The Knot recently outlined 20 “crazy color combos” that work beautifully and one of their selections was a gold and butter color palette. I actually view this color combo as gold and less shiny gold. A gold wedding can be really well-done and the color choice will add a flair of luxury to your big day by default. Some really cool ways to use gold in your wedding is with classy gold cufflinks for the groomsmen, sparkling gold heels for the bridesmaids and, of course, gold wedding bands for the happy couple!
You don’t need a lot of gold coloring to make an impression. Take a look at our Gold Rush Invitation to see what I mean. This invitation is mostly white but all the embossed lettering and detailing around the frame is done in gold. It’s just a touch of gold, but the color still takes central focus against the pristine white background. Using gold for your wedding color palette can lend a luxurious and glamorous feel to the whole occasion.
Moving on to silver, this color selection is a great choice for a touch of glamour and elegance, without going overboard. I have been seeing tons of silver wedding gowns recently. Take a look at this Pinterest board to see what I mean! Silver gowns are becoming quite the trend and many modern and fashion-forward brides are opting for these off-white gowns to stray a bit (but not too far) from tradition. Touches of silver can work in the same fashion details I outlined for gold, but I also love the idea of using silver in combination with another bold color such as orange, yellow or peony. It’s a great way to jazz up your big day in a subtle way.
