Color Palette -- Gold


Gold weddings invoke warm thoughts and luxurious feelings.  A gold color palette can be rich and elegant or bright and fun, depending on how you decide to use the color.  Whether you choose a glittery, lush shade of gold paired with a hue of similar elegance or a combination of warm, fall colors that invite your guests to share your joy, gold is a versatile color choice that can create a beautiful wedding with the perfect atmosphere.

Why Choose a Gold Wedding Color Palette?

Gold is a traditional color of matrimony.  A member of the warm and cheerful yellow family, gold is bright and fun but also extravagant and lush.  There are so many different ways you can incorporate shades of gold into your wedding day, it's a favorite choice with many brides. 

Gold Flower Ideas

The flowers you choose for your gold wedding will primarily depend on the mood you're trying to achieve.  You can't go wrong with classic gold yellow roses, whatever your planning.  Bright sunflowers are the perfect choice for summer or outdoor events, while gold poppies and desert primrose invite bright thoughts of happiness and spring.  If your special day calls for flowers with a richer, more luxurious feel, consider gold painted berries or eucalyptus paired with a deep, complementary color.

Colors That Complement a Gold Palette

Are you planning a holiday wedding or an elegant autumn affair?  Maybe you're dreaming of a bright, joyful spring celebration or accenting the natural colors of your beach destination?  Gold is a color versatile enough to suit any purpose - as long as you choose the right complementary hues.

  • Neutral elegance.  Shades of antique gold, mixed with peaches, creams, and light browns make a beautiful wedding palette that's ideal for any season or location.  This combination is romantic and elegant, without feeling too formal.

  • Classic fairytale.  Pair the colors of our favorite precious metals, silver and gold, for a sleek and sophisticated look that is perfect for a traditional affair.

  • Modern chic.  Pink and gold are a princess-like combination that can also suit any season.  Consider pastel hues for a spring romance or darker shades for a classy look perfect for evenings.

  • Autumn richness.  A gold color palette brings a luxurious feel to an autumn wedding.  Mix deep reds, oranges, and friendly chocolates with gold for a fall wedding that sparkles.  

  • Festive shimmers.  If you're planning a winter or holiday ceremony and you're dreaming of gold, pair it with a dark burgundy and green for an exciting color scheme that reflects the season.

  • Vintage fun.  A gold color palette can be elegant and luxurious or natural and relaxing; combine gold with aqua or a bright blue for a warm and rather retro feel.
