Invites. Look for a design with subtle gold detailing on each piece, including the invite, reply, reception and directions card, says Anne Chertoff of Twirl New York.

Your dress. While dressing in head to toe gold would make you look like an Oscar statue, a dress with some gold detail is pure glam.

Place Cards. After searching online and through Etsy with no luck, one bride decided to create her own. These are gold- dipped feathers that she used for place card settings and in flower arrangements. [Photo: Angela Karen Photography]

Table Numbers. Don't want to commit to a completely gold tabletop? Accent your tables with gold table numbers instead. Gold Wedding Table Numbers ($89)

Seating: You may think no one is paying attention to what color the chairs are, but watch how guests are wowed by gold seats. [Photo: Erich McVey]

Wedding Cake. Of course, you can also add a touch of gold to your wedding cake. [Baker: Amelia George Cakes; Phot : Gaelle Beri of]

Shoes. "While a gold wedding dress may make you look more like a statuette, you can still accessories with gold shoes," says Chertoff. "These open-toe gold pumps with ankle strap add the perfect amount of glam to your wedding-day look, and are secure enough that they won’t slip off as your twirl around the dance floor."
