Rock those Metallics

Metallics have proven themselves to be huge in weddings this year, they can be versatile in how they're used and many couples have opted to have them as a part of their celebrations. From the cake to the accessories, we have put together a list of the different ways they can be used in your dream winter wedding.

The cake
Your wedding cake symbolises your love for your partner. It's also one of the things guests are most excited to see and so you want it to look exciting and definitely unique. If you don't want to spend a fortune having your cake laced in liquid gold, put some edible flowers or berries on it and have them sprayed in edible gold and silver paint. It will look fantastic and your guests will be very pleased.  

Stationary
Have metallics play a part in your wedding stationary, from your invites to your guest book you could have matching gold monograms as a symbol of your big day. It adds a touch of elegance and it makes it look as though you spent a fortune. A classic gold pen or silver earrings would also work a treat as a gift for the groomsmen (Bridesmen) and bridesmaids (groomswomen), sticking with the theme of metallics.  

Venue décor
Decorate your venue with metallics from centrepieces to floral arrangements. Silver is partcularly good for winter weddings as it adds a nice contrast to the deep colours associated with winter weddings. Metallics also go really well with most colour schemes especially Christmas colours; red and green go with gold and silver very well.  

Wedding party
Make your bridesmaids or groomswomen shimmer in gold sequin dresses or your groomsmen or bridesmen shine in silver ties. This is clearly the easiest way to incorporate metallics into your big day. You could even have your hairstylist put matching gold or silver hair accessories in your bridesmaid’s hair or have them wear matching jewellery to make the trend pop.  

Drinks
You could have a signature drink topped with edible gold or silver glitter at your drinks reception, it looks super cool and having a signature drink is a major trend for 2017. Your guests will love the pop of colour, you could even opt for colourful metallic glitter in any one of your main wedding colours.
