A Very Chic Christmas


To be honest, black and white is one of my least favorite wedding color schemes–maybe I’ve just been turned off by boring damask prints or calla lilies (sorry calla lily fans, they’re just my personal least favorite!). It also seems like one of the last color schemes that would be Christmas-y. I challenged myself with this inspiration board in both ways–I wanted to make a black and white board that I actually loved, and I wanted to make it perfect for Christmas. I think that with the right textures and details, it worked! No damask in sight. :)

My strategy for this board was finding black and white details that were elegant and sleek, but fun, and incorporating hints of Christmas, like a snowy venue and lots of ribbons and bows. It’s subtle, but I definitely think the festive element is there. What do you think?

    Black and white is one of my favorite wedding color combination, especially for winter. Under to my humble opinion is chic, as you are saying, elegant and pretty. Great. Nice inspiration board Lisa.

    Many wishes for a very Merry Christmas Holiday!
