Rich gold against a crisp black and white background - a decadent and sophisticated combination that reminds us of the 1920s, Flappers and Sheiks and F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel 'The Great Gatsby'!

Tableware and Cutlery
Choice accessories include the use of large gold plated dishes, gold cutlery (not common, but definitely available), candles (to pick out those opulent yellow tones) and some elegant wedding Koozies :-) to remind everyone of the special day! 

Floral Arrangements
Some iris are almost black and while quite 'flowery', look absolutely stunning. Of course there are not many other naturally black flowers available, but dyed or tinted flowers can be a really viable option too. For white flowers - again iris work very well if you want to keep thing in a theme, but there's also white roses and orchids (great if you want to have less busy display).

Accessories
Feathers - such as guinea fowl, or even better, ostrich! There's lots of great ribbon combinations too (see image above). 

Music
It's back to the 80's for music - Spandau Ballet's 'Gold' is not only and excellent song - it's a great floor filler too! Other discs to spin include Ebony and Ivory, by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney and of course 'Black or White', by the late, great Michael Jackson

Note: I had a quick search for some more tunes with gold in them (I ran out of ideas after 'Gold'!) and what I got back was so cool, I thought I'd just add them here!
