Copper Wedding Detail Inspiration

Have you heard? Copper is a smokin’ trend for weddings right now! Think outside the box by adding copper details into your bouquet to add rich tones and elegance. When sending out invitations, give them a pop of color with copper envelope inserts for a lovely surprise! An alternative to the common flower girl basket is a copper basket filled to the brim with flowers. This unique idea will set you apart from all the other brides saying I do. Amplify your cocktail hour by serving Moscow Mules in a signature copper mug to add some class! If you’re looking for subtle touches of copper with a bold statement, consider using copper chairs for your ceremony or reception. A copper cake with a burst of color is just what you’ll need for your perfect copper shindig! Don’t hesitate to add this beautiful metal shine into your grand wedding day.

Say I do in a Colorful Wedding Dress

Are you looking to make a unconventional statement on your wedding day? Wearing a colorful wedding dress will do just that! If you’re wanting to stand out amongst the crowd of your lovely guests wear a color for your wedding dress that shows your personality. You can even make it an all white affair for your guests while you stand out-being the only one to rock a bright color choice. If you’re wanting a rustic chic look consider a yellow wedding dress that brightens your wedding glow even more! Still wanting to walk down the aisle in white but want something unique? Consider having a color or pattern underneath your dress to incorporate your bold personality and add flair but still keep tradition. Marsala colored weddings are this years top trend, having a wedding dress in this romantic color will be an unfortgettable choice, especially if you’re having a royal wedding theme. If you love blush, why not wear it on your wedding day? It isn’t too far from the traditional white dress, but it adds a sweet and soft touch to looking flawless while walking down the aisle. Wow your spouse-to-be with the daring but gorgeous choice of a textured dress with embroidered flowers or other patterns to choose from. Make your childhood dreams come true by wearing a Cinderella blue dress for your wedding, it will be stunning! Bring back the roaring 20’s with a breathtaking sequins dress that will get the party started! Go bold with an eye popping orange wedding dress that will attract all the attention and will compliment a beachy wedding venue. Are you a sparkle kind of gal? Shine bright with a gold sparkle wedding dress that will make you feel gorgeous from head to toe. If you’re looking for a subtle look, but equally captivating as the bold color palette wear a beige wedding dress that will be dreamy and a sight for sore eyes. Follow your own path on your journey to love by staying true to yourself.  Wear any color or shade that fits you and your vision of saying I do!
