Inspiration: Copper

Right now one of the big decorating trends for weddings is copper. I love this. Copper is a warm, inviting metallic that goes well with a wide variety of other colors. Whether you’re going for a blast of color or a restrained, neutral palette, copper will round your look out nicely. It can even bridge the gap between gold and silver handsomely if you want an all metallic look.

I’ve found a few examples of the versatility of copper, just in case you’re undecided on the matter.

But as I said before, copper can be rustic and simple, too. This dessert table is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. It also shows how great copper looks with neutrals.

So if you’re looking for a metallic to add to your wedding colors, don’t forget about copper!
