Metallic weddings first hit the scene back in 2016, but this chic trend is set to stay firmly in the spotlight for 2018, and it seems couples can’t get enough of copper wedding styling. This stylish metallic shade suits any season and wedding theme, whether you want to give it a feminine, industrial or even botanical edge. So, if you want copper to take centre stage at your big day, find out how you can style it for your celebrations…
Copper Wedding Stationery
We’ll kick-start your copper wedding styling with your stationery. Often overlooked as part of your wedding décor, stationery can have a huge impact on your overall styling. You can use copper stationery as signage to direct your guests around your venue, as a stylish seating plan, or simply to create a ‘brand’ for your big day. I suggest going all out by using thick, good quality card for your invitations, with embossed copper foil for added luxury.
Copper Wedding Cake
Your wedding cake table can also be a focal point of your wedding reception, so make it a statement! Metallic cakes have been a huge hit in the world of weddings, and they are the perfect alternative to traditional designs. If you want a simple wedding cake, display it on a copper cake stand or source a modern copper cake topper. On the other hand, you could ask your cake maker to decorate it with delicious copper icing or specks of metallic.
Copper Wedding Décor
Now let’s talk about your wedding décor; but where to start?! Couples are seriously spoilt when it comes to wedding decorations, details and props these days, so you have no excuse but to get creative with your copper wedding styling.
I suggest using a variety of copper terrariums full of succulents, cacti or your favourite flowers. You can use them as part of your table centrepieces or to decorate your card and gift table.
I also love the idea of using lots of candle sticks, tea lights and lanterns to give your wedding venue a metallic glow. They’re a great choice if you have a blank canvas venue with lots of space to fill.
Make your dance floor area stand out by decorating it with statement copper letters and I guarantee your guests will be dancing all night long!
Copper Wedding Table Styling
When it comes to wedding table styling, I suggest swapping traditional wine glasses for modern copper mugs.
Instead of standard cutlery, why not use copper cutlery? If you want just a subtle hint of copper at your wedding place settings, use copper charger plates.
Want to go all out with your copper wedding styling? A sequin copper table runner will add just the right amount of glitz and glamour to your reception.
Copper wedding styling is the perfect match for style-conscious couples who want to make a modern statement on their big day.
