In love with Jennifer + Kyle’s glitzy and glamorous look? This is the post for you! Read on for a few ways to make your day black and white and chic all over.

A. To set an ambient mood at your reception, cluster mercury glass and velvet-flocked votives on low side tables and guest tables. Velvet-flocked votive from Beau-Coup, mercury glass votive from Luna Bazaar.

B. We LOVE this chic little black dress from Kirstie Kelly’s Fall 2010 collection for Disney. The brooch at the shoulder is the perfect accent! Her adorable black peep toes don’t hurt, either.

C. Can’t afford to rent real crystal chandeliers? Hang a few of these black chipboard and lightbulb versions from the rafters. We found them at Urban Outfitters.

D. A handful of Smitten Sticks guarantees a raucous photobooth and/or adorable group shots. Pick them up here!

E. DK Designs makes the most beautiful clay flowers. Even if black-centered anemones aren’t in season the month of your wedding, you can add these faux blooms to your cake (and even your bouquet!). Bonus? They’ll never wilt, meaning you’ll have a gorgeous memento to keep for years to come.

F. Bring in a few fun patterns with inexpensive ribbon. Use striped or dotted strands to wrap boutonnieres stems or the stems of a bouquet. Thick stripe from Paper Mart, thin dotted from Create for Less.

G. We love these ethereal, easy-to-make tulle puffs either for ceiling decor or favor box toppers. Get the DIY instructions here! (Bonus: they call to mind Jennifer’s beautiful veil!)

H. Glitzy drops for a fraction of the price they look — we’ll take them! Find these chandelier earrings at Emitations.

I. A graphic ring pillow will look snazzy scooting down the aisle in the hands of your ring bearer. Find this one at Bklyn Pillow, or make your own with a couple squares of fabric from the craft store.

J. Spider mums, with their giant heads, make for an interesting and economical vase-filler.

K. The black Bellini chair from Classic Party Rentals would look gorgeous in Jennifer + Kyle’s sleek loft space. If you don’t want to outfit every table with these beauties, consider splurging for just the head table. CPR’s black leather ottomans are a perfect spot for guests to perch during cocktail hour!

L. The Nina Elke shoes (which Katharine wore at her wedding!) are the perfect combination of glitzy style and price. They’re even on sale right now at Zappos — go get ’em while they’re hot!

M. We love this chandelier invitation set by Wiley Valentine for Minted!

N. Jennifer’s voluptuous veil finds its match in the “Sunflower” from Toni Federici. Talk about a style statement!

Carolina couple Jennifer + Kyle definitely win the glitz ‘n glam award for V3. With the help of Elyse Woodward Events, the bride + groom transformed the Design Center of the Carolinas into a sparkling soirre reminiscent of the Great Gatsby. Cake Lady Jill definitely takes the cake for her fabulous display of black and white confections. I’m in love Mille Holloman Photography all over again for sharing this gem with us.

    I really love the black and white here! So elegant and beautiful! Especially the centerpieces!

    I just love the seamless incorporation of a relaxed lounge area in the reception space. Unlike many other wedding and reception photos I’ve seen, the lounge space is intermingled with the dining tables, and almost resembles them as well. This looks like a great place to catch up with some guests you haven’t talked to or weren’t sitting with! Also, the entire black and white motif is gorgeous!

    I’d love to know where they found the “J” and “k”. I’ve been looking for something similar for our wedding in May.

Choosing my favorite Real Wedding from V3 was easy: Jennifer + Kyle’s glam North Carolina celebration at the Design Center of the Carolinas literally had me begging Lara to take it for print. (Special thanks to Millie Holloman Photography for sharing!) Lucky for all of us, she gave in to my black + white love affair. The bride wore a classic form-fitting gown and retro-inspired veil from Poffie Girls, and dressed her maids in stunning black sheaths from Bella Bridesmaid. Jennifer’s feathered bouquet (love the dark centers of the anemones!) designed by Flowers from the Cellar is pure magic. Planning and styling credit goes to Alyse Woodward Events.
