Dusky Blue and Antique Gold Wedding Ideas
Autumn is a magical time of year to get married filled with bright sunshine (hopefully!) and crisp days. If you love the idea of an autumn wedding day then don’t feel like you have to stick to traditional rustic tones like chocolate brown and burnt orange. Dusky blue and antique gold wedding ideas can be a fresh and unique take on a cool autumn colour scheme.

Embrace your colour scheme by sending out dusky blue and gold wedding invitations. Your guests will love receiving a stylish blue envelope with beautiful gold calligraphy on the front. If you want to really add some extra glitz to your wedding stationery then you could line your envelopes with glitter paper as a sparkly surprise as your guests open their invitations.
2017 weddings are all about breaking the rules so your wedding dress doesn’t have to be white. A dusky blue wedding dress will be something completely unique and will surprise your guests. If a blue wedding dress just feels a little too bold for you then a gold wedding dress will give you that traditional bridal style you are looking for with just a subtle hue of colour.
If you would prefer to wear a white wedding dress then why not experiment with your footwear? Gold wedding shoes will add a touch of glamour to your bridal look and will shimmer and sparkle as you walk down the aisle. You can also make sure your wedding photographers takes some stunning pictures of your wedding shoes that you can treasure forever.
Once you have your wedding dress chosen, start to think about your wedding accessories. Boho brides might want to team their laid back look with a floral tiara. Or for something a bit more glitzy, a diamante comb, such as Glitzy Secrets’ Bouquet of Gold Hair Comb, can add shimmer and sparkle to your wedding hairstyle.

After adding some antique gold to your bridal look, balance this out with gorgeous bridesmaid gowns in a muted shade of blue. Blue is such a versatile shade and will look good on your bridesmaids no matter what their skin tone or hair colour.
It’s not just the girls who can embrace this dusky shade – your groom could be your something blue by wearing blue wedding shoes and accessories or even have the groom and his party wearing subtle blue buttonholes.
What could set off your whole look better than a pretty blue bridal bouquet? You may find blooms such as lavender easier to source in the autumn months and add a flash of gold by asking your florist to bind the bouquets in matte gold ribbon.
You can then wow your wedding guests even further by carrying your colour scheme into your wedding reception – blue table cloths and gold charger plates will perfectly set the scheme for your autumn wedding day.
Your wedding cake will be a big focal part of your evening reception so work with your cake maker to really embrace your colour scheme and make sure your beautiful blue wedding cake has just enough gold detailing.
