Theme Ideas: Classic Ivory & Gold

An ivory and gold colour palette is the perfect choice for brides dreaming of a glamorous wedding. From your dream dress and accessories to opulent reception décor, use ivory as your base colour and add some extravagance with sophisticated details in gold.

Elegant Stationery

Elegant Stationery

A classic ivory and gold theme allows plenty of design options for your wedding stationery. From simple white cards with gold letters to intricate patterns, make sure to choose a specific style and incorporate it in all the elements of your wedding to make a coherent design. With its elegant geometric shapes, lovely floral motifs and decadent golden shades, an Art Deco design can be your main source of inspiration. Weddingstar has adorable Art Deco-inspired laser embossed wedding invitations, place cards and accessory cards in ivory and gold and you can also use their calligraphy marker in gold to add personal touches to your stationery.

Opulent Décor

If you want reception décor that stands out, you need to find the right balance of ivory and gold tones. We love golden wooden chairs paired with ivory and gold table skirts and dinnerware and lush white flower centrepieces. This timeless look can be simple and clean or very decadent with plenty of ornaments.


If you are looking for stylish decorations to incorporate in your theme, Weddingstar offers an amazing range of wedding décor in ivory and gold and we adore their decorative pearl garland which can be used for anything from centrepieces and table decorations to bridal bouquets and wall ornaments. You can adorn the chairs with their tulle and ribbon bows with silk rose and use their gorgeous Beverly Clark candle adorned with lace-inspired beadwork in ivory and gold to make elegant centrepieces and add romantic light to your venue. The pearl and vintage gold wire ornamental garland can also be used for many purposes from personalising your floral arrangements to wrapping napkins and decorating your wedding cake, while decorative heart ornaments are a lovely addition to bonbonniere or centrepieces.

Beautiful Details

Beautiful Details

To add luxury and extravagance to your ivory and gold wedding theme, you can use statement details like lavish cake decorations or candles and flowers painted in gold. Sometimes even the smallest details can make a difference, so consider metallic print paper straws for your decadent cocktails or engraved acrylic chair markers for the bride and groom. You can toast with style with the Venice design wedding champagne flutes from Weddingstar that feature two tone golden brush finish and Swarovski crystal detailing and match it with their Venice design cake serving set.



Don’t forget to thrill your guests with a fabulous bonbonniere that complements your wedding theme. You can use golden glitter and glue to add DIY touch to any wedding favour or purchase one of the deluxe gifts from Weddingstar. We think packaging is very important, so if you want to present your bonbonniere in a stylish box, we recommend Weddingstar’s Art Deco cylinder box with clear lid. You could also use the transparent chair favour boxes which showcases a tasty treat inside. Add personalised ribbon, box wrap or favour tag for that prefect finishing touch.
