Black is the New White

It’s a scene as old as time, people are cheering, rice is flying through the air, and the bride and groom pause for just a moment before stepping into a luxury car to be whisked away. While that car is important, the focus is still on the bride, the groom, and of course her lovely white dress. Perhaps this is why more and more wedding planners have shifted to booking black luxury cars instead of white ones, so that the focus can remain where it belongs.

Traditionally the bride will don a lovely white dress, which further symbolizes the purity of her intentions. As the rest of the wedding falls into place people have selected other white colored items in hope of completing a theme of color for the day. Recently however, it has been noticed that this can be a mistake, especially when it comes time to select a getaway vehicle. read more
