Sometimes I have to stop myself and remember to enjoy the weddings I'm involved right now. This season. But I just can't help myself sometimes! And right now I'm infatuated, no obsessed a bit, with the idea of gilded.....anything! I've decided that even though I haven't seen it on anyone's radar for 2013 trends, I'm calling it. Hell, maybe I'll help create a trend for next year! Think Old World. Think Baroque. Think Versailles. But of course, modernized. My Jersey friend would be so proud of me right now..
Enjoy these few pics I've found.....

Ask your crafty floral designer to hunt up some gilded glass before you take on any pain in the rear diy projects...

Go to mbandblonde.blogspot.com/ to see a compilation of awesome gilded cakes!
Not sure you're quite ready to go gold? How about incorporating the color as contrast sparingly throughout? Think the already popular sandstone and burlap taken to the next level. Check it: http://gildandgrace.blogspot.com/2012/02/convertible-colour-mint-and-neutrals.html
Or can't you just see it? The portrait backdrop that you'll be looking at over and over through the ages...may as well be gold.....

And as I'm writing this, I'm thinking about all of the possibilities of flower choices. Not sure there's much you can't do with it...
Chocolate cosmos, fig dahlias, blush peonies, green viburnum, eggplant callas, bella donna delphinium, amaranthus, celosia, kelly green ruscus ...
I could go on and on and on....but I'll digress to those who've actually done the work and put some boards together.... I particularly love these combos....
