Opulent, elegant and decadent, rose gold continues to ride high in the fashion stakes. Here are 12 ideas to incorporate it into your big day

1. Cutlery and glassware

An easy way to add the showstopping shade to your wedding tables is to promote it with your cutlery and glassware. The key is in the detail as opposed to going all-out rose gold with your charger plates, centrepieces and stationery too. Keep surrounding elements neutral and let the rose gold accents do all the talking. Sequinned table cloths, sparkling table runners and glittering chair décor can also look sensational.

2. Prosecco

Yes, you can even extend the colour scheme to your catering with mesmerising rose gold prosecco. Shimmer for Prosecco by Popaball transforms your fizz in an instant and adds a hint of sweet raspberry, too. Want to create your own prosecco station? Here's how to fulfil the idea with flair.

3. Dresses

Whether you want your bridesmaids to wear the colour with pride, or you want to don an extra special set of sequins as the bride, rose gold is a beautiful idea for dresses which are guaranteed to turn heads.

4. The rings

If your partner is happy to go rose gold with your wedding bands, then you have yourself a keeper. Alternatively, you could go it alone while your partner picks his preference; just ensure you shop around to find a hue which perfectly complements your engagement ring. 

5. Décor

The options in rose gold wedding décor are well and truly endless, but metallic pots and tealight holders, decorative signs and even balloons are a good place to start.

6. Shoes

Understated glitter, metallic kitten heels or bold rhinestones are just some of the spectacular choices in shoes that look ravishing in rose gold.

7. Groom accessories 

Give your groom a dose of the action with a rose gold tie or cufflinks that still look super suave.

8. Cake 

Add subtle details of rose gold or opt for all-over colour for a cake that will get all your guests talking. Scattered rose gold leaf can also look breath-taking, as can metallic painted flowers for a modern take on a classic look.

9. Invitations

Rose gold foiling continues to be a trend requested by couples of their stationer. Embossed letters look lovely when they catch the light, and can offer a hint towards the colour scheme of your special day.

10. Accessories

If you're wearing white, why not offset the look with glints of rose gold? Jewellery is the perfect way to add colour and will really stand out against the white of your dress. Similarly, bejewelled hairpieces offer another way to harness the trend in a subtle way. 

11. Nails 

Metallic nails are all the rage right now and a foil finish can really make them 'pop'. Match your fingers to your toes for a (rose) golden girl look from top to bottom.

12. Flowers

While faux metallic flowers can look a little tacky, consider dusky pinks and gorgeous minks for your bouquet and venue floristry to beautifully promote a rose gold palette.
