5 Ways to Incorporate Gold in Your Wedding

Gold is all the rage for weddings right now, but if your confused about how to incorporate it on your big day, here are five ways to have a gorgeous, gold wedding.

1. Shoes

Although many brides opt for classic white or even blue shoes (for the’something blue’), gold wedding shoes can add a touch of glamour without overdoing it. For brides who find too much gold overbearing and gaudy, but still want the sparkle, this is a great option.


2. Bridesmaids’ Dresses

For attire all your bridesmaids will love and look great in, choose gold dresses. They can be sparkly, muted, or even different shades, and the best part about gold dresses (besides the fact that your bridesmaids will actually want to wear them again!) is that they look great in pictures.


3. Invitations

For eye-catching invites that will make your guests feel glamorous just looking at them, use gold card stock or lettering, or decorate your invitations with a gold ribbon or envelope. It’s sure to get your guests excited about your big day!


4. Your Wedding Gown

If you want to sparkle every step of your walk down the aisle, look for gold when buying your wedding gown. You can add gold details, such as a glimmery belt or gold sequins, or for the bride who wants to shine all night long, go all out with a completely gold gown!


5. Decor

This is for the bride who really loves the gold wedding trend. If you want every part of your wedding to shimmer, use gold decorations in the ceremony and the reception. For the first half of your wedding, walk down a gold aisle runner or say your vowels in front of a glamorous gold backdrop. Then serve dinner and dessert on gold plates and table cloths and give guests something beautiful to look at with gold centerpieces.


Friday Five: Innovative Save the Dates

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you are having a great day! As we all know, one of the first things you send out to announce your wedding is your Save the Dates. They let your guest know what day they need to keep open so they can go to the all important event: your wedding. So here are five super cute and inventive ways to tell your friends and family to save the date!


#1 Using a Picture to Announce the Date in a Creative Way

If you or your guy has a special sport that you both enjoy, why not use some jerseys to announce the date. I think that this is a great way to take an adorable picture and use the picture to announce the date. Not a sports fan? You and your fiancé can jump onto the chalkboard trend and hold chalkboards (or posters) up that announce your date. Or you can find cute numbers at your local craft store to hold up. The possibilities are endless!

#2 Save the Date Scratch Offs

Almost everyone loves to do scratch offs and your guests are no exception. They will love the fun that your save the dates provide and will be sure to tell you what a great idea they were!

#3 Chalk Photo Save the Dates

Chalk and chalkboards have been a very big trend lately. I love the idea of taking a photograph of the happy couple laying on top of a chalk drawing. Not to mention, it’s completely adorable!
