The interesting thing about coral and gold is that they blend so beautifully you hardly notice what is often the star of the show, metallic gold. It becomes just another color, which might disappoint those looking for flashier décor but for couples who want beauty and balance? Coral and gold is perfect!
Let’s call it what it is!
Coral is just another shade of really pretty pink. A little more sophisticated, maybe even a touch tropical. It’s important to remember how well coral mixes with different shades of pink. You will find it especially helpful as you’re searching for fresh flowers and other reception decorations. For example, the ombré chair decorations fade from a soft shade of pink to brilliant coral tones, which makes a lot of impact in the look and feel of this reception table.
It’s hard to think of another color combination as well balanced as coral and gold — especially two colors that are as bright and eye-catching! (If you think of any, let us know.) The wedding cake shown above is the perfect example of how metallic gold and coral blend so well. An artful use of color and shapes, this cake is stunning. The Gold Lace Wedding Invitation is another example of coral and gold creating beautiful balance. (Pssst…these invitations come with free response postcards.)
Accessorizing made easy!
Not only will finding gold jewelry for the bride and bridesmaids be a breeze, you’ll be able to accessorize your ceremony and reception with no trouble at all and on a very reasonable budget. You can find gold decorations everywhere. Be sure to check your local thrift stores and consignment shops. They’ll have an abundance of old gold jewelry and home accents you’ll be able to repurpose with a little creativity.
