Opulent but not over the top. That’s the aura we’re hoping to inspire you with via these images for a winter wedding all glamorous in gold and glitter! Somehow the gold casts a warmer tone on the scene than the more commonly seen silver and crystal. And of course, there’s no denying its richness and elegance. From your bridal ensemble to the reception table decor to the wedding favors, then, see how gold and glitter may be just the motif for your wintertime nuptials!
Bring that Golden Glow to Your Wedding Decor
Since gold is such a dominant hue, even touches of it throughout your wedding elements will already make a stylish statement. At the ceremony, for instance, picture yourself as a truly radiant bride! Carry a stunning bouquet of gilded blooms, whether gold-dipped natural flowers or luxurious silk ones. Then, for the perfect accessories, don romantic tear-drop earrings, multiple bracelets sparkling with brilliant diamonds (or their look-alikes!), and a sexy pair of gold peep-toe pumps.
Come time for the reception, stage a ‘wow welcome’ for your guests with escort cards which are actually succulents painted gold, or a formal seating chart featuring classic antique frames. The table settings, of course, are the ideal showcase of this decor scheme, with gold chargers and gold-rimmed china and glassware, softened by floral arrangements in ivory and pale peach. Echo this treatment in the chair adornments literally dripping with strings of crystals tied with peach ribbon.
And your wedding desserts must be no less glitzy, of course! Not hard to do with a show-stopping wedding cake embellished with gold ‘beadwork’ and displayed on an ornate stand. Plus classic macarons as favors, each glammed up with a swipe of edible gold dust.
Other elements you could highlight with gold and glitter:
- your wedding invitations, place cards, menu cards, and favor tags edged with gold
- gold confetti and crystal sequins for your wedding toss
- a stunning backdrop of gold balloons and twinkling fairy lights for your dessert buffet or drinks bar
- your guest book where guests pen their wishes in gold ink using a quill
- a gold vintage convertible as your getaway car!
