Monochrome is here to stay – this trend topped the style stakes this summer and will continue marching on as we fall into autumn.

We know, we’re in denial that autumn is nearly knocking on our door again too (after the longest winter ever last year) but since we can’t control the seasons (yet!), we thought we’d take a little inspiration from the catwalks and encourage you to inject some of the magic of monochrome into your big day.

The AW13/14 shows were mad about monochrome; Chloe, Marni, Valentino, Bottega Veneta and beyond showed this classic colour combo with their own twists.

Add sleek sophistication to your contemporary city wedding or tone down the tropical at your warm weather wedding with simple, stylish monochrome tones.

Finally, if you truly want to dazzle your guests, shimmering metallics will add a special sparkle to your black and white theme.

It doesn’t get sleeker than simple black and white. A versatile colour theme, monochrome can create a fabulously classic, vintage feel or take on a modern meets edgy vibe.

Your bridesmaids will love you forever if you dress them in black, it’s a colour that suits everyone and it is very slimming. And who can say that they don’t love a man in a tux or a handsome black suit and tie combo? Swoon.
