All that glitters is great for weddings.

Metallics are still a favorite when it comes to wedding decor, but lately the concept has been toned down. Instead of having the Midas touch from floor to ceiling, touches of gold, silver, and/or platinum are used to accent more common hues. These precious metals tend to look lovely with pink or add a shot of spunk to deep fuchsia, especially gold. When pared with black and white, a whole new level of class is obtained. Also, lets not forget that they pair very well with jewel tones such as emerald green, ruby red, and amethyst purple-much like your favorite piece of jewelry.

A word of advice: gold adds warmth, silver cools things down, and platinum is a neutral, so choose your metallic accent with the overall vibe you are trying to achieve in mind.
