Now that we’re officially in November, I’m feeling like it’s acceptable for lots of winter posts so today we’ve founded some of the best in winter accessories… the gold clutch!
I love gold for weddings, especially in the winter. The color is regal and vibrant plus it goes with just about any palette! So for your winter wedding I’m thinking that the gold clutch is an absolute must!! Whether it’s a treat for yourself and you want to splurge (I know we all do it on wedding shoes so why not the wedding clutch as well) or if you’re looking to accessorize your maids with one signature piece (ie the gold clutch) then we’ve found loads of options for you! Some on the very expensive front, and others on the very budget-friendly front, but all perfect for a wedding day gift to yourself as the bride, or a gift for your bridesmaids!
For the bride, a few of the more expensive (but seriously fabulous options). From the mini, edgy limited edition Bottega Veneta (tenth photo), to the gorgeous Christian Louboutin classy gold (eighth photo) and finally the Miu Miu metallic gold leather from Net-a-Porter at $510 (last photo) these clutches are incredible accessories for the bride, especially if you are willing to splurge…
But because I know we can’t all spend hundreds on our bridesmaids gifts (or ourselves) we’ve managed to find some equally fab clutches on a way more reasonable budget! From Etsy seller Lost in Time, I love this incredible ivory gold brocade purse at only $65 (first photo) and another Etsy find from seller Salvage Life with a vintage 1950s glitter gold purse (twelfth photo). Like to shop at department stores? We found this gorgeous Tasha box clutch with metallic gold mesh from Nordstrom’s (ninth photo), and finally for our most budget-friendly gold clutch… stylish gold beading by Karen Marie at $44 (seventh photo).
Lately I’ve been loving blush and gold.. just wore these colors to a wedding this past weekend and was feeling very vintage chic with the color combo (blush lace dress + gold clutch and accessories)… but I’m only gushing over fashion here! So imagine how amazing I (or you) would be feeling with a whole wedding day full of beautiful shades of blush and elegant gold touches.
Blush and gold is a perfect palette for any season which is one of many reasons why I love this color combo. While beautiful in the spring, I think it’s equally romantic in the fall and I just can’t get over how lovely it is for a winter wedding. The pale pink evokes winter dreams and the gold is the sparkle that we all need to get through the season. So today I collected a little bit of everything for your wedding planning! Some highlights… this stunning gold and blush tulle bridesmaids dress from Tova’s Vintage Shop (first photo), a few of my favorite dessert options… tasty macaroons, ice cream cones and obviously cupcakes, an incredible gold + blush table setting (forth photo), these dainty but exquisite invitations by Daily Sip Studios(fifth photo), and finally some pretty in blush pink flats by Gianni Bini (ninth photo). For me… these pictures are just about making my Tuesday… blush and gold wedding planning anyone
The color gold makes me think of fame and riches, ornate interiors, and pretty, old buildings… but aside from all of this, it’s such a perfect wedding color! And even better, there are plenty of ways to dazzle your wedding with different touches of gold making it a fun choice for nearly every bride..
I love different gold wedding accessories like, well, your dress (this may be only for those die-heart gold fans), or an ornate, baroque style gold ballroom (both below), but if you’re on the more conservative side when it comes to the gold highlights on your wedding day, just use it in your palette as an accent color for, say, your cake, your heels, the specialty drink of the day, some elegant (if not heavy) beaded necklaces, the table setting, or for the ribbon on your bouquet (photos below). Each of these helps put a little sparkle into your wedding day but at the same time none of these options is too overwhelming; the gold just adds the glamour factor that no wedding should go without!
