{event inspiration} softer side of black

Very busy with work today but I did want to check in quickly and express my adoration of this new wedding dress from J.Crew. It proves that black touches in a wedding can be soft and romantic and not always modern and formal.

What are your thoughts on black wedding accents? Hope to be back shortly!

I love the black accents. At my wedding, I wore a black Swarowski crystal choker with a beautiful black flower attached and black suede shoes. The dress was silvery grey silk, full length with one shoulder strap. A few friends were surprised at my choice, but I was (and still am) very very happy with the contrasts and style it made.

This is such a lovely collage, darling!
Is it wrong that I'm more smitten with that exquisite cake than the gorgeous gown?

I saw that dress in my most recent J.Crew mailing and loved it!

I think black is timeless. I like that it provides such a striking contrast to brides in weddings.

I love this post! My own wedding was an ivory and black affair (except for a punch of red in the centerpieces at the reception). I thought the black was soft, and I loved it. I got a lot of compliments too.

It's all so gorgeous! I just love a touch of black, it adds such sophistication. I think I need to re-new my vows so I can wear that dress!

How fabulous is that wedding dress? I only wish JCrew had made them when I got married... maybe next year for my 10th... hmmm.

Oh, and I love accents of black in an interior or at a wedding. Almost makes it instantly classic.
