It’s a dramatic end to the week here on OTW with plenty of purple and gold details that blend beautifully to create a bold and dramatic Maine wedding captured by Casey Durgin Photography. The wedding, held at the bride’s family residence in Neddick, Maine started with a stunning backdrop but was a lot more than just a pretty picture. The details blended the bride and groom, Natalie and Rahul’s, backgrounds; masterfully pulling their different cultures into one fabulous day. Bright with colors, modern with details, and beautiful all the way, this wedding makes for a very happy Friday!

With the Oscars yesterday, I couldn’t help myself from dreaming up a little Hollywood glam inspiration. Maybe it was because Jessica Chastain was, what, like the first star on the red carpet? Or maybe I’m just a big fan of her, but this is Hollywood glam inspiration – Jessica Chastain style. She wore a gorgeous fitted gold gown and deep red berry colored lipstick which is so Hollywood and ever so timeless. So you may ask, why the silver? Well I saw Amy Adams next, and her blue-grey gown looked like pewter to me.. The result makes for a beautiful, wintry palette choice.. gold, deep red and pewter.

Today officially kicks off the crazies of the shopping season which means we’re kicking off more winter wedding posts! There have been a few here and there because I couldn’t help myself, but now we’re in full swing… So today I wanted something perfect for right after Thanksgiving, just into December, something that works a little bit for fall and a little bit for Christmas and winter. And so… it’s the fabulously sexy eggplant (dark purple) and gold wedding palette!
The beginning of December is funny for a wedding. Is it Thanksgiving? Christmas? Winter? That’s what makes this palette choice a perfect mix. The “eggplant”, a rich deep purple, reminds me more of fall or late winter but blending it with gold makes me think a little more Christmas with the sparkles, lights and glam! So today it’s simple, I’m suggesting combining both for a winter color palette that’s both fancy (gold trimmed cake – first photo, gold sequin heels – second photo, elegant gold lined invites – sixth photo) but fally (eggplant flower boutonnieres – forth photo, purple and blush rose bouquet – tenth photo) with a little touch of winter to come (dark purple bridesmaids dress and winter bouquet – third photo). Sprinkle in some jewels, I love all things Kate & Company including this antique amethyst and gold wedding pendant (fifth photo), and amethyst bracelet (seventh photo). I also have a fab Etsy find in the form of the amethyst and topaz earrings (ninth photo)…. all in all our own little inspiration board (post) for the perfect winter (and fall) eggplant purple and gold wedding palette!

Now that we’re officially in November, I’m feeling like it’s acceptable for lots of winter posts so today we’ve founded some of the best in winter accessories… the gold clutch!
I love gold for weddings, especially in the winter. The color is regal and vibrant plus it goes with just about any palette! So for your winter wedding I’m thinking that the gold clutch is an absolute must!! Whether it’s a treat for yourself and you want to splurge (I know we all do it on wedding shoes so why not the wedding clutch as well) or if you’re looking to accessorize your maids with one signature piece (ie the gold clutch) then we’ve found loads of options for you! Some on the very expensive front, and others on the very budget-friendly front, but all perfect for a wedding day gift to yourself as the bride, or a gift for your bridesmaids!
For the bride, a few of the more expensive (but seriously fabulous options). From the mini, edgy limited edition Bottega Veneta (tenth photo), to the gorgeous Christian Louboutin classy gold (eighth photo) and finally the Miu Miu metallic gold leather from Net-a-Porter at $510 (last photo) these clutches are incredible accessories for the bride, especially if you are willing to splurge…
But because I know we can’t all spend hundreds on our bridesmaids gifts (or ourselves) we’ve managed to find some equally fab clutches on a way more reasonable budget! From Etsy seller Lost in Time, I love this incredible ivory gold brocade purse at only $65 (first photo) and another Etsy find from seller Salvage Life with a vintage 1950s glitter gold purse (twelfth photo). Like to shop at department stores? We found this gorgeous Tasha box clutch with metallic gold mesh from Nordstrom’s (ninth photo), and finally for our most budget-friendly gold clutch… stylish gold beading by Karen Marie at $44 (seventh photo).
Gold clutch anyone?
