The popularity of metallic accents in wedding decor is on the rise, and couples are discovering a wide range of options available to them when planning their big day. Metallics offer so much versatility that they can be used with any color palette, any style of flower and any wedding theme – adding shine, and shimmer and elegance. When looking for the best Wilmington area bridal flowers and reception decor, your choice should be Boyd’s Flowers. And when looking for a creative way to bring your own style and personality into the ambiance, look to metallic accents.
Create a nostalgic and sophisticated centerpiece display with a tall golden vase, small gold candles, and a vintage picture frame which perfectly sets off a lavish bouquet of flowers. Add golden napkin rings, menu cards with gold calligraphy, golden goblets or even metallic gold chairs to complete the look. This warm tone looks amazing with yellows, creams, and pastels. By contrast, brushed silver elements combine beautifully with blues and purples, and exude a cool and elegant contemporary ambiance. For a more eclectic look, shop thrift stores and garage sales for unique containers for your centerpieces – birdcages, lanterns, pitchers, and candle holders can be used to design creative and striking florals.
Often, the right metallics to choose are evident based upon the venue and style of wedding. Although many think of metallic accents as being classic and traditional, metal details can also be whimsical, edgy and completely unexpected. One of our favorite weddings was the bold and completely unique “steampunk” wedding. The bride and groom infused their fun and colorful personalities into their florals and decor design. This corsage is a great example of how metallic accents can be utilized in a wide variety of ways – alstroemeria is decorated with a black, gold-flecked ribbon and unusual metal charms.
