You have booked the most amazing venue, pinned down the date and the countdown has officially begun. Now comes the hard work – sometimes planning the finer details to your special day can sometimes feel insurmountable. With so much to consider and decisions to make it is no wonder some brides can turn into their very own version of bridezilla! Just one of the many difficult decisions you must make is your choice of wedding day colours. The colour scheme you choose for your wedding can really define the look and feel of your day. But with so many colour combinations to choose from, where do you even begin?
One way is to look towards the key colour trends of the year or season that you are to be married in. A choice of wedding colour that has gained popularity and which appears to be around to stay is rose gold/copper. With an elegant and regal appeal, rose gold is a metallic colour that can be used as a standalone colour theme for your special day or as a base colour to complement and enhance your other colour choice. Its versatility means it can look equally as beautiful teamed with deep, sumptuous colours such as emerald green or navy blue for an autumn or winter wedding as it would be paired with blush pink or aqua for a Spring or Summer celebration.
Accents of rose gold and copper taken throughout your wedding décor can add a touch of luxury to elegant country house wedding receptions, but can look equally as stunning set against a rustic barn backdrop. Think copper votives, charger plates and table centre pieces on crisp white table linen or alternatively by using rose gold sequin tablecloths you can add a sense of decadence in an instant. Teamed with beautiful white floral centrepieces of classic roses, lilies, and lots of vivid greenery this can look truly fantastic. The theme can also be taken through to the accessories you choose to wear on the day. For example, a fabulous pair of gold wedding shoes, a rose gold tiara or vintage gold necklace would look beautiful and complete the luxurious look you are hoping to achieve.
For your choice of wedding day lighting there are some stunning choices to match this beautiful theme. For an industrial and eclectic vibe, there are a great many upscale projects that you can choose to tackle yourself if you are on a bit of a budget, or buy ‘off the shelf’ or hire if you are willing to pay the price ticket. Think of copper piping turned into fabulously different modern day candlebras, or if you prefer more of the traditional, mason jars filled with copper wired fairy lights, or bronze lantern holders filled with romantic church candles.
For wedding day stationery to set your theme, your choice is plentiful. Invitations adorned with metallic gilding will be guaranteed to establish a decadent and luxurious feel to your wedding from the very outset and create a positive first impression for your wedding guests.
Whilst planning your colour scheme of course, it is of course, important to bookmark all your ideas, either electronically or better still, on a physical pin board – sample swatches, pictures, ideas and inspiration. This way you can be sure to really streamline your ideas and ensure your initial thoughts and designs work together for beautiful wedding day styling. Happy planning!
