Metallic Accent Details

metallic accent piecesMetallic accent pieces in wedding decor have been growing in popularity year after year because they add glamor, shimmer, and a bit of shine to your special day. The versatility of metallics allows you to use your imagination, adding just the right amount of sophistication, elegance or rustic charm to your decor; while ribbons and rhinestones will elevate your bouquets. Whatever your style, there is a metallic accent perfect for the look.

Metallic accents can take many forms throughout the course of your wedding day – from bridal bouquets with antique brooch details or metallic handles, to tablecloths that glimmer under candlelight. Lavish floral arrangements can be exhibited in traditional silver vases or atop vintage gold candelabras, while mixed metals across your venue are also gaining in popularity. When choosing the vessels for your flowers, consider that gold is often used as a background for warm tones such as cream, yellow, deep red and magenta; while silver looks positively elegant with white, blue, purple, and coral.  Spraypainting leaves and greenery with metallic tones can also add a touch of unexpected beauty in your arrangements.


Metallic filigree accents can be used to embellish invitations, place cards, and menus. Picture frames, lanterns, and mirrors in antique-look metallics give off a classic vintage ambiance, and metallic dishes, goblets, and lighting fixtures finish off the look.  Many contemporary brides have chosen mismatched metallic accent pieces such as  birdcages, water pitchers or lanterns for their centerpieces, browsing thrift and second-hand stores looking for interesting and beautiful items.
