BLACK – AN UNUSUAL BRIDAL COLOUR INSPIRATION.
As a bride, picking your colour for the big day and making sure that; you and your squad look glam can be mentally draining especially if you are a newbie with colour combination, or have an impression about certain colours.
Thankfully, the world is becoming more experimental and aware, such that no colour is a taboo anymore. People have become more creative and daring with colours, thereby making bold fashion statements that remain on the lips of all.
Black was regarded as a funeral colour by most cultures and races and considered a NO NO.
It is sometimes regarded as dark or even invisible, but it is also used as a sign of power, and while black can stand for minimalism or even poverty, it can also be a sign of luxury.
However, nowadays, black is the new sexy, especially when you handle and accessorize nicely with colours like Gold and so on.
It is now on the list of wedding colours.
The only constant thing in life, is change right?
And one great change is in the view of colours as regards fashion.
Black has a wide range of symbolism and meanings than any other colour. Black can send totally opposite messages depending on who you ask. So when we use black, we need to think about both the message we want to send, and who is going to be receiving that message.
You must also consider that it has different meanings in other countries and cultures.
A plethora of colours can be used to mix and match black. A beautiful example in the picture is the Mustard yellow. You heard right. Yes, mustard!
