classic copper

This copper wedding inspiration board has such a classic and beautiful style to it – I’ve fallen in love! The catalyst for this inspiration board was the picture of the bride in that beautiful and unique copper skinny belt. Isn’t that detail the greatest?!

Copper colored ideas for a classic wedding

Copper colored weddings can be tricky to pull off. Pair copper with the wrong colors and it can muddy up your entire wedding palette. That’s why using a lot of crisp and clean whites is the perfect way to let copper do its thing: shine.

One motif that I am loving about this inspiration board are the bands of copper everywhere: the bride’s belt, the cake, and the sugared rims of the cocktail glasses. Be sure to look for ways to add motifs throughout your wedding in order to tie the entire look together in an elegant and sophisticated way!
