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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
