Magnificent metallic tones for your wedding decor

When it comes to transforming the style of any wedding, colours are essential. The mix of charming tones that is generated can reflect more of your style, good taste and personality. For 2014, and also for next year, metallic colours have erupted onto the bridal scene as an incredible accessory for your setting. Here we bring you some ideas to help you achieve this magnificent look on your big day.

The magic of metal, silver, rose gold and natural gold are no longer reserved for an evening event, their charm is just as great for day weddings be it indoor or outdoors. The use of these metallic tones is infinite, and they really create a style statement unlike any other and when combined with other vibrant tones, the result is simply perfect! You could mix white linens, vibrant flowers, neutral tones and frame an elegant backdrop with these brilliant metals.

Wedding decor with metallic touches can be made to look so effective in a huge number of ways. A table setting is the perfect example of this. Combinations, textures, embroidery, colours and glassware. Using a tablecloth with prints will look sensational with a selection of gold cutlery and flowers in neutral tones that help to set-off this style perfectly. To make an even greater impact, we recommend you choose vibrant colours; these combining with silver or gold will look phenomenal.

If you want something a little more understated, then perhaps choose the base of your centrepieces in these tones. The use of silver or gold can also work beautifully with your floral arrangements. You could also have crockery with prints in these tones; a simple gold pattern will add a real touch of glamour to your reception. Table names or numbers in sparkling gold will look incredible for an evening reception, or silver photo frames as a seating plan will really blend in perfectly with this colour scheme.

It’s the little details that are so important when trying to create a specific theme or look, which is why we think metallic tones on your cake or dessert table will look very striking. Paper pompoms in mettalic or gold colours are ideal, especially if you combine them with a perfect dose of neutral tones. These magnificent colours can also be brought into your desserts: a cake with these perfect matching details will become a stunning focal point.
