Nothing says grandeur like lots of gold! Check out this collection of gold-inspired ideas and turn your wedding into a grand display of love and luxury.
Gold on Gold
Gold comes in a variety of different shades and like many colors, these different shades can look amazing together. So don’t be shy when it comes to decorating because copper-gold accents pop beautifully when placed on a champagne-gold tablecloth, and matte gold napkins look perfect on white plates with metallic gold chargers. The reception shown here tosses gold in with gold and all looks just magnificent.
When using different shades of the same color, it often helps to mix textures throughout the décor to add interest and depth to the overall look. The wedding cake takes this idea to the extreme, getting super playful with different patterns, but it’s a great example of how much fun mixing textures can be. Even the Golden Grandeur Wedding Invitations we’ve paired with this look mixes a linen texture with smooth white paper for a splendid display of wedding details.
Playing with Light
When choosing gold as your main wedding color, you should play with lighting as well so they accentuate each other. Candlelight reflects beautifully off gold metals like candelabras. Gold picture frames sparkle on each table holding table number cards. Even the gold glitter bridesmaid dresses shown here naturally play with the light. If all goes well, your venue’s lighting should work with your decorations to create a warm golden glow throughout the space.
