Combining glamour with romance, you can easily incorporate subtle details into your jewellery, bridal outfit and wedding décor. It looks utterly beautiful when paired with soft blush and pink shades, but will also look fab with industrial inspired elements for a warehouse wedding."

The Wedding Outfit

You have a number of options when it comes to featuring your rose gold wedding theme in your aisle style. You could go all out and wear a dazzling, glitzy rose gold gown if you’re feeling brave! However, if you want to wear a traditional wedding dress, the best way to reflect your theme is through your accessories and even your make-up. Delicate rose gold jewellery will complement your look beautifully – sequins and sparkles work perfectly with this theme, so you can get away with wearing very glittery jewellery without looking too OTT.  Silver Sixpence in her Shoe have a huge array of beautiful rose gold themed jewellery that will add a subtle touch of colour to your wedding outfit. From bohemian inspired hair vines to vintage headbands, there is a stunning selection to choose from. We particularly adore the Florrie headband. Pretty rose gold shoes in soft shades of pink will give a subtle nod to your wedding theme. If you’re planning to dance the night away, opt for some pretty blush pink pumps for the evening reception so you can look classy while being comfortable!

The Bridesmaids

Happily, rose gold is an ultra flattering colour that suits the majority of skin tones. Dressing your best girls in different shades of rose gold or embellished gowns will look beautiful. Why not consider different metallic colours if you want to go for a fab mix and match style? If you want to really add to the glitz and glamour of your special day, vintage style headpieces will look fabulous. If you’d rather head down the soft pink route, add a touch of light sparkle with rose gold hair combs or clutch bags. The Olivia Leaf Beaded Hair Pins from Silver Sixpence in her Shoe in rose gold are a fab addition to any bridesmaids’ look! Made up of seed pearls and lace motifs, the hair pins are beautifully delicate and your girls will look lovely.

The Table Décor

It is definitely worth investing in (or even hiring) rose gold sequin table runners for your table décor, as they are a great way of adding a touch of metallic to your wedding reception. If you wanted to use white as a base colour for your table, accessorise with rose gold cutlery, vases and candle holders for an ultra chic look. Small tea lights are relatively purse-friendly and will also create a warm, romantic glow for your guests. Pale pink peonies are the perfect addition to your table centerpieces (and for your wedding bouquet), as they complement the rose gold colour combination perfectly.

The Wedding Cake

You can get really creative with your wedding cake, as there are so many beautiful designs out there. Why not keep it simple with a white iced cake and a golden cake topper, or you could make a statement with a metallic iced show-stopper! Metallic-inspired wedding cakes can look spectacular and really contribute to your wedding theme. Your wedding cake maker will be able to create a bespoke design that’s perfect for your big day. Present your wedding cake on a sequin table runner and it’s guaranteed to give the ‘wow’ factor.

Sending out sparkling wedding invitations will get your guests talking and will definitely put a glamorous picture in their minds.
