I know what you’re thinking – silver and gold leaf belongs in the winter for holiday weddings. Well, I’m taking them back! I wanted to use a mixed metallic palette to create a raw, rustic wedding with a chilly elegance. The mix of gold and silver is more expected for a New Year’s Eve wedding, but a blend of matte metallics with rough, natural textures creates something more organic and less glam. Start with yards and yards of filmy gray chiffon and silvered wood to create a rich, textured background, and layer on the gold details. Play off the dull gleam of foiled gold with twinkling silver beading, the pure crystal glitter of diamonds, or silver brushed branches to add some woodsy touches.
