Getting into the wintry season mood here for our fourth Winter Wedding Soiree post on color inspiration! This time we’re presenting how you can create a modern “urban” look with a bit of vintage flair—using metallics like gold, silver and copper. See the glamorous and glitzy ideas we found to style your table settings, your bridal style, even your wedding treats (from cake to favors) and your invitations. All with the magic of metallics!
Gold + Silver + Copper: An Urban-Vintage Wedding Palette
It’s the holiday season, too. So incorporating gilded and glittery elements in your wedding is perfectly in keeping with the mood. Here, you’ll see allusions to Old Hollywood and Art Deco, too, which are all about sparkly luxe and glamour.
The Table Setting
Have your tables literally set a sparkly scene with sequined tablecloths, gold flatware, and modern, metallic place cards—as in this styled shoot featured on British Bride. Complement these with free-standing table numbers glittered in gold, silver and copper, like these from Designs by Embellish.
Style and Elements
Strike a Lauren Bacall-inspired pose in an Old Hollywood wedding gown shimmering with rose gold paillettes, inspired by this creation from Gibson Bespoke. Then carry a gorgeous cascading white bouquet with gilded leaves, as seen styled by Kate Foley Designs (via Ruffled).
Combine glamour and whimsy in your wedding cake with a gold topper (how fun is the trend of gilded animals at weddings and parties!). We spotted this cake by Sugar Bee Sweets (via After Yes Weddings).
Treats and Invites
As guests arrive at your reception, have a welcome display awaiting them—featuring luxe confections like gold “color block” macarons like these from Sweet Style, and his and hers cocktails fancily decorated for the occasion like these glitter-covered mini cocktail bottles, via One Fab Day. These would make wonderful favors, too!
And of course, all your wedding stationery and paper goods can include metallic inks and graphics. You can go geometric, holiday, vintage, or Art Deco as in these striking invitations from Paper Bride.
There is definitely something extra special about a wintertime wedding. And using metallics for your color palette can make it both modern and magical!
