Autumn is the perfect time of year for mixing and matching metals, jewel tones and deep colored florals. Today we’re sharing 9 ideas for a mixed metals autumn wedding with the perfect amount of rustic elegance.
Setting the Tone
The mixed metals trend has been around for a little while now, and it’s a great trend to incorporate into your wedding because the sky is the limit when it comes to decor – it’s much easier to find mix and match pieces than it is to find all pieces that match perfectly.
Start the metallic trend off early with your wedding stationery – your save the dates and invitations with gold, copper or silver foil will set the tone for your entire wedding day.
Choose a wedding venue that fits your theme as well. A rustic yet modern barn is the perfect setting for this mixed metals theme. With old wooden beams and a polished concrete floor, your metallic decor and color palette will work well in a space like this. You can also choose an old factory-turned-wedding-venue with brick walls and concrete floors. Either space shares the same moody ambiance that you’re trying to achieve with this mixed metals autumn wedding.
Mix and Match Metals
Copper, brass, silver and gold all come together to make this theme work. Look for vintage metal pieces for your centerpieces and decor at flea markets and antique stores, and mix those with newer pieces, like copper or gunmetal gray chairs or gold flatware.
Add some metallic shimmer into your attire as well! A mixed metal hair piece with a hint of glimmering stones will be the perfect accessory for your updo, and bridesmaids in art deco inspired sequin gowns will tie your entire theme together. Just like your decor, have your bridesmaids mix and match different shades of shimmery gray, copper and gold for a look that is truly unique.
The mix and match look draws from the deeper colors of autumn and will bring a great mix of elegance and rustic feel to your wedding day.
Mix your metals with some lovely fall tones for a wedding design that is truly stunning. Deep hues of blue, purple and burgundy make the shimmer in the metals pop and stand out when the lights are low and the candles are flickering.
Instead of traditional white or ivory tapers in your candlestick holders, go for deep blue or purple. And mix in some color in your place settings as well! A coral charger for under your guests’ plates will look wonderful with blue goblets and violet linen napkins.
Carry a bouquet of flowers that will compliment your wedding theme as well – deep coral roses, burgundy dahlias and violet ranunculus paired with greenery is a great combination for your wedding bouquet.
Mix and match metals and deep autumn colors come together to create a wonderfully rustic and elegant theme that is perfect for the fall season.
