One of the most popular wedding colors is white – after all, it's the hue chosen for most bridal gowns, so why wouldn't you want to include it in your décor? Another popular choice is gold as it's a warm metal that has a regal feel to it. When combining the two – white and gold – the result is magical. Since the colors are fairly neutral, the palette works for a ceremony and/or reception in any season and also complements a variety of styles and venue types.
Couples desiring a natural, laid-back wedding in a garden-like venue can accent the greenery and fresh blooms with white and gold décor that won't overpower the beauty of the natural landscape; on the opposite spectrum, pairs wanting a glamorous soirée can make a stunning ballroom even more beautiful with gilt-backed chairs with ivory cushions, sequined table linens, and elegant centerpieces showcasing alabaster blooms with leaves dipped in gold. Just like choosing a white bridal gown, you really can't go wrong with a white-and-gold wedding color palette.
