Your Wedding Color – Pair With a Metallic for Stunning Shine

If you want to add something “extra” to your wedding color palette, consider adding a metallic color such as gold, silver or copper. Metallic colors work especially well in winter months and in evening weddings. However, if you were to use a metallic color outdoors on a hot, sunny day, you would have reflections off the metal and it would just add to the intensity of the heat.

Tip: The time of day for the wedding, season and venue need to be considered when choosing your wedding colors.

Pink and Gold Wedding & Pink and Silver Wedding – If you want to add sophistication to pink, consider adding a metallic. Pink can come off as a girly color that may not appeal to your groom; but if you add silver or gold to it, it takes it to a new level, as you can see in the two collages below.

Purple and Gold Wedding & Purple and Silver Wedding – Purple is a popular wedding color that looks gorgeous when paired with a metallic. Purple already is associated with royalty and when paired with gold, it has an especially regal look. When paired with silver, it looks very fresh and modern.

Mint and Gold Wedding – Mint is a luscious color and it is often paired with soft pink or powder blue. But when you put mint and gold together you have a combination that is unexpected and sophisticated.

Royal Blue and Silver Wedding – Royal Blue is a color that has universal appeal and one that your groom is likely to feel comfortable with. When you add silver with royal blue, you have a combination that works beautifully … especially for a winter wedding.

Teal and Copper Wedding – There was a time when the only metallics we saw in weddings were gold and silver but now copper has become quite popular. However, I think copper can be a little more challenging to work with because it is not as easy to find accessories that are made of copper or are copper colored. Copper can add a fresh look to your wedding colors, though, and may be worth a try!

      Hi Sharon, I looked all over the web and Pinterest trying to find the full dress but that photo seems to be “the one” that is out there. If I find it I will definitely let you know. Thank you so much and best wishes!

      Hi Chiquita, I don’t have info on where the dress came from. I did find a website that has photos from the wedding along with a large photo of the dress. I was hoping that the dress vendor would be listed at the bottom of the wedding story but unfortunately they didn’t include it. Here is a link to the wedding.

      Best wishes!
