After numerous requests we have (finally!) added gold mercury glass votives to our summer 2016 collection. Behold them in their sparkly wonder!
Before the mail-woman drops the votives at our door (and I'm hoping she doesn't actually drop them this time!) they're already booking up. In anticipation of their arrival here's some gold mercury glass inspiration.
First up, we've got mercury glass paired with a classic, formal, vintage-inspired table setting, with gold flatware similar to the style we rent. I like how the cool-toned patina table balances with the warmth of the gold elements. This image is a photograph by Abby Jiu Photography of Kristen + Kevin's classy wedding. I also love the mismatched vintage crystal a lot to this tabletop. Luckily, Krista and I have been building up our glassware collection with help from my glassware hoarding bartender husband @shanethebartender!
Next, I've chosen a couple of images from Gold William Aiken House Wedding, a wedding by Virgil Bunao that was featured on Southern Weddings. I like how when gold is used here with a cool, grey linen and other neutral tones darker mood and feel. I think the urn and neutral florals pair perfectly with the brassy, coper-gold votives. We recently brought in some wooden urns such as the one featured below, and some other dark votives that pair well with gold mercury glass to create a similar look.
Neutrals are also a major feature in this Fall Wedding Inspiration shoot featured on Pop Sugar. The gold elements, including gold flatware are grounded by all of the raw wood table. If you wanted to recreate this look you could rent harvest tables from Halifax Harvest Tables, our gold mercury glass, gold flatware, and custom signage, and some greens and other earthy neutrals from one of our excellent local florists.
Gold mercury glass works well in a nautical inspired wedding too, as is demonstrated through this succulent and navy inspiration found on on Brides. Amanda from Humble Burdock Farms did something similar for Bliss the Bridal Event this year, so if you're looking to recreate this look Amanda is your lady.
