More Brides Going For Gold

Wedding trends are ever-changing and, especially in the age of social media, there’s more inspiration out there than ever before.

Pinterest is, naturally, a great place to look if you want some ideas on how to make your wedding special for all the right reasons and the site has recently released its 2019 trend report.

When it comes to bridal fashion, it seems that gold is falling firmly in favour with many who are preparing to get hitched in the new year. According to the website, searches for gold wedding gowns are up by a staggering 1,552 per cent this year.

Of course, as well as your wedding dress you’ll need the accessories to go with it, which means gold wedding jewellery is also likely to see a spike in popularity.

But what if you’ve got the perfect piece of jewellery for your big day, but it just isn’t gold? There’s actually a simple solution – send it for gold plating and you’ll have the item you want in the right kind of precious metal to fit your theme.

Another big wedding trend is one for back garden weddings, the website revealed. Searches for backyard weddings were up by 441 per cent this year, indicating that more couples are looking for ways to keep their big day personal and a little less formal.

Even if you’re not getting married, you can still reach for gold jewellery, after Refinery29 named accessories made from the precious metal as “the best way to bejewel yourself this party season”.
