All that Shimmers is not Gold

All that Shimmers is not Gold

One of the hottest trends for weddings in 2017 is that after years of rustic chic glitz and glamour are back on the scene. Silver and gold have always been classic accents for weddings but now copper, rose gold and bronze are taking centre stage. There are many ways to incorporate these stunning metallics into your day for a look that is right on trend but also has a timeless elegance about it. Team these metallics with light pinks and greens and white for a light summery look or with chocolate and deep red for a cosy winter feel.


Thinking of something different for your wedding dress? A rose gold dress could be just what you are looking for. There is a huge range to choose from from simple shifts suitable for a garden or beach wedding to elaborate couture masterpieces. Want to add some shine to your attendants too? These Bronze bridesmaid dresses are stunning and will suit most skin tones.  

Wedding Cake

Rose gold copper and bronze can be be used as gentle accents on the cake or can be used for the entire base colour. This bronze cake really allows the subtle detail of the lace trim to really pop. Or for a really bold statement go with a thick rose gold glitter that covers the cake. These metallics can also be used as the merest hint on the flowers on the cake to add a bit more bling to a traditional style wedding cake.

Wedding Stationary

Your wedding invitation will set the tone of your wedding before it has even begun. Receiving an exquisite invitation with copper lettering will make your guests look forward to your wedding day even more. Your place names, order of ceremony cards, seating plan and table numbers can be designed and tied in with the invitations for a sense of continuity. While you are ordering stationary don’t forget to get some thank you cards for after the wedding.

Wedding Jewellery

This copper fern headpiece is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect addition to relaxed romantic wedding day hair. Consider rose gold as an option for your bridesmaids gifts. Different earrings all in the same colour allow you to pick something individual while still having a sense of continuity. Consider having your rings handmade and using a range of different golds to get something completely unique made. This stunning one tree hill ring and the rose gold earrings were made by Bridal Club Vendor Seventy six design.

Wedding Flowers,

Incorporate the theme into your flowers by using old world roses with the delicate shades of blush and tea or be bold with orchids and succulents, or simply use an opulent metallic ribbon to tie the whole look together.

We hope these ideas help you to shine on your big day and would love to see how you bring rose gold copper and bronze together too.
