The coolest pink and gold wedding ideas involve a lot of layering. Layer different shades of pink and gold (and even throw in a few patterns here and there) to achieve a rich palette with tons of dimension.
Just like layering colors, layering textures also creates a dynamic wedding aesthetic. The gold sequins and beading on the bridesmaid dresses perfectly complements the smooth pink silk ribbons on the bouquets.
With sparkling rosé cocktails and vodka crans, the options for pink and gold cocktails are almost endless. Incorporate your entire palette by making your own gold glitter swizzle sticks and dipping each glass into sparkling gold sugar.
Want a subtle gold and pink palette? Use cream-colored linens with gold pattern accents, blush floral centerpieces, and wooden table numbers painted in a light matte gold. The effect is a blushing glow, rather than an in-your-face punch of pink and sparkle.
Modern weddings often use alternative decor elements, such as balloons, to fill the space in giant loft venues. These bubblegum pink geronimo balloons tied down with gold garland are a lighthearted detail to add next to welcome tables or food stations.
To add a glint of gold to your pink tablescape, use these golden animal place card holders. They can double as favors, and will make an excellent conversation starter.
For an ultra glam pink and gold wedding, it's time to call the florist. Go luxe with floral chandeliers and cascading arrangements on gold sequined linens. Add candlelight to make the whole room shimmer!
Shabby Chic Style
Pink and gold doesn't have to be so over the top, though. For a shabby chic or vintage wedding, use pink glasses and gold chargers to create an equally compelling, but less ornate, tablescape.
Pink and gold wedding cakes always look stunning in real wedding photos. We're particularly fond of those with alternating colors in each layer. This one with its blush floral decor and solid gold bottom layer looks delicious.
You can't have a pink and gold wedding and not take advantage of metallic confetti. Use it in a pinata at the reception, or as your exit toss (large pieces generally photograph better).
