Adding a little extra shine and glamour to your wedding decor is easy with the resurgence of metallic accents. Glowing copper, gleaming gold, shiny bronze, glittering silver, and rustic bronze are all popular variations on this luxurious trend. Explore some creative ways to incorporate metallic accents in your wedding decor.
- On the Wedding Invitations
Glam up your wedding invitations with metallic accents! Your designer can use gold, silver, bronze, or copper inks to make the pieces shine, literally.
Rather than including too many metallics of different colors, keep the same metallic accent color for your save-the-date cards, RSVP cards, invitation inserts, reception place cards, and wedding programs.
- In the Wedding Ensembles
Once you choose the type of metallic accent you want for your wedding, you can include it anywhere you like, even in the accessories you choose for your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Choose cufflinks, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, lapel pins, and more to match your preferred metallic accent color.
Ask your florist about incorporating metallic elements into the bouquets and boutonnieres for the bridal party. You may also want to include similar accents in the florals you use at the wedding reception.
- For the Wedding Ceremony Decor
Include your favorite metallic elements in the decor you place at the ends of the rows in the ceremony space. The touch can be as simple as a sprig of metallic-painted berries, a string of metallic beads, or a metallic ribbon.
- On the Wedding Reception Tables
The centerpieces for your reception provide plenty of opportunities to include metallic accents in your wedding decor. Vases, candle holders, candelabra, urns, or small statues could be solidly metallic or rimmed with hints of gold, copper, or silver.
Use metallic paint to add glamour to natural objects that you’re using for your centerpieces— such as pine cones, twigs, seashells, stones, or fruit.
- On the Wedding Cake
One of 2019’s hottest wedding cake decorating trends involves including metallic accents. Edible imitation gold leaf, copper trim, or silver foil can take your cake from gorgeous to glamorous and make it a social media sensation in its own right.
If you’re going for a cool, elegant look, silver might be the right choice for your cake. Gold lends a luxurious, opulent feel, while copper is rosier, with an industrial aura. Talk to your baker about how to include metallic elements safely and beautifully for your wedding cake.
- In the Wedding Favors
Your wedding favors can carry on the metallic theme— think candle holders in geometric shapes, imprinted metal bottle openers, delicate keychains, wine glasses printed with metallic writing, or tiny copper pots holding miniature succulent plants.
