10 Trendy Black And White Wedding Invitations

The world we see is a fantastic array of colours. We associate colour with playfulness, energy and zest for life. If someone lacks a vibrant personality, we say, “Oh she is dull and colourless.” If someone is living a boring life, we say, “Add some colour to your life.” At least in the world of English idioms ‘colourlessness’ is not celebrated.

Why then do people use monochromatic invitations? For two very good reasons:

  • Anything vintage looks good
  • Plus, it is classy and traditional

A black and white colour code usually lends an air of formal dignity to the occasion. So is that all? Are we really hoping you would ditch all the amazing colour options available just for the vintage feel? No! Here we have put together a selection of the best black and white wedding invitations to inspire your wedding invites.
