15 Gold Inspired Wedding Ideas

I love the look of gold leafing. Like calligraphy, learning how to gold leaf is one my list of things I’d like to do. While I haven’t tackled gold leafing myself (yet), the look of gold leaf used in wedding and home decor is an inspiration to me. Today we’re sharing a handful of gold inspired wedding ideas (some using gold leafing) to inspire your upcoming wedding. We’ve rounded up a gold leaf wedding cake, ‘love’ signage, gold-inspired wedding invitations and place cards, a mason jar centerpiece, a table number, and a few DIY ideas you’ll want to try this weekend. Let’s begin, shall we?

One of our favorite gold wedding inspired finds is this Grecian-style gold leaf hair chain, spotted at Which Goose.

This gold leaf hair chain is the perfect non-veil alternative for the bride.  I love it as a chic accessory for a gold inspired wedding.

From top to bottom: We spotted a ‘love’ gold leaf sign from Host and Toast, a set of gold inspired wedding invitations (and placecards, underneath) from Golden Silhouette, a DIY gold leaf heart art tutorial from Sarah Hearts, a gold leaf hair comb by Le Chaim, and a gorgeous gold leaf wedding cake spotted at 100 Layer Cake, with photo from Jessica Burke and cake by the lovelies over at Pretty Please Bakeshop.

Turn an ordinary mason jar into a centerpiece-worthy vase! Just add this (and, if you like, sprinkle a bit of this along the bottom for added glam).

One of my favorite gold inspired wedding ideas is a gold painted mason jar. It makes an instant-glam centerpiece.  I especially love how the anemones pop against the gold paint.

This gold table number pops on a black and white striped table runner. You can make your own table number like this with a paper mache numeral (you can find them at any craft store) and apply a coat of gold paint.

I love the way this gold number pops against the black and white table runner.  You can make your own gold table number with a paper mache numeral or wooden number and gold paint.
