Gold and Copper Foil letterpress Invitations have been popular this year. With metallic tones of taking centre stage in wedding stationery design and reception styling, here are some ideas to help you continue the colour theme through to the reception styling on your special day. From bronze cutlery to Copper Wire Chairs, handpainted gold painted leaves and geometric copper centrepieces, find out what’s been hot with our brides in 2016!
1. Reception Stationery
Bring in some Bronze typography and detail to your menus, placecards and table numbers. Letterpress and Foil are beautiful ideas, however digitally printed metallic gold or bronze ink is a much more cost effective option. We can digitally print individual guest names onto the top of menus too!
Or opt for simple placecards and menus, but what about those hand painted gold leaves from Anita and Nathan’s recent wedding! Totally loving their reception styling right now, great idea for an Autumn / Winter weddings!
2. Copper Geometric Centrepieces
They make a great styling piece when grouped with flowers. We have been loving using them in our stationery photo styling too! By the way, we found our geometric planters at Kmart for only $10, see one of our unedited shots of Jade and Andy’s copper foiled wedding invitations below, more on this gorgeous newly-wed couple to come later!
3. Hanging Copper Lighting
Loving the styling from Sylvia and Thomas’ Hinterland Wedding at The Grove, Byron Bay. Copper Basket lights mixed with white and green florals suspended from the marquee ceiling!
Cute Decoration Idea —
Buy copper hanging caged bulk string lights from one of our favourite stores Anthropologie ($58 US) and string them behind the bridal table or above the dance floor.
4. Copper & Gold Cutlery
Stunning metallic cutlery has been making a statement at place settings. We met Gold Wedding Hire at A Darling Affair in January and were in love with their gorgeous cutlery range.
Fancy adding some gold leaf flecks to beautify your simple naked cake, or perhaps a lasercut copper cake topper by Fancy Face Studio!
Wedding Cake Topper Idea –
If you have a custom monogram or creative typography for your name’s designed as a part of your wedding stationery, ask us about lasercutting your design into a cake topper, painted to match your wedding colour scheme!
6. Copper Chairs
Bring a touch of extravagance and luxury to your event styling with copper or gold chairs or perhaps Mr & Mrs copper chair hangers for the Bride and Groom!
Copper Wire Chair Crush —
We are absolutely loving the Illusion Chair which featured in the launch event styling of warehouse function venue, The Joinery in West End, Brisbane. You can find it at Valiant Hire.
7. Placecard Ideas
From copper pipe cut to size for place card holders to Copper Sticky Tape personalised with guest names, here are some great DIY ideas! Copper Placecard holders are sold by beau-coup.com and make a great little take home gift for your guests.
Place card Styling Ideas —
Make personalised name tags with copper foil sticky tape from [we got ours from Notemaker] or for a more traditional place card holder source these gorgeous copper rings from beau-coup.com which double as great little gifts for your guests.
8. Seating Charts
Guests of course need to find their seat at the reception so here are some gold and copper inspired ideas for seating chart design and escort cards pinned to a board with copper pins to help guests find their way. Seating Chart Design by Yesterday Creative featuring Sylvia and Tom’s beautiful custom monogram.
9. Copper Vases & Florals
Flowers with coppery hues of yellow and orange make for a great pop of colour, or bring it home with copper vases and hanging decorations with bright pinks and reds seen in Newlyweds Jade and Andy’s wedding reception styling at The Joinery in West End.
10. Hanging Garlands
Geometric Shapes and Glitter hanging from the ceiling or as a creative sparkly photobooth backdrop – Geometric Copper Hanging Garlands — What is not to love? Say no more!
