Wedding Inspiration: Golden Glow

There’s something about the color gold that makes everything feel instantly chic, warm, and sophisticated all at the same time, so it’s no surprise that gold has become a go-to wedding color for brides. Here are some of our favorite ways to give your nuptials that golden glow.
