15 Gold Inspired Wedding Ideas

by Emma Arendoski

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?

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.

Is there any way I can order the monogram letter with the leaf design?
