Especially when the leaves start to turn, an autumnal detail like the spray-painted place card above is a great choice. An easy DIY, collect leaves, spray them gold, and then hire a calligrapher to fill out each name for the most professional final product.

These gold sequined bridesmaid dresses are exquisitely glam. They have a slightly rosy hue which will flatter a wider range of skin tones than the brassiness of true gold.
