WEDDING TRENDS: Copper

We know metallics are in for weddings, but it's not just about gold and silver anymore. Copper is making a huge comeback! Copper is versatile, and can give two looks: the vintage and industrial feel which is a great alternative for a daring bride, and the soft feminine feel. Today we show you both ways it can be done: edgy and feminine!

First up: Edgy. If you are looking for a more urban feel, mix copper with dark colors like browns, emeralds and gray. You can use copper trays to add a touch of vintage (even better if they have a nice patina!). You can use trays to display a lot of things, like invitations, cookies, and escort cards. Add a touch of copper to the inside of your invitations to give guests a sneak peak of what is to come. We love adding copper to your cake, and if you are looking for something more non-traditional, have it be a naked cake with a copper icing drizzle.


For Feminine: Copper doesn't have to just feel worn and rustic. If you are looking to add it to your cake, but want to keep it classy, add stripes or flowers to soften the look. Copper mugs are perfect for Moscow Mules (our friend Sarah had copper mugs at her wedding, they were awesome!) Mix the copper with light colors, like white, green and blush for a light and airy feeling.
