dress in the collage image above (yes! That IS a wedding dress and not a bridesmaid’s dress). The glitter bodice is too gorgeous and the black skirt adds a feminine touch to the mix. Adding details like a gold tie for the groom and his groomsmen is a great way to keep the theme flowing. Gold ties are not the only way to add a bit of pizazz to the groom and his team, of course. Gold cufflinks, gold-tipped or sprayed boutonnieres, gold embellishments in place of boutonnieres or simply a gold satin napkin tucked into the pocket of a black blazer are all great ideas.

To set the scene and create a sophisticated look when styling a dark wedding like this one, add gorgeous gold details throughout. The gold floral rhinestone napkin ring looks great on any color napkin and will look absolutely stunning set against a black or charcoal/kohl color fabric. Adding an off-white as a highlight color also lends a refined touch to the overall design and breaks the high contrast a bit for those who prefer a more tapered color combination.

The matching gold floral rhinestone flatback is a great embellishment for invitations, wedding favors, and even accessories. Alternatively, the golden double circle buckle also looks amazing when paired with black as Alexandria Lindo proved with her stunning invitation designs. Whether you prefer extravagant or simple, more or less, the gold and black combination has it all and with a few adaptations here and there, you can make this color combination work just right for you.
