You can never have too much metallic, right? Well, done in the right way of course… And how’s that? To start with, it’s scattered over your glorious bridal gown, like the Rue De Seine below. Or found in a pair of statement sandals that you contrast with a soft silk gown like the chic Prea James Cara. Then it’s within your accessories (think Krystal Knight jewellery) or a high slung crossbody bag like the one over Fiona Claire’s slip dress below.

What about in the perfect shades worn low on your nose for your portraits? Or a head to toe gold sequin gown if you’re into full-on glamour? Scroll down to check out Natalie Chan’s creation and the ruffled gold number (reception dress anyone?). There’s also a little understated embroidery to bring in a touch of gold and champagne underlays for the subtle bride.

All of these ways to wear metallic on your wedding day are reflected below, in our fashion editorial from Issue 23. You can scroll down to see 13 of the lovely looks, or buy it in print via on our online store. It’s shot by the talented Jack Steel (who, if you love his work, shoots weddings under Jack Henry) with hair and makeup by Cat Smith for The Future Mrs, who you can also contact for editorial style beauty looks on your big day.
