Shimmer and Shine: Metallic Fashion

Another hot trend taking 2016 by storm is metallic fashions. Brides all over are going for a lot of shimmer and shine, choosing color schemes for bridesmaid gowns and decor in bold metallics. The versatile colors of metal - from warm gold to brushed bronze to gleaming copper, and more - are elegant, whimsical, and natural. With the ongoing popularity of warehouse, loft, and barn venues, incorporating these newly-popular industrial elements with a monochromatic scheme gives your wedding a timeless feel.
