Copper has been around for ages (seriously, it was discovered in 8000 BC), but we've recently unearthed—ha, get it!—the metal in the world of weddings. It's super popular right now, and it's really no surprise why! The precious metal, or its color equivalent, is actually the perfect hue for a wedding. It's warm and it's shiny and it's metallic, meaning it can blend in and add a pop of flair at the same time. And let's be honest, copper is a welcome change from your more traditional metals like gold and silver. (They're pretty, sure, but we see them everywhere.)
And because all brides want to be different—we know what you're thinking!—we pulled some of our favorite copper-hued decor ideas and made an inspiration board for you. Everything is in one place, from copper barware and utensils to cool marble-accented candle holders and statement lanterns. And with a selection this pretty, we feel confident that you'll find an idea (or five!) in this picture-perfect gallery. Seriously, no matter if you're marrying in a field of grass or an dark, industrial warehouse, it's easy to incorporate the metallic hue into your wedding decor.
So go ahead and take this gallery as your inspiration, decide what you do and don't like, and get to making a mood board of your own. Invite your groom in on the project—and may we suggest a nice cold Moscow Mule (served in a copper mug, obvi!) to get you both in the designing mood!
Elevate your table settings with copper accents! This couple, and their planner Jessica Sloane, went all out—copper wax seals, copper candle holders, copper chargers...you get the picture. But, as you can see, the result it not an overwhelming amount of copper details, and that's thanks to the blue base color and large white accents (the menu, plate, candlesticks). As a general rule when creating your table decor, remember that it's nice to repeat a color in small, impactful ways—but make sure to space them out!
We didn't think we could love the idea of doing mad libs at your wedding any more. But then we found this! To recreate this look, place a card printed with mad libs on a copper easel and place it on each edge of the bar. Your guests will thank you for the fun (and beautiful!) conversation starter.
