Metallics for the win!

From the nail polish, to the shoes, down to the flowers – no details are spared when it comes to your special day. But all work and no play will make you a dull girl. So why not interject some fun into your plans? Instead of sweating the small stuff – and there is plenty of small stuff to sweat – try making a theme of it to keep plans streamlined, pretty, and most importantly… fun!

So what’s fun right now? Metallics! We’re seeing touches of metallic everywhere. From runways, nail fashion, and cake finishes, this trend is HOT and is just begging to be fused into your wedding details.

1) Metallic Nails
Mirrored metallic nails are stunning and show stopping. Shine bright like a diamond with this latest trend while complimenting your beaded and/or embellished dress. We really love this collection from Essie!

2) Cake Finishes
Metallic cake finishes are elegant, sleek, and brings just the right amount of fancy formal to your wonderful occasion. You can find shiny golds, shimmering silvers, and even bold colored metallics dressing wedding cakes right now. This trend is so beautiful, it’s almost too good to eat! Almost…

3) Tablescape
Adding metal details to your tablescape décor is a fantastic way to keep on theme and on trend! Try adding metallic votive holders to add shine to the table. Use metallic paper or ink for your guest’s name cards. Drape a crisp metallic table cloth or runner across the tables. These seemingly small touches are guaranteed to sparkle under your shimmery twinkle lights!

4) Formal Wear
Now, we’re not suggesting a gold lamé suit for the groom or anything, but how about a metallic handkerchief for his pocket square. Talk about dapper! For bridesmaids, sequined dresses are both sparkly and glamorous. Now, for the lady of the hour, metallic accessories are fabulous! Shiny earrings, hair combs, or brooches will round out your metallic look beautifully.

5) Favors
Let your guests take home a little shine of their own! Wrap up favors in metallic ribbon or packaging. Not only will they look fabulous alongside your other metallic décor, but guests will adore your attention to detail for years to come.
