A heavy metal wedding, for some, might spell a walk down the aisle to Black Sabbath or Motley Crue! Here at All The Buzz, we had something a little more “classical” in mind: Nuptials with hints of gorgeous gold and shimmery silver.
These precious metals are all around us, but with so much emphasis on spring pastels and rich primary colors in the cooler months, the timeless appeal of these naturally refined tones is often overlooked. Both are multi-seasonal and versatile: Paired with white or cream, gold can transition from ultra-modern to romantic, while silver, paired with the right palette, can transition from cool and sleek to whimsical with ease.
And the best part: There’s absolutely nobody and nothing that doesn’t get an automatic shot of elegance when decked in a touch of gold or silver! We don’t suggest you go breaking into Ft. Knox for your wedding – but there are lots of practical and easy ways you can incorporate gold and silver tones to make your ceremony a 24k affair!
- On the table:
A solid-gold table is not in order! Rather, think small, subtle touches that carry the precious metal theme but stay in line with their refined beauty. Think gold-flecked stemware like the Vento Collection by Sorelli Home, an irridescent blend of gold and ivory sure to be a sparkling complement to your champagne. Flatware offers another “golden” opportunity: Marchesa makes gorgeous gold-plated place settings. Incorporate napkin rings, chargers and even a 24k gold-plated cake server like this one by L’Objet to add a little shine to your dining experience.
If silver is more your pleasure, get creative with silver chargers, napkin rings or even table linens, like these gorgeous silk organza napkins.
- On the scene:
From ribbons to gold-monogrammed aisle runners, there’s plenty of sparkling fun to be had incorporating gold and silver into the ceremony! Consider little things, like gold-tinted ring pillows, gold unity candles or even handfuls of fresh flowers in warm gold tones.
Silver, meanwhile, is an ideal tone for flattering bridesmaids dresses. Add a little silver class to your groomsmen’s boutonnieres to complete the theme.
- On the bride:
We saved the best for last! There are countless ways to add gold or silver as a central part of your bridal look. We absolutely love these shimmering silver Jimmy Choos – you’ll gleam your way down the aisle!
It’s easy enough to find gorgeous gold and silver jewelry, but why not be daring? This Ian Stuart gown draped in lightly tinted gold tulle makes the bride the golden center of attention!
Whether you choose silver or gold, incorporating these classic metals in your wedding or special event will transform it into a Sterling affair in no time!
As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time. – John Mason
