If you want to add glamour to your wedding … some dazzle … something special … consider adding gold! I have to admit that gold may not work for all scenarios. For example, gold might not be the best choice for an outdoor wedding in the middle of the summer. The reason for this opinion is that gold is such a warm color and it will only make the hot day seem hotter!
I have found five wedding colors that pair really well with gold. There are many others that also work, but for this post, I’ll start with these five.
- White and Gold
- Black and Gold
- Purple and Gold
- Pink and Gold
- Mint and Gold
White and Gold Wedding Colors – If you want a neutral palette and don’t want to use all white (or ivory) then consider adding gold. This is an easy palette to work with and it can create a refined and elegant look for your wedding and reception. This combination can work especially well if your wedding is in the winter. There is just something about the warm glow of gold on a cold evening that is especially appealing.
Black and Gold Wedding Colors – A black and gold combination is dramatic and dressy. Even though I am calling it “black and gold” you will surely want to add white to break up the two colors, as shown in the collage below.
