Monday Mood Board: Metallic Love – Copper
Morning, gorgeous ones!
I hope that you all had a very beautiful weekend – my mum decided it would be a good idea yesterday to disturb my sleepy slumber Sunday by going to the cinema to watch ‘Paddington’ (I mean, who goes to the cinema on Sunday?). I have to say though, I loved it, it released my inner child and the film did get me very much so in the mood for Christmas.
What have you been doing to get you in the Christmas spirit, lovelies?
This week, our Monday Mood Board feature is kick-starting a 3 part blog series as a nod to our favourite winter-time colours; Copper, Gold and Silver. And, as you probably already figured we’re welcoming Copper onto the blog as your first post of the week. There’s no lie that this often downplayed colour is lapping up as much lime-light as it can at the moment and, by doing so it is making a firm impression in the fashion, jewellery, home wear and cosmetics scene’s.
Let’s talk about how you can use it in your wedding, be it Winter, Spring Summer or Autumn…

Set The Scene
Copper foiled stationery in our eyes, is always and will always be a winner. You can’t go too far wrong with a choice of navy or off-white as a backing colour then a simple message in calligraphy (see below for inspo!).

Flowers & Flair
This look is all about keeping it simple while creating an impact. Choose greenery and evergreens such as eucalyptus, Russian olive, herbs such as rosemary and keep flowers to a staple, no-fuss colour – gypsophila (baby’s breath), ranunculus, hydrangea, anemones and even succulents for added texture.
You could even add in herbs such as sage and rosemary at table settings and in boutonnieres to add to the organic look and feel. The pretties winter wedding award will for sure, be yours.

Finally, we come to a true Wedding Affair favourite. Rose Gold.
Over the years we have seen more, and more rose gold being featured in weddings, and what better than your copper wedding (it’s too similar not to call it a copper hue, right?)? There is no surprise really as to why the popularity of rose gold has shot up, it’s simply stunning, a true trendy colour, glittering and the best bit? It pairs wonderfully with so many different colour and styles.

Little Bit’s n’ Bobs…
To round off today’s quite frankly gorgeous palette, we’re finishing with some little touches that will make the copper in your wedding day ‘pop’ and just add a whole lot more fun and fabulous.
Surprise guests with a little bespoke box of your favourite items to double up as favours; whiskey for the boys, diddy’ Champagnes for the girls, chocolate to melt on marshmallows for the hungry ones at the end of the night and copper toasting cups. Major heart eyes.
And, as for the cake? There’s not much we can say other than So. Darn. Pretty. The cutest copper companion for your chic winter ceremony.
