gold hanging leaves

10. Sequined Tablecloth: Dazzle your guests with gorgeous sequined linens. As dreamy as they are during the day, they’ll look absolutely stunning under the evening lights. (via Harmony Hilderbrand Photography)

gold tiara

11. Ayajewellery Gold Tiara ($95): For a more regal but equally romantic feel, trade out the leafy crown for a gold tiara. Copper works as well, but you’ll want to stick to the warm-hued metallics as opposed to silver or chrome.


12. Gilded Pumpkin Accents: Pumpkins and fall go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise they look great as fall wedding escort cards. Elevate ordinary gourds with a fresh coat of metallic gold or copper spray paint. (via Intimate Weddings)

naked cake

13. Naked Cakes: It doesn’t take much to make a statement — nope, not even frosting. Give your wedding cake a minimal touch by nixing the frosting/fondant and using natural garnishes like flowers to dress up your cake. (via Ashley Cook Photography / Hey Wedding Lady)

seating chart windows

14. Seating Chart Windows: This upcycled set of thrifted windows ain’t too shabby. Add calligraphy to similar thrift home parts or a lucite/acrylic sheet to display your seating chart. (via Kelsey Stewart / Wedding Chicks)
