Wedding Ideas Inspired by Dark Romance


Inspired by enchantment and medieval style? Change up bridal tradition and add some mystery to your day. Play up your dark side with a black sash for your vintage gown and a dark smoky eye. Enchant your venue with dried flowers and pop some renaissance luxury with a chandelier as your focal point. Incorporate old romance in your ceremony with organza black chair sashes and full white flowers. An elegant combination of dark and light.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again—we love punches of colour with your white gown. Embrace this hot hue with bright shoes or standout jewels. You could even change into a stunning red gown for your reception. We picked five fabulous red items that would be perfect for your wedding day and beyond.
