When it comes to choosing which metallic colour to use within your wedding palette, silvers and platinums seem to have fallen out of favour. Copper and pink gold were huge this year and as much as we love them, we’re looking forward to seeing more icy tones in 2017. We love the cool and elegant sparkle of silver just as much as it’s metallic cousins, so today we’re bringing you some inspiration for how to incorporate this shiny shade into your big day. From your decor to your cake, from your make up to your jewellery, you’ll never regret going platinum…
We’ve had several Brides embrace a metallic gown and OH MY GOODNESS they looked beautiful. Each one stands out in my mind – see here and here. It’s definitely a sure fire way to make a statement on your wedding day. If you feel like a white/ivory gown isn’t for you, then why not try something sequinned on? We promise you won’t regret it and you’ll never feel more like a real-life mermaid 😉
If you’re more of a traditional girl then may we suggest putting your maids in silver sparkling gowns? It’s a trend for Bridesmaids that we absolutely love and is certain to add a touch of texture and sparkle to your wedding day. Have a look at Emily & Ross’ wedding and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
We love that Brides are making more bold choices with their make up looks – it’s commonplace now to see a smoky eye, a bold lip colour or a set of brightly coloured nails. When it comes to metallic beauty products, the world really is your oyster. Check out our sister blog, Rock My Style, for their round up of this year’s best products. Perfect for party season too.
Silver hued decor is the perfect way to create an elegant look – paired with matte grey tones, washed out blues and lots of candle light, it’s an ambiance that’s both refreshing and inviting. These tones can feel cold, so adding warmth with flickering flames really brings your colour palette alive. Use white flowers and foliage to keep the look from becoming cluttered. Opt for silver mercury tea lights, tall candelabras with long skinny candles and classic linen.
A sparkling colour palette calls for bold jewellery and we’ve fallen hard for the De Beers Aura Cushion Cut Solitaire Ring. You could lose yourself in that diamond – it’s simply exquisite. Paired with the De Beers Aura Band in White Gold, it’s a combination made in heaven. The collection of tiny diamonds combined with the silver detail of the fittings make the Aura collection the perfect accompaniment to a metallic colour palette by enhancing rather than overshadowing the rest of your bridal look.
But if you’re looking for something even more striking, the Infinity Heart ring from De Beers will take your breathe away. Cleverly designed so that from the side, a beautiful heart shape can be seen, it’s a masterpiece in diamond crafting. This statement ring just needs to be paired with a simple set of solitaire diamond studs to exude sparkle.
