Copper wedding details : cuckoo for copper

Copper wedding details are *so* on point for 2015/2016, but never you fear- they are timeless too. Think of all the fabby French kitchens just filled to the brim with gleaming copper pans, knobs, fobs, and the like. My childhood home was filled with hammered, burnished, gleaming, and muddied copper details throughout Mom’s cookware and tableware, and who doesn’t love a solid copper Moscow mule mug? One of our favorite copper weddings (with seafoam accents- yummmm) was featured in UnVeiled, and I still think back fondly on the hammered copper bar fronts, patinated copper bourbon bar, copper place card name placards, and more. Below, we rounded up the latest little copper details + nuances you can deploy to add a tasteful metallic moment into your big day.

calligraphy copper name cards

This is a little snap of a much larger vertical custom escort card board we designed and had produced by our floral team, Blossoms. Elizabeth Porcher Jones produced the calligraphy, and we had Blossoms hand-cut and patinated each copper card, then nail them into the board with tiny copper carpet tacks. Voilà!
