Having a black and white wedding? Looking for something that's a little offbeat to wear under your wedding gown? Try these boots by Vaike Haas of uku2. Vaike is an Etsy artisan who makes special boots for special occasions or even everyday wear.
While you certainly won't wear dyable silk shoes after your wedding, these boots can be added to your casual wardrobe after your wedding. While these aren't for every bride, the bride with a sense of adventure will enjoy wearing these down the aisle--not to mention they'll make fabulous pics!

Double Duty Bouquet in Black and White

From Style Me Pretty Photographer Amanda Wilcher
Simple enough to put together yourself, this wedding bouquet turned centerpiece does double duty. Not only double duty as a bouquet and centerpiece, but two colors, black and white. Perfect for the bride planning a black and white wedding reception.
Add it to a black and white lace sash or a dress with black trim. The lace gives the ensemble a pulled together look but one that has the look of handmade.
Add a tag with a table number to let it do double duty as a centerpiece and table number. Love black and white weddings! Chic but so easy! No angst over colors--choose two and and an accent.

Black and White Empire Waist Wedding Gown

The perfect black and white design. I love the way the bottom looks with the black design near the hem! And the bow at the waistline sets off the empire look waist. I go back and forth over whether I love or hate black and white weddings, some days I think they are the only way to go, others...not so much. What do you think? Would you go black and white? Or are you looking for some more color?

Isacc Mizrahi's Tea Length Wedding Gowns

At Bridal Fashion Week Isacc Mizrahi showed two knock out black and white tea length gowns for 2013. He showed his longer lengths as well, but these tea length gowns look so chic and have a modern yet retro look.  Does that make any sense to you? Probably not!

The one above is my favorite, but it was a hard decision to make! I love the way they are so feminine yet sleek. No frou frou veils, just slicked back hair, clean and modern, yet with a tea length look that reminds me of playing dress up in old gowns that belonged to my mother!

Mizrahi has a real eye for bridal wear and he always designs dresses that catch your eye and are feminine and elegant.

Black Lace Votives

Looking for a simple DIY project? This one is easy. A little glue, votive holders, some battery powered votives (you can use the real thing is you want to). This is so easy! Anyone can do it!

Just choose some lace that's wider than the candle holder to give it height! You don't have to stick to black lace, just choose a color to compliment your wedding.
