The glamour of gold makes it an appealing choice as an accent that can be used elegantly throughout your day, from a pair of shoes, to the cake, to the invitation itself. The trend in gold foil reflects this, and we’ve added it for the decorative border framing the invitation, a look repeated on the stunning black-and-white cake. The black envelope lining adds drama, echoing the black belt accessorizing the bride’s dress. The groom’s tux features a more modern style tie on a classic jacket. A great combination of glamour and elegance!
