Red + Black Wedding Inspiration
Formal and striking, a black and red color palette for an evening wedding is a great way to infuse color and simplicity into the decor. Bridesmaids in floor length black gowns and groomsmen in shiny, red satin ties start off the evening. Guests can sip on champagne decorated with bright red cherries while looking for their seating assignments on a blackboard with red frame.
