2017 brings with it new seasons, challenges both good and bad and perhaps the most important day of your life – the day you make the commitment to share your life with another.

With so many new modern trends available for you to use for your special day, planning your décor should not be a challenge.

For stunning décor that will make your wedding “shine” above the rest, opt for copper or rose gold. This touch of metallic compliments most colours and many items can be made instead of bought, to help cut down on extra costs.

Not only is copper easy to find at most hardware stores, you can also buy metallic spray paint from a craft store to create the look you desire.

Copper can be incorporated into the cake, flowers, centrepieces, table numbers, cutlery, lighting and much more. It is hard wearing and it is relatively inexpensive.

“When thinking of wedding décor, especially for a country wedding in the colder months, décor that is warmer in colour allows for the entire look to appear warmer and more ambient. We believe that rose gold and coppers will be making an appearance more often this year,” says Veronica Sookdin, Banqueting co-ordinator at Granny Mouse Country House & Spa.

For DIY inspiration for your wedding, why not try making copper pipe serviettes holders.

Here is how; in three easy steps:

  1. Visit any hardware store
  2. Purchase copper coupler slips in a size that you can fit a napkin through.
  3. Thread a napkin through the ring and it is complete

Tip: Most hardware stores sell these for under R20.

For table numbers, an easy and unique idea is to use large copper coloured foil balloons in various numbers filled with helium and held down with fishing gut.
