Couples have been using metallic accents in their wedding styling for years and with a fantastic range of metals such as gold, silver and copper, each tone has a multitude of colour palettes that it can sit amongst and create striking definition.

Champagne Wedding Styling

2021 and 2022 will see soft metallic hues come to the forefront of wedding decor, in particular champagne. Positioned somewhere in between gold and silver on the colour spectrum, this metallic shade is incredibly effective at enhancing and highlighting nude, earthy, ivory shades.

High shine champagne mercury accessories for your table decor or shimmering champagne details within your wedding stationery, this is a look that is guaranteed to ooze opulence. Champagne also works fabulously with black tie weddings or events for a sophisticated finish against a monochrome base layer.

Gold and Green

A very adaptable metallic shade that works with a multitude of different colour palettes. In 2021 and 2022 we’ll see gold accessories being teamed with shades of green, in particular sage and the beautiful jewel tones of emerald green. Likewise gold accents will continue to be added to neutral wedding designs in order to lift and highlight the whole look.

Silver Styling – Winter Weddings

Often used at winter weddings, silver accessories look incredible with neutral colour palettes and also add a striking contrast to cooler shades in the colour spectrum such as dusty blue, grey or lilac tones.

Looking to create an opulent winter wedding? Consider using varying heights of silver candlesticks with taper candles and silver glass beaded charger plates to elevate your wedding table decor. Silver chrome storm lanterns are guaranteed to deliver romance when used at entrances or to define your aisle!

Copper/Rose Gold Styling

The warm tones of copper allow it to pair up perfectly with peach or pink styling. Back in 2018 and 2019 the wedding industry saw a boom in blush pink and rose gold wedding decor. However, as we move into 2021 this has evolved into the deeper rich tones of dusky pink, peach, burnt oranges and terracotta.

Going for a more rustic feel to your styling? Consider using matt copper details within your tealight holders, wedding stationery and cutlery which will sit alongside textured styling perfectly.
