Ever received a black wedding invitation? Probably not! And that's because when it comes to wedding invitations, many couples opt for traditional white or pastel colours. However, choosing black wedding invitations can be a bold, striking and very rewarding decision. Adding a touch of elegance, glamour and certainly some intrigue to your special day, black offers daring couples the chance to make their wedding stand out from the crowd. Planning a wedding oozing with glitz and glamour? Maybe a classy affair elevated with a black tie theme? Kickstart your wedding plans with a captivating black invitation that sets a mesmerising tone for your big day. In this article we share five of our wedding invitations most suited to black. 

The allure of wedding invitations in black

With anticipation building for your big day, the moment your guests open their wedding invitations can be super exciting. Because invitations don't only provide your loved ones with the much awaited details of your event, they ignite a sense of excitement and offer a quick peek of what's to come on the big day.

So it goes without saying, that a stunning black invitation card is likely to exude an air of mystery and elegance. Why? Because black is a powerful colour. Eluding to mystery, drama and sophistication, it's a choice that makes a statement.

Whilst many couples opt for neutral tones, pinks, pastels and whites, it isn't so common to receive a black wedding invitation in the post. And because it's a little unconventional, opting for a black wedding invitation speaks volumes about your unique style. It shows that you're choosing to embrace boldness and it infuses your invitations with an undeniable sense of allure that isn't otherwise easily achieved. Yes, we get all that from a colour!
