Black and White Wedding Theme

There's always something inspirational to find about weddings all over the web for a romantic black and white theme. When I think of this theme, I think patterns of damask, vintage lace, toile, tulle, posh pearls, polka dots and crisp white linens all over the decorations with accents of black. A little hunting on the web yielded some interesting stuff:

Dress for the bridesmaids - I love this one

Wedding cupcakes

For romantic guest favors, some rose sachets in white

Some more pretty ideas from Here Comes The Bride, Big Fat and Hey

Wedding Gloves To Wear

I've always believed that wedding gloves are the most romantic piece that completes the wedding gown. Whether it's a long pair (i.e., opera length) or short pair of gloves, it is the essential accessory that adds that elegant touch to the day. There is a wide array of gloves on the web from cheap ones to fancy lace, but looking for the right one isn't easy at all:

In leather

In satin, yes, I know this looks really cheap!

In lace

In every possible design..
