  • We had Apple Red and White (we got married Dec. 30) It was really pretty with the Christmas decorations and snow =)

    Black, white and a blue would look really pretty

  • Ok, pee your pants but I was married almost 18 years ago. It was litterally like the movie "my big fat Greek wedding". I had poufy shoulders on my gown like a line-backer, my girls wore green sparkly taffeta bottomed gowns with gold entirely sequined on top with a multicolor triangle at their waists of huge different shaped crystals. Whoa........ I was married in the fall so we had green tablecloths & napkins and multicolor floral arrangements on the tables in Huge silver candelabras. It was spectacular at the time but hysterical looking back now! To answer your question, purple or red (deep burgundy) is very popular for Weddings now. Hey, it's your day so go crazy!!!

  • Black, burgandy and ecru. Only hints of the ecru to lighten the other two. White would be way to stark. An off white would be lovely.

  • We had a Fall wedding, so our colors were ivory, gold, burgundy, peach, and rust. Google Images can help you with inspiration. I googled black and white wedding and found a few neat color combo ideas.
