Hello, hello! We’re kicking off this beautiful Thursday with a pretty color palette for a black and gold wedding. If you’re planning an autumnal or winter wedding, this is an excellent and versatile choice for a palette and can help you to create a completely cohesive wedding theme. Pair gold – an already awesome color for autumn – with black for a chic, stylish, and elegant color palette. Incorporate white if you like, add metallics, or a splash of unexpected color (like hot pink). Black and gold is one hot color palette we don’t see fading away anytime soon; to prove it, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite black and gold wedding finds to inspire you. So, get ready for those creative juices to start flowing as you plan an incredible black and gold inspired wedding using some of these hand-picked finds from a pair of swoon-worthy pumps (with a black bow), a guest book soaked in gold paint, a sumptuous, oh-so-sweet black and gold wedding cake, a wedding dress embellished in gold sequins, and much more. Read on to see what we found… and enjoy the eye candy!
Black and Gold Wedding Inspiration
We couldn’t help but kick off the list with this truly remarkable find by the lovely Liza of Lillybuds Bouquets. Oh, and it never wilts… talk about a beautiful find that lasts forever!
No wedding is complete without plenty of accessories, like these black and gold earrings, sequin headband for bridesmaids, and a sweet little envelope clutch. Adorable.
I love this next find: it ties into the color palette AND incorporates an autumnal, leafy accent. By Rustic Gem Jewelry.
The perfect pair: a gold sequin wedding dress and a pair of Valentino’s.
Instead of a traditional diamond, consider a rose cut black diamond hera solitaire ring, like this cutie spotted at Andrea Bonelli…
This next collection: a love necklace for your girls, a gold birdcage veil for you, and a black and gold wedding guest book for your friends and family to sign!
For him: a black and gold wedding bow tie that ties into the entire scheme. By Wims and Co.
For her: a black bridesmaid dress worthy of being worn again! It’s a convertible dress, which means each bridesmaid can wear the style best suited for her body type. Pair with a skinny gold sash belt – or simply gift as a fun accessory for the next girls’ night. Finally, black and gold earrings tie together the look and make a great keepsake, versatile enough to wear on the wedding day and beyond.
Finally, tie in decorative touches, like gold chargers, flatware, and a black votive candle holder to complete your reception space. A black and gold wedding cake completes the look, while subtle additions (like coordinating table numbers and wedding invitations) create a cohesive theme.
