Hosting a one-of-a-kind wedding isn’t an easy feat these days; there are so many chic trends and classic traditions that are tempting to follow – not to mention it’s difficult to be inventive when you’re balancing planning with your everyday life. Luckily, most wedding planners can sense your overall vision and suggest unique ways of presenting your desired motif on the big day. You can include everything from custom escort cards to a specialized menu to really make your nuptials stand out. One simple way to infuse originality into your reception is to infuse it with black décor details.

Though the color may seem too intense for a wedding, many couples have been able to pull it off in a major way. Contrary to popular belief, if used in the right way, the hue will not evoke a solemn tone, but a bold one. It can create an elegant atmosphere that other colors cannot.
