Rose gold has been around since the 19th century where it was known as “Russian gold”. However, the copper-gold mix has been growing as a trend since 2016. The rose gold wedding trend has been growing in popularity too – especially as it looks so incredible on Instagram! If you want to rock this trend without breaking the bank, here are our top tips and top picks!
For anyone looking to get creative, little additions can add the perfect amount of rose gold without the cost. Place cards can be expensive, so why not make your own out of some rose gold card, or coloured pens? Plus you could use the materials for the invitations. You could also chop up handmade rose gold confetti, or use tissue paper and ribbon to add to the table decorations. To finish off, how about purchasing some rose gold ribbons and tying them to the chairs?
The finishing touches of an outfit can bring it all together. If you’re looking for a way to add a little blush of rose gold to the big day, but aren’t sure where to start then you could think about coloured jewellery. You could even go one step further and have the groom’s tie or buttonhole flower to match the theme. The best bit is these don’t have to stretch the budget too far. Many items of jewellery and ties can be found in high street stores.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen are a brilliant way to add a dash of colour, so why not incorporate some rose gold there? The dresses could add the pinch of colour you’re searching for. If you’re worried that an entire gown may be too much, alternatively you could get the groomsmen involved with their ties. To make the day a bit more unique, you could even think about giving them some coloured socks or shoelaces that you could dye yourself instead!
Guest books are the perfect way to hold all the precious wishes of family and friends. Here you could look at investing in a rose gold version of the favourite tradition. If they are looking out of budget then have no fear, a little DIY can go a long way. Rose gold pens are available in many stationery stores and offer the ideal alternative. Simply purchase a scrapbook of your choice and get creative with the pens – voila! You could also buy some extra pens for your guests to use too.
Ah, the cake. One of the feature pieces of any wedding! Why not ask about adding in some rose icing, or dusting the top with some delicate coloured glitter? Also, a lot of couples now opt for cupcakes to go alongside the main cake, or as an alternative. These can add the blush you’re looking for with some inexpensive cake cases, or rose gold decorations. Plus you can save on the budget and bake them all yourself!
Whether you opt for a grand display of rose gold or some finishing touches that add in colour, there are many ways you can get your rose gold wedding fix without having to spend too much. Plus, you could even have the fun of making some of the additions yourself – bonus.
