Are you bored with all the wedding colour schemes? If yes then why not make a statement and have a metallic themed wedding which is great alternative twist from the normal colour schemes. Here are some ways to incorporate metallics into your day without breaking the bank! The dress is a great way to grasp the metallic theme; there have been stunning gold dresses rocking the catwalk from Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier. In many ways, wearing a gold dress can feel more special than a white one as it is very unique and can be more flattering with golden and olive skins tones.
To compliment the dress you will need a shimmering bouquet so use flowers like chrysanthemums, carnations, button mums, English daisies, and dusty millers to make an elegant bouquet. Also, to make your bouquet have more `wow` factor then spray some of the flowers with gold and silver paint, this will help to add texture and shine. To carry on the gold theme, it would be a great idea to serve your guests elegant champagne cocktails, for a contemporary twist on a classic drink, pour some bubbly into a stem less flute and garnish it with a single golden raspberry.
Decorate your wedding reception with throw pillows, table runners or dinner napkins which are great ideas for using metal colours as you can adorn yourself in silvery fabrics, gold textures and sequins. For your table centrepieces use golden candles but for a vintage touch place them in elegant candelabras to create a formal atmosphere. Everyone knows that great style is achieved by the small details so incorporate metal in less obvious ways like on the envelope liners, using metallic ink against black paper, adding metal studs on the table cloth or sticking tiny crystals on the bride’s bouquet.
The main thing to remember is that striking a balance works wonders so be careful not go around adding metallic touches to everything as it isn’t necessary, following some of these ideas is a great way to make a statement without going over the top!
