Rose gold has a lot of going for it: It’s romantic, chic, and stylish—the perfect combination for some dreamy nuptials. Rose gold weddings took off when rose quartz became Pantone’s color of the year in 2016, and they’ve held a timeless appeal ever since.
This delicate hue has an understated elegance that’s surprisingly versatile; it’s easy for a rose gold wedding to have a feminine feel, but the palette can be subtly incorporated to accommodate different styles. Aisle markers of mauve-colored pampas grass might lend a rose gold indie edge, whereas an antique rose gold bar cart creates vintage vibes. But rose gold is more than a color. Whether it appears in foil lettering on an invitation suite or as a gleaming plate charger, rose gold’s often metallic qualities add texture.
And you can even bring rose gold into your wedding day look! Ditch the traditional white for a blush-toned gown, don a pair of satin pink pumps, or let a pair of rose gold studs glitter at your ears. Top it off with a bouquet fashioned out of varying pink and red blooms for a rose gold aura.
These gorgeous rose gold wedding ideas promise to elevate your wedding.
Use Rose Gold Foil
Wedding invitations always set the tone for the big. For a rose gold wedding, lend hand-torn paper some elegance with a watercolor wash, rose gold wax seal, and matching rose gold foiled calligraphy to give your guests an artful impression.
This invitation suite takes on the classic and traditional. Rose gold engravings take shape in a chic frame and garden-inspired monogram, bringing a pop of metallic to a white and soft gray palette.
Wear Rose Gold Jewelry
What better way to incorporate rose gold into your wedding than with your engagement ring? It can serve as the perfect source of inspiration for your color palette. Consider this black diamond and rose gold ring, which could evoke both a moody or formal theme.
Don Metallic Shoes
Add a dash of color and shine to your feet with a pair of rose gold strappy sandals. They’re just the right complement to your rose gold ring!
Wear a Blush Dress
Subtly elevate your rose gold color palette by incorporating it into your wedding day look. A beaded blush Watters gown with flowing tulle and intricate sheer bodice creates modern-day princess vibes. This bride completed the look with a half-up do and dramatic veil.
Dress Your ‘Maids in Pink
But if you want to wear classic white on the big day, put your bridesmaids in rose gold dresses instead! The light pink is soft and understated, and will create an illusion of a rosy gold glow as your girls stand by your side.
Opt for Shades of Rose
To give your bridal party’s color palette some texture, dress your bridesmaids in long shades of nudes and blush. The mismatched look maintains cohesiveness while highlighting each bridesmaid’s sense of style.
A blush-colored Inbal Dror gown with a sweetheart neckline, close-to-the-body silhouette, and bedazzled accents is glam and chic. Pair it with a bouquet of rose gold king protea and dusty hued roses to complete the look.
Add a Rose Gold Brooch
Add an antique touch with an heirloom brooch—it makes for the perfect something borrowed. This bride wore her great-grandmother’s monogrammed mother-of-pearl and rose gold pin on the cuff of her wedding dress.
Pick Pastel Pinks
Forage some blooms in the morning for a fresh-looking bouquet. We love this combination of Koko loko garden roses, pale pink lisianthus, pink grasses, and white thistles for a pastel palette with a rose gold tone.

Add a Wax Seal
The right touch can completely transform the look of your decor. In the case of these escort cards, a wrap of twine and a rose gold wax seal create an old world feel. Display them on a boxwood hedge accented by lanterns and a swath of roses and dahlias.
Display Tented Escort Cards
Tented escort cards with gold wax seals boast a custom wreath design. Flaunt them on a silk-covered entrance table among votives and underneath a majestic centerpiece of white and pink blooms for a classic look.
