The upcoming trend for 2020 is metallic details. Regardless of which metal you choose as your main theme, metallic is the way to go. Whether that be Rose Gold, Copper, Silver or Gold, make sure your chosen metallic accent compliment’s your wedding’s colour palette.
Dark and moodier colour palettes for winter weddings work great with coppers and pewters, whereas brighter summer colour palettes can be lifted with accents of silver and gold.
Metallics are also a great way to add dimension to your wedding scheme. Different textures add a more modern, fashion-forward element so your theme doesn’t look to “match matchy”. Team your metallic accents with different fabrics and materials such as velvet, silk and glass.
