Gold Glam Wedding Reception Ideas

Let love shine! Tablescape ideas to celebrate a golden groom and blushing bride! To create a radiant reception, pair a striking metallic color scheme with delicate details of pink and white. Rose centerpieces offer a romantic blush of pink, and gold taper candles and string lights layered with tulle create a warm fairytale glow. Set an enchanting scene with our ideas for decorating, centerpieces, favors and more.

Idea 1: Confetti balloons are on the rise

To create an eye-catching custom party look, use a funnel to slip in faux rose petals or small pieces of confetti before inflating your balloons! Attach a bouquet of confetti balloons to a centerpiece, or attach one to the back of each chair.

Idea 2: Turn standard seating into a dreamy sweetheart table

Set the tone for your big day with signs you can display as keepsakes for years to come! Drape white tulle over each chair before hanging each sign using double-sided tape. These also make for a romantic picture of the bride and groom at their special party.

Idea 3: Frame place cards in sparkling gold

Glam up your table for each guest of honor! Print out or handwrite each guest’s name on white paper, then display in a gold glitter frame instead of traditional place cards. They’ll be delighted when you tell them they can take them home!

Idea 4: Create simple and sparkly floral centerpieces

Break up the strong metallic details of the party with subtle touches of pastel. Place blush pink roses in sparkly gold votives and group together as a centerpiece to create a special romantic touch!

Idea 5: Create a fairytale cake table

Let guests admire the cake as a work of art by displaying it front and center on its own table surrounded by dazzling decorations. Balloons, gold fluffy decorations and taper candles all correspond perfectly with a gold table runner and faux flower petals. Drape tulle as a backdrop with strings of lights twinkling behind it to create a heavenly photo backdrop for the cake cutting.

Idea 6: How to create the perfect place setting

Mix and match gold-rimmed drinkware and plates to create a fairytale tablescape. Follow time-tested tradition and layer a charger, dinner plate and soup bowl, then select transparent flutes and cups for champagne and water. A patterned napkin like this lace-inspired one contrasts beautifully with a white tablecover.
