Glorious gold weddings

According to Bourn Creative, “The color gold is cousin to the color yellow and the color brown, and is also associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic, and wisdom. Gold is a precious metal that is associated with wealth, grandeur, and prosperity, as well as sparkle, glitz, and glamour.”

Although you may be tempted to go overboard with gold, its inclusion in the decoration should be handled with care. The theme and style of the wedding are essential in determining if you can go bonkers with this color, or if you should reduce its use to just a few details.

A Gatsby theme, filled with glitz, glamour, and opulence translates well into white or black and gold weddings. The same applies to an ultra glam wedding. On the other hand, a shabby chic or a rustic wedding could benefit from a few accents in rose gold or peach blush gold, or a dab of gold against teal or green.
