As a star couple, you deserve a wedding that’s beautiful and feels like your special celebration. Black draping fabrics, lace gowns and chandelier crystals are just some of the décor details that, when accented with gold, elevate this wedding scene to something fit for a star.

You’ll wow your guests with metallic shine when you send them foil-stamped invitations. We love this chic, square design and the fun splash of gold foil.

Let’s look at how a black and gold wedding theme comes to life with all these pretty details:

Nothing gets the party started like a glass of gold bubbly. Provide Champagne at cocktail hour and have your emcee announce for everyone to grab a glass of Champagne to cheers to the newlyweds.

Accessorize your chairs and create a special seat for you and your partner, or your entire bridal table. Add signs, flowers or other decor to the back of the chairs. It’s easy to make it a DIY project. Buy black fabric (double the length of the chair) and drape it over the top. Make the two ends even in length and cinch it with a vintage tassel. Black fabric over gold Chiavari chairs- yes please!

Nothing says elegance and romance like the soft light from a beautiful chandelier. If your venue doesn’t offer chandeliers to borrow, find theme at home decor stores or thrift and antique shops.

Couture Details
Make a glam statement by taking your black and gold wedding theme and use couture details like lace, sequence and tulle fabric. Pick out bridesmaid dresses with these couture details or use them for your own bridal look.

Black Suit
Tall, dark and handsome—style your partner in a formal, classy black suit. With so many stylish cuts these days, you are bound to find one that matches your wedding style. Go for a slim fit for a modern look, classic fit for a traditional style or a charcoal grey for something rustic.

Head off to your honeymoon in style in an old fashioned Rolls-Royce. Give guests a show to remember at the end of the night as they dance and await the newlywed’s departure. Light sparklers, blow bubbles, ride off on horseback or drive off in a cool car. Whatever feels most like you, head out in style. Is there anything more luxurious than a black Rolls-Royce?

Set up a dining experience that’s unforgettable, with a look that makes guests feel like they’re dining with a star. Gold utensils and plate chargers add a lot to placesettings. Add personalized napkins and decorate the plates with menus and place cards. Guests will feel like a million bucks.

Black Fabric
You don’t have to use the linens or fabric accessories provided by your caterer. Make it your own with your choice of linens and accessories. You can find a variety of black fabrics with elegant designs and textures, like this black Pintuck taffeta.

When you start off with a black and gold wedding theme, you’re in good shape for a dramatic, yet classic wedding day. There’s so much you can do with this theme to make it your very own. Look at the details that fit your style and add your favorite fabric textures, metallic accents and decor. Have fun with it!
