Black & Yellow

CharlotteLucey only received 1 vote (the audience is still growing), but the worst wedding color combination pick is “Black and Yellow”.   After some research and review, certain color combinations can  be less desirable than others, but done in moderation (such as black and yellow) are very modern and tasteful

Black is typically thought of as an evening color, but paired with the brightness of a true yellow is appropriate for a summer day wedding.  If you want to incorporate black and yellow for an evening wedding, my suggestion would be to go with a softer pale yellow or neutral cream. I was really pleased to find a great blog “Ruffled’ that has wedding inspiration boards and features and they showcased a modern antiqued wedding with yellow.

Personal Favorite: Mix and match bridal party yellow shoes

For a summer wedding, guest favors such as paper fans, flip flops, or honey jars (pictured) are sweet ideas. They can also serve a dual purpose as your favor and place card in one. All you have to do is attach a small tag and name to the item and you’re set.

TIPS AND TRICKS:  I always encourage brides to give favors that their guests can really use or consume.
