Every year there are different wedding trends that take off. In 2020, we are seeing monochrome bursting back onto the scene. If you are left wondering; what exactly is monochrome? It is a trend that only consists of choosing black, white and grey colours. It is simple yet classy, fitting into every season throughout the year. It is timeless.

Some brides and grooms take it very seriously, meaning that everything on their special day has to follow a monochrome theme. Other couples are more relaxed and may only seek out monochrome dresses and suits.

Of course, everybody knows that a white wedding dress is traditional. It remains the most popular choice by brides across the country. If you are having a monochrome wedding day, you do not have to break from tradition if you do not want to.

You can still wear your white wedding dress on your special day. But you can choose to accessorise with black. This could be in the form of jewellery, hair pieces or your shoes. It can be subtle. In addition, you can make the bride wear black. This could be in the form of a tuxedo. This is naturally black and white, which will complement the monochrome theme.

Everybody loves to take selfies at weddings. So, why not give your guests some fun? With the taxi photo booth, they can climb in and take photos with friends and family. And do not worry; the taxi photo booth fits your monochrome theme. It is a real traditional taxi that used to drive around the streets of London. This means that it is black and white.

It is perfect for your big day and takes over the role of the photographer and the entertainment. Inside there is high-tech camera equipment for photos and videos. What’s more, guests can take home black and white prints from the night as a memento. We love it and know you will too!

Love Letter Lighting

There is also going to be the opportunity to further decorate the venue for your monochrome theme. This can include Love Letter lighting. These are free-standing letters that spell out the word ‘love’ and they are white in colour. We love them because there are many LED bulbs featured that can light up your venue. They are great as décor and for lighting. Of course, they are amazing for a monochrome theme too. When they are positioned near other black and white decorations, they will look great and complement each other.
