Black + Gold
I associate Black and Gold weddings with a classic look - cursive script, dark wood. Here's a modern take - bold stripes, whimsical bunting and animal highlights. Still undeniably elegant, with a new playful side! And if you're an instant gratification kind of gal (who, me?) click on the images and get shopping.
