All that glitters... Gold Glitter Wedding Decorating Ideas
I might be getting the exact wording wrong, but I do believe it was ancient Greek philosopher Socrates who first said, "Hey girrl, just add gold glitter and anything becomes a party. Trust me. I'm Socrates."
Socrates was rarely wrong about anything, so it's safe to follow his sage advice and incorporate gold sparkles into your wedding aesthetic. As with everything in life though, moderation is key. Rather than renting a helicopter and dumping a metric ton of glitter onto your wedding from above, a few judicious touches here and there are all you need. Take what you need from our suggestions.
It all starts with the wedding invitations. Gold gel ink on pristine white card neatly straddles the line between glamour and sophistication, so add the Midas touch to your guests' names. Avoid overly frilly fonts, as the metallic sparkle is enough.
Once your guests are at their tables, dazzle them with a balanced combination of golden touches for your gold wedding decorations. A gold place card holder or gold organza table runner here, perhaps some gold heart table scatters there. For a showstopper piece, try the Manzanita Gold Tree Centrepiece, a stunning 75cm tall miniature tree adorned with crystals.
The Golden Renaissance Glass Candle Holder makes a great table decoration or wedding bomboniere. Just pop a tea light candle in to create a warm golden glow. Personalised gold glitter hand fans make elegant accessories, as well as being a practical way of beating the heat. Similarly, shade your bridesmaids with gold paper parasols, which add instant elegance and whimsy.
A clever twist is to offer sparklers as party favours. Of course, all due safety precautions should be taken, and it's probably best for outdoor weddings. The glow they create are absolutely gorgeous and make for striking photos.
Leave your guests something sweet to take home with them; some gold chocolate hearts would be well received. Offer them in metallic gold bomboniere bags with nifty drawstring openings. For added impact, pop them into a Gold Bomboniere Wedding Favour Box with Heart Cutout. These look amazing as well as preventing the delicious treats from being squashed.
Create a stunning photo opportunity for the bride, groom, the wedding party and all of the guests with a gold metallic curtain backdrop. They'll add a welcome sense of drama as the background to your collection of photos.
As a final touch, eschew rice or paper confetti, and go for glamorous gold stars. These are perfect for sending the bride and groom off. Think about it, would you rather find gold stars or rice in your cleavage later?
So go on, add the Midas Touch to your wedding. It's what Socrates would've wanted.
