Vintage Aqua and Gold Wedding Inspiration April 21, 2017
If you are searching for a wedding colour scheme that is classic and timeless but still unique then an antique gold and aqua palette could be the perfect choice for your big day. Vibrant aqua will be a bold and bright addition to your day and can then be muted down by mixing it with matte antique gold tones.

Set the style of your day with gorgeous aqua and gold wedding stationery. If you are having a summer wedding day then lead with the bright aqua shade with pretty gold accents. Or for something more vintage, try a lighter aqua tone and let the gold be your statement colour. Team your stationery with gold envelopes if you really want your stationery to stand out – your guests will love receiving these extra special deliveries in the post!
Who says your wedding dress has to be white? You can still feel beautifully bridal in a colourful wedding dress. An elaborate gold gown will really stand out and could be perfect for a sumptuous autumn or winter wedding. For spring and summer – bold brides might want to consider a fresh aqua shade. If you’re concerned about not feeling as bridal as you would in a white gown then ensure your gown has plenty of volume and statement style.
If a gold or aqua wedding dress is just a little too bold for you then let your footwear do the talking - a flash of turquoise or a glimmer or gold under your wedding dress will be stunning and your wedding photographer will be sure to capture some gorgeous photos of your statement shoes. Instead of going for white or ivory shoes which could feel very bridal, these statement colours will mean you have gorgeous wedding shoes you can wear again and again.
