Pittsburgh flair: A black & gold wedding

Last week's Pittsburgh flair talked about treating your guests to some black and gold candy, but what if you want to take the Pittsburgh-inspired color scheme to greater lengths? What if black and gold were the colors of your wedding?


A black and gold event may conjure images more Steelers tailgate party than stylish wedding, but it doesn't have to be, as this inspiration board from Snippet and Ink proves:
When Snippet and Ink posted this a couple of weeks ago, I immediately thought of the Pittsburgh color scheme, though of course that wasn't what she had in mind. She describe it as being bold and unexpected, and it certainly is. But it still has a formal, elegant feel to it.

If you're going to plan a black and gold wedding, my advice is to keep most of the elements clean and classic. Also, a healthy dose of white will lighten things up. Go for style over local kitchy-nes. You'll end up with a wedding that's modern, memorable and totally Pittsburgh.

any more ideas on a black and gold wedding?

Well, I said to go for style over the local touch, but if there where a couple places where I'd add a bit of Pittsburgh, I'd suggest:
-A Terrible Towel send off, instead of bubbles or rice
-Pgh-themed table numbers (i.e. each table named after a Pgh-landmark)

Feel free to email me at lauren@perfectmemoriesevents.com if you have any other questions...I'd be glad to help!
