How to work metallics into your bridal look

Metallics never really go out of style and nowhere is this more true than on your wedding day. From silver-tipped heels to gold-infused hair accessories, add some sparkle to your wedding day look with some stylish metallics.

It’s all in the shoes

Metallic heels are offer fabulous contrast to the classic white or ivory wedding dress. You can go for the classic silver or gold for a timeless appeal, or you could opt for shoes in a colourful metallic hue. If you’re going for a bolder shade, it’s a good idea to match your choice of shoe with one of the main colours of your wedding day colour scheme.


There are a rich variety of metallic wedding shoes to choose from, from sparkling, embellished pumps to a classic pale gold heel that elongates the leg. Take the time to consider your skintone, shade of dress and the simplicity of your other accessories in order to find the ideal pair for you. Paler shades of gold and silver will look beautiful on a light skin tone, while stark silvers and warm golds will suit women with darker skin.

Mix and match

When choosing your metallics, also consider how they will work with your overall look. Light metallics will work well with a low-key bridal look or one that is feminine, darker shades will go well with a wedding look that is bold and includes warmer tones.

Metallics bring a glamorous edge to a bride’s look, so you’ll want to pair your metallic accessories either with some other simple accessories and a modest wedding dress, or you can play around with or two bolder accessories. The key is to not go overboard – in this case, less is more.

Sequins and embellishments

Sequins and embellishments

One of the best ways to incorporate metallics is through your embellishments. Play with gems, glass beads and crystals on the bodice and skirt of your wedding dress to explore a magical feel to your overall look. Embrace sequins and sparkle in bold embellishments or go for a dress actually made from gold, rose gold, or silver sequins.

Metallic dresses are something that can work for every bride, as Brides highlights:

“Whether you’re a party girl at heart or want a statement-making reception dress, a gold or silver gown works well for both formal parties and lively laidback bashes. Plus, the metallic trend works with a variety of silhouettes and styles from a gilded ball gown and a silver silk vintage-inspired slip to a short sequin-embellished shift.”

The metallic theme is right on trend for brides this year. Which metallic accessories and embellishments will you be embracing for your wedding day?
