Muted tones are often a popular choice for wedding day décor – creams, blush, light greys and pops of greens are the perennial colours that always work. But if you fancy going a little more adventurous with your wedding day décor, then consider trying the very chic and on trend colour palette of antique gold and dusky blue.
It can be a really dramatic colour choice and bring instant atmosphere to your wedding day décor. Even subtle touches can be simply stunning. Think blue table runners with gold plates. Light blue glassware with gold candles, blue wedding cakes dusted with gold and so on. The only limit is your imagination when it comes to this truly chic colour palette.

Antique style gold candlesticks with navy blue candles are seemingly simple, but can look incredibly chic. Modest centrepieces such as glass lanterns dipped with gold frosting work really well against navy blue table cloths and runners. Or why not mix the antique gold candle sticks with blue and green wildflowers? Or go for antique style gold birdcages filled with a mix of blue candles and antique style gold frames would work really well for table numbers too.
Table Décor, Glassware & Cutlery
Mix and match dusky blue and glittery gold table runners on your tables, the contrasting colours will look stunning. Play around with gold plates, blue glassware and cutlery, or just go for dark blue napkins for that pop of intense colour. Think about having intense blue notes on the table, contrasting with gold Chiavari chairs or uses sashes to create the same effect.
Around The Room
Why not set up a dramatic gold glitter table cloth for your dusky blue escort cards? Or have an antique gold style mirror with the seating plan written in navy chalk? Navy and gold high pod tables for your drinks reception would be stunning, as would some blue uplighters to give the room some real atmosphere. Think about navy and gold backdrops using streamers, ribbon and draping.
Food & Drinks
Antique gold and rich dusky blue make for a truly eye-catching wedding cake colour combo. But think even beyond cakes and go for navy macaroons dusted with gold and why not offer guests a signature arrival drink, such as a blueberry cordial or cocktail with gold straws? Or dust the top of the glasses with edible gold glitter.
