Depending on how much glam you want at your wedding will determine how much gold wedding decor you should incorporate. You can go full on, over the top with this pretty shade on everything from your bridesmaid dresses down to your wedding favors. In this case, you should opt for a white and gold wedding color scheme. As gold is so bright and flashy, you'll want to pair it with a more subtle color to avoid a gaudy look.
Perhaps you want to be a bit more subtle and add hints of shiny gold in your decor. In that case, think small: gold details in your and your bridal party's attire; a gold cake topper; gold wedding favors; maybe gold foil printing on your invitations.
A deeper shade, also known as golden, is also great for fall weddings and will coordinate perfectly with an autumn-inspired color scheme! Since gold wedding decorations are so popular right now, you'll have no trouble finding a wide variety of merchandise on the market.
