Precious Metals | Mixed metals wedding inspiration
As the saying goes, all that glitters is not gold. But I would argue that all that glitters is shimmering silver, antique gold and the warmth of copper and rose gold – a wedding colour palette that is sure to delight even the most discerning bride on her wedding day.
For lady luxe style, draw inspiration from antique styling with the glorious glow of each metal in a modern aesthetic. Think a little dose of dreaminess with a dash of magical, finished with a sprinkling of gold dust of course!
But where do you start when it comes to mixing metals? Start with a neutral palette of soft ivory or off-white and add your favourite precious metal in a muted tone – silver, rose gold, copper or gold. From there, thoughtfully work in hints of your favourite features of the other metals that inspire you. Let the charm and warmth of each metal allure you and transport you into a world of whimsy.
I love the look of mixed metals but it can feel a bit overwhelming combining metallic tones when each metal can seem to outshine the other. I like to focus on subtle contrast and combining colours with textures – details shouldn’t compete but they should be complementary and harmonious.

A hint of pink
For a playful yet polished look, incorporate the warmth of colour by working in the prettiest shades of pink and dusty purple to create a fresh and inviting colour palette that’s both charming and alluring.
There’s something about these feminine tones of purple and pink that accentuate metallic tones like no other. Seductive and intriguing in the most subtle of ways. All you need now is your groom in a pale grey suit at the end of the aisle to let the fairy tale begin.
