Mix hues of black, charcoal and silver for an elegant, modern wedding celebration.

Can you give some ideas for a Black and Charcoal wedding?

I love this color scheme – it is incredibly elegant. What makes it effective is to create a contrast in the tones you use. I would use light gray as a base color, then accent with black, charcoal and touches of silver. Use different textures and patterns when layering the colors to create depth and visual interest on your table. To add a dose of color, consider using shots of vibrant teal, either in your centerpieces or as part of your place settings.
