The Great Gatsby and art deco styles of the Roaring 20s have inspired weddings everywhere this year, bringing with it a re-emergence of black and gold. This classic color combo is rich with the scintillating shimmer of gold and striking elements of solid black. It’s easy to create a luxurious look for less with black and gold as your wedding colors.

For your wedding invitations, we suggest something simple paired with a sophisticated script font or a modern block font. We used our Pure Tradition invitation in ecru with gold ink and the French Script font. This invite features thermography printing, which gives it an extra elegant look and feel.

Gold wedding decorations is a must! Whether you paint glass bottles like we’ve shown below, incorporate glittering gold letters and hearts or go with the always-affordable staple, helium balloons, use gold wherever you can. Chandeliers and candelabras work really well with these styles, so hit up some thrifts stores, flea markets and antique shops for some cool pieces you can paint.
