Well before stacking rings were on trend, Audrey Hepburn wore interchangeable rose, white and yellow gold wedding bands in the 1960s. Steal her style by wearing an ombre dress that echoes different tones of precious metal. Alternatively, focus on the rose colour itself and chose an embellished dress in soft shades of pink. Sequins and sparkles work well with this theme so save money by choosing a sleek evening gown rather than paying twice the price for a wedding dress. If you've got your heart set on a princess style gown, wear underskirts with sequin details and choose a bodice with subtle embellishment that cascades down the skirt.
If a sequin covered dress sounds too extravagant for your tastes, introduce rose gold heels for a subtle and sophisticated bridal look. Bridal favourites like Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik have hundreds of rose gold options to choose from or head to the high-street for affordable alternatives and hit the dancefloor in style. Planning to dance all night? Think about bringing a pair of rose gold pumps or sandals for the evening reception so you can swish around in comfort.
Flattering to every skin tone, rose gold is the perfect choice for your best girls. Dressing them in shades of rose gold or complimentary metallics will suit each girl’s individual style and allow them to choose gowns they can wear to future events. Having an Art Deco themed wedding? Find a collection of rose gold sequined dresses for your maids and accessorise with crystal headpieces for gorgeous Gatsby glamour. If you’re searching for something more subtle, sway towards the pink end of the theme with tea length rose toned dresses and add light sparkle with rose gold accessories or bags.

Table runners are the quickest and easiest way to add maximum rose gold impact to your reception décor. Centre a long sequinned runner on each table over a crisp white linen table cloth to add instant glamour to your place settings. If you’re looking to create a visual feast without breaking the budget, pop down to your local craft store and buy a basket full of rose gold tea-light holders. Scatter them around your tables with some pretty tea-lights to create a soft romantic glow.
Rose gold chevrons look fun and oh-so-tasty iced around a simple white or ivory cake. Why not wrap your cake with rose gold ribbon or ask your cake designer to dip chocolate chips in metallic food colouring for a cascading effect. For a show stopping display that will get guests talking, request custom made metallic icing and decorate the tiers with shards of white chocolate or white royal icing for a sleek and sophisticated cake design that’s completely unique to you.
