Want to add a tasteful hint of glam to your wedding day? Then you'll love these shimmering gold big-day details. Whether it's metallic wedding cakes or shimmering gold wedding dresses, luxe, gilded details are popping up all over Pinterest lately. To help get you inspired, we rounded up six fresh ways to add touches of gold into your big day, from invitations to favors.

Cake Topper: Consider topping your tiered cake with a delicate gold creation. Go for something understated, like this "I Do" design — Better Off Wed has tons of similar options.

Chargers: You won't need much else to turn even a simple reception space into something super elegant if you decorate your dinner table with glam gold chargers. This textured style pops against a white tablecloth, but your options are endless. Consider a gold-rimmed charger for something more understated or pair it with shimmering linens for an extra-glitzy look.

Place Setting: For a more subtle take on the gold trend, consider gilded flatware paired with an all-white place setting. The look is formal and elegant, but will still work with nearly any wedding style. Here, it's part of a rustic tablescape with a simple burlap runner, but it would look equally pretty paired with romantic blush or modern black linens.

Gold Balloons: We love these whimsy gold balloons, especially for an outdoor reception. They're perfect to lead guests to the dessert table, as seen here, but they'd also be a fun addition to your bar or above your sweetheart table with your initials. Plus, they're budget friendly.

Invitation: A classic wedding invitation becomes extra-special with the addition of gold-leaf details. The invite above is covered with gilded lace-inspired accents and gorgeous gold calligraphy.

Favor: Send guests home with a thank you that's as good as gold like these homemade peach preserves in mini metallic mason jars. Not the mason-jar kind of bride? Pass out other sweet shimmering desserts, like metallic candy, gold-dusted confections, or even mini champagne bottles.
