From rustic outdoor celebrations to opulent ballroom affairs, we're seeing more and more weddings that incorporate the color gold into various décor elements. The glitzy metallic hue can be showcased in polished, matte, or glitter form, allowing the royal shade to translate beautifully to a range of bridal styles and wedding events. While some brides go all out with gold glitter table linens, others choose to use the gilded color as an accent on ivory wedding cakes or calligraphy on escort cards. No matter how much gold you desire for your own celebration, there are plenty of ways to add golden glamour to suit your individual style on your big day.

We've browsed hundreds of real weddings to find 21 unique ways to incorporate gold into wedding party attire, invitations, ceremony décor, paper goods, floral designs, reception decorations, cocktail accessories, wedding favors, and your wedding cake!
