Moodboard: a rose gold rush

One of the first questions you’ll often be asked by potential suppliers is ‘what is your wedding’s theme?’. While some couples will jump straight in with moodboards detailing how they’ll incorporate their love of pirates in their wedding, it’s not always easy to know where to start.

Metallics are a safe bet, but don’t assume that obvious gold or silver are the only options. If not tackled carefully, gold can look gaudy, and silver often needs a little something extra to make it stand out (silver and snowflakes are a particular fave for winter weddings).

That’s why we are proclaiming our love for rose gold. Its pinky undertones add warmth, and although copper is having a moment in interiors, rose gold looks a touch classier when styling weddings. Introduce pinks, creams and nudes with ease, or push the boat out and mix it with monochrome if you like to take risks – this one will pay off.
