If you are to consider a black and white flower arrangement for a wedding, then you may have a hard time getting an image in your mind of the entire reception décor. And we are most of all sure that you are puzzled about how you will manage to come up with black flowers.
Of course, the wedding flower arrangements consisting in black flowers (which are not exactly black) tend to get more and more popular among elegant and sumptuous weddings. Also, you can use such wedding flower arrangements for minimalist themed weddings easily, it is but a matter of taste and expectations.
The main thing about black wedding flowers is that in fact they are flowers that have (in most cases) a dark purple tone. Black is indeed usually associated with death and this is probably the reason why couples avoid choosing black and white wedding flowers for their decor.
And this belief comes as a very pertinent point of view, but keep in mind that with such wedding flower arrangements you can be really original – just think about it, how many wedding receptions have you attended that had a similar floral arrangement?
Most of the times, in order to achieve this arrangement, couples use black roses, which in fact are roses that bear a dark red shade that create a black optical illusion.
Should you not like the black roses idea, then you will probably feel more thrilled about irises, which also can be encountered in a variety of colors that resemble black, as well. The main issue with these flowers is in fact the price. They tend to be pretty expensive mainly due to the fact that they are not very easily found.
But let us assume that you did manage to obtain the desired flowers. Now where are you going to place them? On the table as centerpieces and, of course, you could also incorporate them in your wedding bouquet.
The latter idea should be considered only if you want to emphasize your original side and make a difference. For a more powerful effect, the black can be highlighted with the help of deep green leaves and stems.
The most important thing about black and white flower arrangements is to know how to play with colors and their shades, and in this manner you will obtain the desired playful visual effect that will remain in the memory of your attendees for a longer period of time.
