From silver to rose gold, metallic weddings are on trend in 2016. No matter the season they look stunning, and it’s easier than you might think to create your very own metallic theme. Here’s some shiny metallic wedding inspiration!
You can add metallic touches to everything in your wedding, including gifts and favours. Opt for the good old metallic drinks containers or pretty accessories for the wedding party, and use shiny favour boxes to hold sparkle-adorned cupcakes for your wedding guests.
Whatever your style, even your dress can have a metallic flair to it. Whether you go for a full metallic dress or stick with delicate accents (such as a line of silver on the edge of your wedding veil), you’ll find something gorgeous to wear for your big day. Consider using a metallic eyeshadow too, and add shimmering ribbons to your flower girls hair. Even your groom can get in on the metallic action with a tasteful metallic tie and boutonniere, and some classic cuff links!
Decorate your wedding ceremony and reception with vases and bottles (which can be easily DIY’d with some spray paint), sparkling streamers, bunting, and garlands. Even flowers can be used to your advantage—faux flowers come in all manner of colours, and the arts-and-crafts-savvy bride might even want to spray paint real flowers.
We love a pretty metallic wedding cake! Even when catering for your wedding you can be creative. Decorate your drinks glasses with edible sugar sprinkle your desserts with edible glitter!
