Adding Wow to Whimsical

A mini trend we’ve been seeing at weddings are little toy animals painted gold. You see them here as elephant escort card holders (1) with glitter added. And yes that is a gold dinosaur (2) gracing an otherwise formal wedding table setting!

Gilding Your Place Settings and Seating

Delight guests with gilt-edged place settings—whether through gold plate chargers (5), cutlery, napkin rings, place card holders, or gold-dipped stem glasses (4) that you can actually DIY!

Then for you, the newlyweds, prepare special sweetheart chairs. Hang Mr. and Mrs. signs (6) in ornately carved gold frames, and embellish them with ribbon and foliage garlands.

Glamming Up Food, Drinks and Favors

Little touches of gold create a glam surprise as guests enjoy your reception menu. Consider an elegant gold calligraphy topper (7) for your wedding cake, and delightful edible gold stars (5) on the rims of your signature drink!

You could also give glitzy edible favors, like wedding cupcakes topped with gold sprinkles, macarons dusted with gold glitter, and gold-enrobed gourmet chocolates. Or for a non-edible gift for guests, think gold carved frames with a personalized thank-you note tucked inside.
