We’ve always heard that black and white wedding inspiration will always be a timeless, classic look. But is it just me, or has it been trending recently in the BEST way? Whether it is or not, I’m here for Austin weddings that *pause* on the quirky for a hot second to bring forth a forever on-trend black and white wedding design. Today, we’re taking a look at Cassie and Cody’s stunning Wish Well House wedding in Georgetown, TX.

Let’s start with the classic black & white Wish Well House wedding attire

I love that our wedding party went with the flattering black tux and bridesmaid dresses but the real show-stopper was Cassie’s dress. It certainly was set apart from the contrast of the groomsmen and bridesmaids – just as any bride should be!

The minimalistic black & white wedding tablescape decor was *chef’s kiss*

Taper candles, bud vases, repeat. So simple yet so romantic. The design itself felt very clean and modern, giving the reception a sophisticated look. This is one of my favorite parts about the Wish Well House wedding venue. With an all-white reception space, the possibilities with a blank canvas are endless. While this black and white wedding design boasts a classic look, we’ve seen the space very easily turned into a bold, vibrant atmosphere bursting with color.

Let’s talk about implementing flowers in a classic Wish Well House wedding design

Mabry with The Flowered Blue is a fantastic florist who understands the importance of floral balance. White flowers were sprinkled throughout the guest tables while the eye was drawn to a beautiful cloud of baby’s breath above the head table. I greatly admired this look because the room felt so cohesive without having to go over the top.

Speaking of admiration, I didn’t know an all-white bouquet could be such a show-stopper until I saw Cassie’s. The key? Texture, texture, texture. And of course – a fun ribbon to tie it all together. Quite literally. *Wink*

What about dessert?

Ya’ll, our couple selected a chai-flavored cake and it did *clap* not *clap* disappoint *clap*. Keeping with the black and white Wish Well House wedding design, the cake was adorned with all-white frosting and crowned with a black cake topper. I’m not sure about any dessert that is the color black, but I can absolutely see myself decking out a dessert table with black macaroons. Food for thought – what flavor would they be??

We get it, black and white wedding design at Wish Well House is forever here to stay!

With the decorations, attire, cake, and flowers, you can easily create a beautiful, timeless look that your guests will surely love. So, if you’re looking for a classic color scheme for your special day, consider going with black and white!
