Cake & Details :: Opulent Decadence

I think the title and the board speaks for itself. How can anyone resist chocolate cake….let alone four to choose from? Rich gold, lush reds like crimson and oxblood are great colors for creating a look of opulent decadence. Add neutral colors like parchment and tobacco brown to the mix to “ground” the palette. You want the design to be well thought out and not appear to be a mish mash of similar colors. Parchment and tobacco will tie all the elements of your palette together seamlessly. Get some tips below to get this look for your wedding day.

If this is your style or preferred color palette {this works well for autumn weddings but can be done in the late summer months or for an evening wedding during any season} opt for accessories in gold and bronze. To get a luxurious look add layers of fabric and linen draped in various rich colors throughout your reception decor. To make it easier on your budget, pick a venue that already has this look and feel. Gold or mahogany chiavari chairs are a perfect seating choice for a wedding of this design. Lots of gorgeous blooms in tall centerpieces will add to the drama this look demands. Treat your guests to a taste of your big day by sending gorgeous boxed invitations in red, lined in a rich tobacco brown fabric. On the day of the wedding your cocktail hour should be feast for the eyes and the senses. Champagne is not just for toasting and goes well with everything! Pair decadent international cheeses with fruits like pomegranate, figs, and olives served on slate slabs for a beautiful presentation.
