Today’s post is all about gold wedding decorations. Gold is becoming wildly popular in the world of weddings, and we’ve seen it appear more and more in the last few seasons. It’s a wonderfully versatile metallic that looks beautiful with a variety of different colours. You can use it as the main colour theme for your big day, or pair with colours such as mint or blush pink for a heavenly colour combination.
You can go down the vintage route, with splashes of antique gold throughout your wedding décor. Alternatively, you can create a theme with a modern edge. Take a look at our gorgeous ideas for gold wedding decorations to see how you can create a wedding with a touch of gold!
Ideas For Gold Wedding Decorations
Golden wedding vases brimming with beautiful blooms make beautiful table centrepieces, and are a relatively purse-friendly décor idea. Mix and match different size vases for extra impact.
If you’re planning an urban or city wedding, why not use gold terrariums full of succulents or cacti? This is a modern and contemporary style that brides are seriously loving at the moment. If you’ve got long trestle tables, you could line tall gilded candle holders along the table. Not only will this look stylish, it’ll create a lovely welcoming glow for your guests.
Golden plates and cutlery is perfect if you want to go all out with your golden theme. Simple white stationery with embossed golden calligraphy will look elegant as place settings, especially against gilt plates. Gold sequin table runners will add a subtle sparkle to your reception tables, without being too over the top.
I love the idea of hanging golden geometric vases around your wedding venue – they make truly fab gold wedding decorations. Fill with flowers or candles for something a little extra.
Vintage, gold frames are a relatively cheap and easy way of decorating your venue. Add a few to your wedding gift table with your favourite photographs, or use them to display your table numbers. They’re perfect gold wedding decorations if you want to add a vintage feel to your big day.
If you’ve got a blank canvas wedding venue that needs some TLC, why not decorate with gold and white ombré balloons? You could even try our gold balloons that spell out ‘LOVE’ or ‘MR & MRS’. Not only will your guests adore them, they’ll make perfect backdrops for your wedding photographs and can work wonderfully as props.
Even your wedding favours can work as gold wedding decorations. Display golden cupcakes or other edible treats on a gold painted tray. It’ll look seriously opulent, and makes those favours feel extra special. While we’re talking about yummy delights, a metallic iced wedding cake is simply made for a gold cake stand! It can be the focal point of your wedding reception, and will help your colour scheme come together beautifully.
Gold works beautifully as the main colour for a wedding theme, but small touches of gold here and there look just as fabulous. If you are adding another colour into the mix, it’s easy to include them together in your venue décor. Use your stationery, wedding cake and table centrepieces as a way to reflect your colour palette. This metallic hue isn’t going anywhere, and is the perfect way to create a luxe feel to your special day.
