Black tie weddings tend to be a more formal wedding day, oozing sophistication and class. A black-tie dress code indicates a more formal occasion with men wearing tuxedo style suits and women in floor length gowns. Wedding stationery helps set the tone for your black-tie wedding day so your guests know what to expect and can start planning their outfits too!

At LouPaper I have a range of wedding stationery options available to suit a black-tie wedding. The Carmen stationery collection is the epitome of pure class combining handwritten calligraphy, luxury gold foil and refined typography on a monochrome colour palette. Perfect for a black-tie wedding because of its timeless yet contemporary feel.

I created the Emma stationery collection when working on Simon and Emma’s winter black- tie wedding held at Northbrook Park in Hampshire. A gorgeous style including fresh foliage, romantic white florals and frosted Perspex signage. The couple also chose his and her vow booklets with touches of my handwritten calligraphy on black card and secured with silk ribbon. A gorgeous keepsake from their wedding day.

A black-tie wedding doesn’t have to use a monochrome colour palette. I recommend using calligraphy in foil for a more formal look which many of the collections on my website feature, such as the Ella invitation which incorporates copper foil on a dark green watercolour background.

When we work together on your stationery I can help advise on the wording if you would like it to be more formal to suit the black-tie wedding or to take a more informal approach.

If you’re looking for inspiration on black tie weddings, I’ve featured a few on the blog previously such as Lauren and Tom who held their black-tie wedding day at wedding venue Hyde House in the Cotswolds. With an abundance of beautiful florals and dried grasses, styled with pale green bridesmaid dresses and black and white wedding stationery with calligraphy touches. Have a read here.

I do love a monochrome colour palette and it looks stylish all year round, but the colour decision is all yours! A good starting point is the curated collection of designs available on my website which can all be customised to the colour palette of your choice, to suit your wedding day whether that’s black tie or a completely different style of wedding.

I have lots more inspiration and ideas on my website and Instagram account too.
