Modern Black + White Wedding Inspiration

You may think a black and white wedding is no frills, but even if you're a never-too-fussy type of gal, this modern black and white wedding inspiration will tickle your fancy.  With polka dots, stripes, and graphic elements, with a strategically placed gold bow here and there, it's fun and fanciful at once. Make it modern with a dotted invitation, a dramatic bowed wedding gown, and oh-so-mod maids dresses.
