Wedding Inspiration from the Movies: Black Swan

Earlier this week, I asked all of you who like Green Wedding Shoes on Facebook what movie you saw this past year that you would like to see some wedding inspiration from. One of the most popular movies suggested was Black Swan. Since I was a ballerina throughout high school and college, I love the idea of pulling inspiration from a ballet movie – without the crazy killer parts of course! The first board is based off a sophisticated black color palette – a black tulle wedding dress, lots of black feathers + lots of glamour!

Or maybe you are more of a White Swan. I love the mix of pale pink + white – it would make for such a pretty wedding! :)

Love feathers? Check out some of these white feather dresses by Romona Kevezan on top and Pronovias on bottom that you could wear for your wedding day.

Or maybe just a gorgeous feather hairpiece is more your style! So many great options out there right now. Some of my favorites include these top two by Twigs and Honey and the bottom two by Lo Boheme.

  11. The Black Swan inspiration is fabulous for an engagement dinner, while the whisper-pink set is perfect for a wedding, as you said. And don’t you just love the hair adornments by Twigs & Honey?

  12. That feather clutch has been on our favorites list for months! This is such a gorgeous post.

  13. How utterly divine! Now I wish I could have a wedding do-over and go with this theme!!

  14. It wouldn’t be for me, but I love how dramatic the black swan inspired wedding would be. And I am all over the white swan inspiration.

  15. That black dress is seriously amazing – (trying that again, with my information! :-P) What a gorgeous collection!

  16. Great inspiration! I’m loving all the feather accents.

  17. Ever since I saw this movie, I had the feeling that it would influence a weddings because what is not to like.

  18. As a former ballerina, this is wonderful! I love the soft feathers. If you’re wanting more ballet inspiration though, you have to check out Houston Ballet’s current performance run of Marie – as in Marie Antoinette. Click below for a recent article.

  19. Beautiful! Definitely more of a black swan kinda girl myself. ;)

  20. Omg!!! Looooove. The black, the white, the feathers. I would live have it all in there.

  21. Oooh yes! Please someone do a black swan inspired wedding! Then submit photos of course.

  22. This is definitely my fave movie-inspired board you’ve done! A black swan (or white swan) wedding would be GORGEOUS.

  23. I’m getting married in June. Typical? No. I am having my dress made by an up-and-comer and am only giving a few details to a few people about the dress. The feature I’m most excited about: FEATHERS will be involved!

  24. So ethereally beautiful and dreamy! Gorgeous inspiration, I love both Black and White swan, combine the two for the best of both worlds.

  25. where to get that ring!? i’m absolutely in love with it. i think the link is wrong :(

  26. For a bride who’s going with feather embellishments on her gown, a more streamlined, but still statement-making headpiece might offer a nice twist. Here’s the one I’m wearing at my wedding:

  27. yes! every time i read that somebody is sick of the feather trend i die a little inside! i love the texture feathers bring to dresses, flower arrangements, and especially the beautiful hair accessories.

  28. Love this theme, the feathers on the dresses are amazing
