How To Add Rose Gold To Your Wedding Day
Touches of Luxury
Metallic colors have always been a favorite of mine, especially when it comes to weddings. After all, who doesn’t love a little tasteful shimmer? I personally love gold, and these days, from jewelry, home interiors, make up, and even clothing, rose gold has become a massive hit! If you are looking for a wedding full of sparkle and glamour, then add a touch of this lovely romantic metallic into your wedding color scheme.
If you're not sure how best to include it, the mood board below shows a few ideas of how to add subtle touches of rose gold to make your wedding day glisten.
Try a few small items here and there, like in your jewelry, hair accessories and shoes, and sprinkle several small rose gold elements into the decorations. Candle holders and other table-top items are perfect for this. Or, for a more statement look at your wedding, use fewer but larger pieces like sequined rose gold tablecloths or table runners. If that's too much for your liking on reception tables, use them on smaller, accent tables where your guestbook or escort cards will sit. Bouquets are also a perfect place to add in this beautiful color—use rose gold ribbon in the wedding bouquets with flowers in beautiful creams and pinks. Have your florist use champagne-colored ribbon on the boutonniere. Sprinkle rose gold, red and pink flower petals around the reception tables. Try including a gold vase to your reception tables to add a beautiful, yet simple, touch of shimmer to your event.
One of the most impactful places to add gold is on your dessert - think a multi-tiered cake that is etched with gold leaf. Is this too much for your liking? Try a metallic dessert stand or rose gold cupcake toppers. They also make cupcakes with gold sprinkles! Include light gold silverware or napkins for your guests to use while eating. You can even have your napkins customized with foil-press in gold for a subtle touch of color.
Signage can be a great way to add hints of gold on your big day. Use a gold-colored frame with acrylic glass to write out a "Welcome" sign. Write your escort cards in metallic-colored paint pens. Create your table numbers on gold stands. Add "bride" and "groom" signs to the back of your chairs at the reception and create them in a shimmery, rose gold color. Do you have a wedding #hashtag? Make signs with it written in gold to post around your venue.
Use gold on your wedding day in subtle, yet meaningful, situations that will be sure to leave your guests in awe. Give away gold confetti for guests to toss as the couple exits the chapel. Set-up a metallic backdrop for your photo booth stand. Add a champagne table and make "Pop, Fizz, Clink" signage to place next to the glasses. Give away gold-colored party favors, such as ivory and gold colored macaroons, rose gold "Mint to Be" mint boxes, or key-shaped bottle openers.
