Wedding trends can change incredibly quickly. One year, it might be all about natural materials and eco decorations while the next, metallic, bold colours and luxury might be the order of the day. Keeping up with these changing trends is an important part of planning a stylish wedding. Although you don’t want to be dictated to by the latest fashions, keeping one eye on what’s hot, and what’s not, will help you decide what type of wedding aesthetic you want to go for.
This year, gold and glamour are firmly back in fashion. Adding an indulgent tone to any wedding they’re used in, these classic marriage themes can be used to great effect in a wide variety of venues.
Gold table settings
Adding gold to your table settings is a fantastic way to bring a bit of glamour to your reception. From gold candleholders to gold vases and gold serviettes to gold chairs, you can transform the way your venue looks with a few well-chosen metallic accents. If you’re using colour as well as gold in your table settings, make sure you select tones that work well with your metallic pieces. Dark reds, purples and pinks go perfectly with gold, or you can opt for a more subtle theme and choose whites and creams for the rest of your décor.
Gold wedding dress
One surprising way that gold is finding its way into 2019 weddings is in the wardrobe. More and more brides are shunning traditional white gowns and opting for something a little more luxurious instead. Adding a unique touch to your wedding attire and ensuring your dress really stands out from the crowd, a gold gown can be the perfect way to make a statement. As @StyleCaster says, “The gold wedding dress trend is exactly what you want it to be—whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist, a trend-chaser or tradition die-hard, a sparkly bride or strictly edgy one.”
If you don’t quite want to go the whole hog with a golden gown, you can still use some metallic elements in your outfit by selecting some gold accessories. Gold shoes can look great with the right dress or you can opt to have a gold bag, a gold hairpiece or a golden belt or sash around your middle. Find some gold ties, shoes or other accessories for your groom and the rest of the bridal party so that you all match as you walk down the aisle.
As the most important day of your life, your wedding is the perfect excuse to indulge in a little glamour. Using gold in your accessories and décor is the perfect way to enhance the look of your wedding and bring a little indulgence to the occasion.
