Shiny (untarnished) Precious Gold

If you've been following our work, you'll probably have seen some of our rustic styling. Many of brides that we meet lean towards this look, and request rustic touches like hessian, wood, vintage jars and bottles, handmade signage, etc.  We love things that look a little worn, are a little tarnished, and have a lot of character - and it seems many brides do too.

As much as we love our rustic collection, there are many other styles that we adore equally, so we thought that over our next few blog posts we'd share some of these. We want to provide some inspiration, some of our ideas of the upcoming trends in colour and style. 

Today, we're starting with Gold. Not tarnished rustic vintage gold that you might have seen us play around with. Nope, here's some bright shiny sparkle to brighten your day! 

Sparkly dresses -
These work for both the bride AND the bridesmaids. Best for an evening event, some sequins or sparkles will add a touch of glam to your event. And you're sure to glow throughout the night!

Gold Cakes -
One of our favourite trends is gold cakes. Even if you aren't using much 'metal' in your day, a shining cake is enough to add a real pop of bling!

Invitations - 
Printing in metallic is not easy, so don't try this at home kids! That said, when done well, it looks swell!

Add some sine to your tables by displaying flowers in metallic vessels. Vintage vases, or even spray painted tin cans. You could also consider a sparkly table runner.
