The New Age of Wedding Metallics are here, they’ve officially landed – and we’re excited. Is there no end to rose gold or copper? Apparently not and we’re crushing on it hard! Gatsby would be proud of the wedding party you can put on with these gleaming winners. Bedazzle your day with these NEW ways to shine on with the next generation of metallics…
Pick Up A Pineapple
There’s something veryHollywood about a dazzling golden pineapple. Hear us out: Painted gold, a totally transformed pineapple becomes the epitome of vintage Old Hollywood glamour – the kind you’d have seen EVERYWHERE in the swish villas of the rich and famous. This would be the perfect quirky centrepiece of any table arrangement at your wedding and is ideal for the flamboyantly inclined!
Balloons have seen a bit of a revival. From the days of glittering proms and the ballroom blitz, this throwback is given the millennial treatment by our taste for the metallic. Give your balloons a foil finish by brushing on shining paint for an on-trend dip-dye effect. Having part of the balloon exposed works especially well! This’ll hit the sense of occasion note, whilst not looking tacky! Brushed = best!
Copper Cake Play
The botanical trend works BRILLIANTLY partnered up with metallics – especially during the summer months! Take your guests to the tropics by experimenting with shine and colour: A metallic patterned or foil decorated cake (in a minimal design) will look amazing spruced up with brightly coloured, hothouse flowers in daring fuchsia, festival pinks and sunset orange. Throw a bit of greenery into the mix and it’s a party!
It’s All In The Detail
Metallics should be the non-shouty encore: Understated, glitzy and black-tie brilliant. To achieve this look, you don’t have to go too wild on the finishing touches! Just a hint of gold here, a sprinkling of pewter there can work wonders in bringing together your celebration! Try not to let it dominate, instead, introduce in other colours and natural decoration to spin the perfect balance!
Get A Geometric Backdrop
Metallics and geometrics – a match made in heaven? Absolutely. This shows no signs of slowing down! Couples and guests are also looking for the ultimate photo opportunities and so, the backdrop was reborn. Given an entirely new lease of life, why not stage your photos in front of a modern art installation style backdrop – composed from floating metal shapes?
