Even though we are coming up on lots of beautiful summer weddings, some of you out there reading are probably planning for fall or winter weddings. I absolutely love black details for weddings during the colder seasons…I even love black wedding dresses. However, you must be careful with this trend. It can quickly turn into a cheesy goth look. If you google anything regarding “black” & “weddings”, you will quickly find out what I am talking about. 🙂 If you think high-style & modern, then you’re on the right track and will be able to pull it off! Below are some storyboards to give you a little inspiration. If you’re not a fan of adding in black to your actual attire, consider it as a touch to your flowers. They can range from full black bouquets, like the ones in the Black Swan shoot we featured a while back, or a subtle touch with feathers or the center of the flower. Either way, this is a fun way to add a modern & dramatic touch to your day!

Jewelry, shawls, feathers….oh my. The added piece of glamour to your wedding attire is ALL in the accessories. Headpieces are the new trend with the couture wedding accessory designers – from hairpins, headbands, combs or ornaments. They are now becoming the essential piece to your wedding wardrobe. Designers, Monique Lhuillier just speaks Park Avenue with her beaded hairpin and Kenneth Pool radiates with his silk flowers for any beach side wedding. Lots of flowers, feathers and beads. They just capture glam and romance. You can make the accessories as simplified or as over the top as you feel – there is a niche for all.
