Just a Touch of Gold

Photobooths, chevron, emerald, gold accents, oh my! What do these four things have in common? Current wedding trends, of course!

The trend that jumps out at us today is the recent resurgence in the use of the color gold in weddings. From gold leaf covered cake toppers to gold-glittered peep toes, the wedding world is gaga for gold!


Beyond the obvious ways to bring in gold to your wedding (gold wedding bands, gold charger plates, gold silverware), adding gold in unexpected places will set your wedding apart from the rest.

Complementing the springy palette of soft pinks and warm greens, gold is a great way to add some glitter to your occasion without covering everything in sequins (talk about messy cleanup!).

For the do-it-yourself brides, a gold tinged manicure for the big day is an easy and subtle way to add gold to the mix. Also, gold leaf kits are sold at most craft stores and can easily turn any object into a glittering gold cake topper or decoration!

Gold can even be brought into your wedding ensemble! Gold toned wedding gowns are on the rise as well as gold jewelry, beaded sashes, and eye makeup.

There you have at it ladies and gents! Go create that gold themed Pinterest board and fill it with beautiful and easy ways to add a little gold to your big day. Make sure to take pictures, we’d love to see your glittering results!
