White-Tie Wedding

I love black and white weddings. Full of sophisticated styling and class, a color palette of black and white provides a simple backdrop, yet promotes a rather polished atmosphere. Instead of traditional black-tie, invite your guests to a "white-tie" affair where white bows and other pearly accents take center stage.
