I was inspired by the gilded gowns gracing the Spring 2012 Fashion Week catwalks! From Jenny Packham to Carolina Herrera to Reem Acra, our favorite bridal designers left onlookers swooning with their glittery golds and sparkling metallics.
I started thinking how gorgeous a black and gilded wedding color palette would be... perfect for sophisticated downtown I Do's and elegant black tie receptions. Instead of traditional black and white, we love black and ivory, cream and candlelight, plus touches of gold, silver, topaz, champagne, or any sparkly shade your heart desires!
