A massive trend has hit Britain this Winter – the need for glamorous and extravagant sparkles! Whether this is in the form of golden confetti, touches of glitter, sequined gowns or bejewelled accessories – it’s all spot on trend.
The best part of this craze? It goes with any venue or theme – depending on the style you use the sparkle! Here our our suggestions for including this trend in your big day.
Dressed in Glitter & Gold
Do you want this shimmering gold look to be the lasting memory of your Wedding? Dress your Bridesmaids in over-the-top, golden gowns to wow your guests, whilst still getting to wear white yourself. If the full-length shimmer is too outrageous for you – or the girls – then you can find, a little more expensive, accented sequined dresses.
Glitter or jewelled accessories tend to go best with simple gowns, so if you want to add a sparkle to a lace dress this is the perfect way! Tie in your shoes, jewellery and hair using crystals of diamonds. A sparkling, ribbon belt or sequined heels are understated and classy, and still on trend. If you want to match to your sequin bridesmaids, then glitter nails or makeup can pull your style into the theme.
If you want to be a statement bride and be the shining beauty of the event, then there are some stunning bridal, sequin dresses on the market for this trend. White or clear shimmering beads make a sophisticated looking gown that is still in line with tradition, or even shiny little pearls sewn into the dress. Another way to incorporate glitter is to have ‘hot spots’ or clusters. On well-designed dresses these look like a gradient rainfall of sparkle. The key to pulling off this look is choosing a base colour and making sure you don’t go over-the-top.
How much glitter is too much glitter?
When planning your Wedding day you should have a mantra in your head ‘Will this still look good in 20 years?’
Small touches of sparkle using decorations is actually a fine art. This is because it is extremely hard to plan what everything will look like together on the day – unlike decorating your bedroom where you can put it all together and see if it works.
As per usual, we suggest Pinterest as a source for inspiration when it comes to décor. Pin EVERYTHING with sparkles to a board, and at the end you can go through and decide what you would like and what would be too much.
We suggest a light dusting across your whole venue.
