When designing for this shoot, since we were working with a black and white palette, we opted for softer shades of black and white for the wedding gown and tux.

The gown by Ines Di Santo from The Bride Room is a soft off white lace with delicate details. It was our choice because of the soft, feminine and romantic vibe. It was well suited not only for Christina but the venue has a lot of white, and we felt a very white gown would have been too bright for the surroundings. The color agreed with the season as well.

For the groom, instead of choosing a standard tux, we opted for a softer black. Not at all gray, but not a harsh black. It also had softly rounded lapels, which harmonized well with the romantic vibe of Christina’s dress. The soft blushy mauve bowtie added more softness and a little touch of warmth. When working with a black and white palette for a wedding, cold is not the desired outcome. We still want warmth.

When choosing your gown, consider:

  • Your shape, hair, skin tone. You may have a particular design you are drawn to, but try on several styles tom ake sure it’s the best option for you.

  • Your surroundings

  • Season

  • Your fiance’s attire should coordinate well with yours

  • The overall picture includes everything!
