Florals

Flowers create a moody feeling like no other detaisl, so you should have a lot of them and they should be dark as these are one of the key elements of the decor. A moody wedding bouquet with dark red, burgundy and black blooms is a great idea for a moody bride because even if your weddign dress is ivory and not moody, a dark bouquet and maybe a crown will give you that desired look. Rock textural statement centerpieces and hang some flowers over the sweetheart table and other tables, too. These can be separate dark flowers in bottles, too – you don’t need much to create an ambience.

Tablescapes

To make the table setting dark and moody, you’ll need dark flowers – create statement arrangements and garlands, they will be a focal point of any table, make them bold and textural. You can also try greenery décor with black candles with no flowers, it also creates a moody feeling. Dark tablecloths, placemats and black, purple or navy plates will help to create a mood. You can also try a rustic bare table with black and chocolate-colored candles, gilded cutlery and other moody details, choose dark napkins also. You can decorate all the tables like that – a dessert table and a wine bar. If it’s a boho chic wedding, why not add colored glasses and feathers.
