Two of the most popular wedding trends this year have been the introduction of marble and copper. These two elements have overtaken the craze of rose gold and blush pink, and it seems they really are taking the wedding world by storm. Which is why today we are focusing on a marble and copper wedding inspiration post.
Fortunately, marble and copper work wonderfully individually but I think when you combine them, they make for a seriously chic marble and copper wedding theme. They’re the perfect duo for a gritty urban affair and they look wonderful styled in industrial surroundings or a warehouse space. Indulge in a little wedding inspiration today and take a look at how you can incorporate marble and copper into your wedding day…
Your guests will adore getting a subtle hint of your wedding theme, so opt for invitations with a marble background and copper calligraphy writing. Embossed metallic will add a dash of luxury to your stationery, and it’ll really stand out against the marble paper. Try and keep the same stationery style throughout your wedding, for instance with your table plan and table numbers. This will help tie everything in together and it definitely flaunts your theme.
Bride and Bridesmaids
When it comes to the bridal look it’s best to keep things understated. Copper hair accessories and jewellery will look incredible against the contrast of a white gown. There are some fab geometric-inspired hair vines out there, which are just perfect for this theme. Alternatively, use subtle grey accents throughout your bridal outfit for a nod towards your marble theme. When it comes to styling your bridesmaids, I think sparkling copper or rose gold gowns would look gorgeous! Alternatively, pale grey gowns with subtle copper accessories would look equally wonderful.
Groom and Groomsmen
Stylish grey suits are a must-have when it comes to a marble and copper wedding theme. Compliment your suit with a copper coloured pocket handkerchief and bow-tie.
Marble and copper wedding cakes are huge news for 2016, and there are so many stunning designs to choose from. You could mix it up by creating the bottom and top tier with marble icing, and use metallic icing for the middle tier – it would look magnificent with a copper cake topper!
Marble and Copper Wedding Details
I think a marble and copper wedding theme works beautifully in a white blank canvas space or an urban wedding venue. I love the thought of creating a marble-inspired backdrop for your ceremony or your wedding photographs. You could even write your favourite romantic quotes or your love story on it in copper ink. Copper geometric vases full of succulents and cacti will look super stylish dotted around your venue. They’d also make chic wedding table centrepieces. Mix it up by adding flowers to the vases and also a few tea-lights. Serve delicious cocktails in copper goblets and on a marble tray – you can then save them as part of your home décor after the big day!
Marble and copper are both popular for a reason: they’re stylish, chic and incredibly modern. As you can see, there are lots of ways to incorporate both elements into your wedding day.
