So let’s talk about the most important outfit of the day: the bridal look. We’ll start with your wedding make-up, as gold is a beautiful colour to focus on. Opt for shimmering champagne tones for your eyeshadow – work in a dark brown into the outer edges of your eyelid for a sexy smoky-eye. Golden tinted highlighter will create a dewy glow to your face so use it on your cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow. Finish the look off with a touch of rose gold lipstick. Gorgeous!

We’ll move onto your wedding outfit. Golden wedding dresses are seriously hot right now, but if you’re not bold enough to don a sparkling dress why not incorporate your theme through your accessories? Glittering gold shoes will look so glam peeping out from under your dress, and the shade means you can wear them after your big day too! Why not pop on a golden sequin jacket in the evening too? If you’re having a Winter celebration, you’ll need it as the evening draws in. Our Sienna Rose Gold Headband is the perfect partner for this wedding theme. With a beautiful rose gold centre and lace flowers, this can be worn across the forehead or as an Alice band.

Don’t forget about your wedding garter – it’s one of the oldest wedding traditions out there. Our Margaux wedding garter is finished with a rose gold leaf and bead, and it’s the perfect way to bring good luck to your wedding day.

Let’s not overlook your bridesmaids – their dresses are probably one of the easiest ways to reflect your luxurious gold colour palette. Matching dresses are officially off the wedding scene, so focus on mixing and matching gowns and shades. Long, sequin gowns are seriously glamorous and they will look wonderful at a Winter wedding.

Metallic wedding cakes are huge for 2017, especially when it comes to golden icing. A gold cake can easily be a focal point of your reception, so go all out with your theme and use a gold cake stand and sparkling sequin table runner to display your tasty treats! Add a festive touch by decorating your cake with Winter blooms or a Christmas cake topper.

There are so many ways to include golden details into your wedding décor that we could swoon over ideas forever. Golden tea light holders and vases are an absolute must-have and can be used for your reception tables, venue entrance or even your card table. Why not use antique golden frames to display your table numbers and seating plan? They’ll look so glam and can make even the simplest of venues look sensational. Geometrics go hand in hand with metallic and they’re super on trend. You could hang geometric installations or use geometric vases for your candles and flowers.

Make sure your wedding stationery is just as glam as your venue décor! Golden envelopes teamed with white invitations and golden calligraphy will help create your colour palette. Add a sprig of greenery around your menus or place names for a cosy, festive touch.

A gold wedding theme will never go out of fashion and it’s a beautiful choice if you want a wedding day that your guests will never forget.

Our Charlotte Lace and Leaf Lucky Horseshoe

November 08 2016

" Today we are introducing Charlotte, this season's best selling Lucky Wedding Horseshoe for us. "

As with all our horseshoe's Charlotte is a reconditioned real horseshoe (yes we do painstakingly scrub these with our own fair hands!) So straight away you have your something old sorted. 

Tradition states that the page boy in the bridal party gives this to the bride as a gift to carry with her bouquet on the big day. Another lovely idea is to hang this in your room on the day to bring you luck when getting ready.

 

Charlotte is also perfect as your Something Blue as she is finished on a baby blue ribbon tie. Keeping with the trends for leafy botanicals this season, the handmade motif is crafted from leafy lace pieces and a creamy rose bead and as it is in traditional ivory it works with all wedding themes. 

 

 

So all that is missing now is your something borrowed...and of course this piece can be passed down the generations for future use making it a lovely heirloom piece.

Charlotte is perfect to co-ordinate with our Charlotte garter  and our Charlotte hairpins 

 

So don't delay- browse our wedding horseshoes today and keep with a wondeful tradition. All priced at £30 with free delivery
