16 Trendy Copper-Inspired Ideas for Your Wedding

Step aside, gold and silver — copper has been having a serious moment in the wedding world (and it’s not ending anytime soon). A warmer version of brass, yet a bit more saturated than rose gold, copper-inspired hues make a stylish accent to any wedding color palette. It blends perfectly with trending warm tones, like blush and coral, but also looks just as chic when balancing out cool grays and marble whites. Get inspired by these adorable copper-inspired wedding accents and decor.
