Black and White Bridal Shower Ideas

Black and white is a timeless party theme that never gets old. For this bridal shower theme, we’re showing off foil and glitter gold accents. Stripe and polka dot patterns add a playful sophistication, and by adding different textures, you can make a bridal shower truly unique.

Plan a black-and-white bridal shower with metallic accents that the bride-to-be will remember.

We love that guests can receive something in the mail that shows them the party’s style. Choose a design that speaks to your party theme and that celebrates your guest of honor.

Here are ideas on how to bring a black-and-white bridal shower theme from “drab” to “fab”:

Gray Tulle
Tulle isn’t just for the bride. Add texture to your table runners with tulle, or tie it onto chairs. Feel free to experiment with other colors of tulle like grey or gold.

Mini Donuts
These powdered sugar mini donuts make the perfect finger-food treat. Because of their size and glaze options, donuts give you so many ways to play with style. Build a tower of chocolate glazed and powered sugar donuts for an impressive dessert bar, or plate donuts on a mirror for guests to grab.

Using patterned paper is a great way to add a unique style to your black and white theme. Wrap her gifts in black and white stripes, and gold polka dot wrapping paper. Create a backdrop with striped and polka dot paper or lay out patterned linens.

Chic and delicious—the perfect combination for a cupcake. We love the white frosting and the black cupcake liners for this theme. Try adding patterns to your liners, or to create texture, top them with roses made of frosting.

Dress Cookies
It’s all about her wedding dress. Celebrate the bride-to-be with details that speak to her big day. Make a craft or game out of frosting the cookies. Pre-bake cookies and set up a cookie decorating table where guests can frost these as their party favors, or create a game frosting the cookies for a prize.

With a black and white theme, we recommend gold glitter to make a “wow” statement. Whether on shoes or party decor, gold glitter adds beautiful shine to a black and white theme.

Use a classic color combination like black and white, and make a bridal shower stand out. Give this theme more by adding gold, textures and patters to create something really unique. Stylish details make a party just as unique as the bride-to-be!

Romantic Peach and Gold Wedding Ideas

Today, it’s all about a peach and gold love affair. These peach hues pair beautifully with metallic accents to create a romantic and elegant outdoor wedding. Garden roses and peonies are most popular—who can resist layer upon layer of soft, delicate petals. Lacy details, beaded accents, and layered textures exude a sweet and elegant decor that invite guests to join in on this couple’s love story.

Peach and cream colors look even more romantic with a touch of gold throughout the wedding venue. An invitation that uses cohesive colors, fonts and card trim offers guests a first look into a wedding style.

Note: We love how this bracket trim option compliments the romantic wedding theme.


Featured Wedding Invitation: Tenderly Textured. See our full Wedding Invitation collection here.

It’s all in the (romantic) details:

With so many flowers to choose from, pick the ones that speak to your style. Layered petals from Garden Roses and Peonies add a soft, romantic look. If a rustic theme is what you’re after, add in fresh Lavender, Baby’s Breath and Dusty Miller leaves into your wedding bouquet.

Gazebo Decor
A gazebo is a perfect gathering place, as well as another spot to incorporate your pretty wedding theme. Here, flowing drapery in peach, cinched with an arrangement of roses, beautifully ties in this chic style.

Go ahead and let bridesmaids feel feminine and beautiful with colors and textures that speak to the romance. Dress bridesmaids in beaded gowns in various cream, peach and blush dresses for a unique look.

Here’s a new twist on peaches and cream. Peach-colored macaroons with a cream center make a pretty (and tasty) wedding treat. Then, strike gold by adding edible gold foil accents across the desserts.

Walk down the aisle feeling beautiful from head to toe. There are so many photo ops to show off your stylish shoes. Shoes doesn’t always hide under your wedding dress. These peach vintage heels make a stunning cameo.

Bring in elegant details of soft, sheer textures in fabrics, lace and beading to emphasize a romantic wedding theme. And remember, there are no rules when it comes to your wedding. Make it truly yours!

Hindu Wedding in Half Moon Bay

Today, we are tickled pink to be sharing this vibrant wedding that took place at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay. If you live in California, you may have driven past this gorgeous location before. This wedding venue has sweeping views of the Pacific ocean, and is located alongside a lavish golf course. It’s a little slice of heaven!

Anu and Gaurav are a perfect match. You can get a glimpse of their fun personalities, via their joyous wedding decor. They currently reside in Boston, but flew into the Bay Area to celebrate their traditional Hindu nuptials with friends and family. We love how their time-honored ceremony effortlessly transformed into a modern, black tie reception. It’s the best of both worlds!
